My grandparents have the first issue of Life magazine, published back in 1930. It's still in pretty good condition. I especially like the fact that it features Fort Peck Dam, which is near where I live in Montana. Yay Montana. And it's really neat to see all the old advertisements for cars and the little featurettes about people in other countries. I'm not exactly sure where they got it, though, because my grandparents weren't born until '42.

Isn't that a tabloid to begin with?

I don't know if anyone has already said it but it's always propaganda (of course no every single, little newspaper will be subject to this but the major ones are).

During the 20th century they needed to show the war as a "heroic intervention" which would get more people up for it and involved and needed to keep up the news to raise morale as the army success depended a lot on the home front.

Today the US has a completely organized military and a steady amount of recruits, they're in regions where they fight for resources and strategic positions, nothing they can really show as heroic (unless when the terrorists fight back on the home front, that they love to use) and they'd rather that the ones who support the war are the only ones who are well informed.

a sign of good times is when the worst thing to happen in the news is a guy hurt when a dildo hit his face in an accident
