In the early 1930s, William Randolph Hearst, the colorful newspaper magnate, was pro-labor, and his papers were in the habit of concocting stories that enhanced his stand. An example: In a 1932 issue of the New York Mirror, an article described hunger marchers storming Buckingham Palace in London. To back up the story, the paper ran a photograph reputedly showing such a scene. In actuality, the photograph had been taken in 1929 and the crowd of people in it was anxiously waiting for news about the health of ailing King George V.
