The Sun

As cities on the east cost became more industrialized, a way of spreading news in a cheap efficient way became more of an interest to producers, and consumers. With the penny press, spreading news in a widespread fashion became possible. The Sun was a cheap paper published in New York in the 1830’s which attempted to feed the demand for information in society. The Sun was well know for its innovative stories, its good coverage of crime and violence, as well as its tendency to sensationalize news.
