Yellow journalism, press that is based on sensationalism, pandering for sales, and a lack of commitment to the best practices of journalism such as objectivity and verification.  When newspapers are nearly indiscernible from tabloid gossip rags, they are practicing yellow journalism.  Voltaire said, “In the case of news, we should always wait for the sacrament of confirmation.”
