 Yellow journalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yellow journalism is a pejorative reference to journalism that features scandal-mongering, sensationalism, jingoism or other unethical or unprofessional practices by news media organizations or individual journalists.
Moreover, journalism historians have noted that yellow journalism was largely confined to New York City, and that newspapers in the rest of the country did not follow their lead.
While bland infotainment and unethical corporate media practices may be considered "yellow" in the sense of "cowardly," the term yellow journalism traditionally refers to news organizations for whom some combination of sensationalism, profiteering, propaganda, journalistic bias or jingoism takes dominance over factual reporting and the profession's public trust.

Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition is the fourth game in the Pokémon video game series in Japan, and the third in North America and Europe.
The name (and Pikachu on the cover) is due to the fact that Trainers get Pikachu as their starter Pokémon (like Ash Ketchum did) instead of being able to choose between Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle, although you can receive all three during the course of this game.
Pokémon Yellow was not one of the original Pokémon releases, but a new version based upon the extremely popular Pokémon anime.

Yellow fever is a viral disease that is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected mosquitoes.

 Yellow Tourmaline
Since not all rough crystals show the brilliant yellow on being found, some of the stones will have to be treated at circa 700 degrees Celsius in an oven before they can be cut.
Larger yellow Tourmalines, however, rarely occur even in Malawi; after all, only about 10 per cent of all the mined stones are suitable for jewellery.
And ever since then the yellow Tourmalines from Malawi not only resemble fresh lemons in their pleasant colour, but also in their fine scent – at least until they have been cut.

 How the Yellow Ribbon Became a National Folk Symbol (The American Folklife Center, Library of Congress)
Some assertions on this subject have verged on the pugnacious; nearly all have made reference to the song "Round Her Neck She Wore A Yellow Ribbon." That song was recorded for the Archive of Folk Culture in 1938 by Sidney Robertson Cowell in California, but it is much older.
Ultimately, the thing that makes the yellow ribbon a genuinely traditional symbol is neither its age nor its putative association with the American Civil War, but rather its capacity to take on new meanings, to fit new needs and, in a word, to evolve.
Because the yellow ribbon is very much a living tradition, there is no way to tell who among us may help to steer its course, or in what direction.

 R. F. Outcault, The Father of the American Sunday Comics
The answer is that he was the first successful comic strip character to achieve a popularity so great that he not only increased the sales of newspapers carrying him, but he was also the first to demonstrate that a comic strip character could be merchandised profitably.
One of the myths about the Yellow Kid is that Pulitzer and Hearst both claimed ownership of the Yellow Kid, the case went to court, and the decision resulted in a Yellow Kid comic in each newspaper.
Because of the furor over the Yellow Kid, the World and the Journal became widely known as "The Yellow Kid Papers." This was eventually shortened to "The Yellow Papers," which soon became "Yellow Journalism" when emotions increased even further over the Spanish-American War.

 Yellow Journalism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
After Pulitzer began publishing color comic sections that included a strip entitled "The Yellow Kid" (right) in early 1896, this type of paper was labeled "yellow journalism." Drawn by R.F. Outcault, the popular (if now-unfunny) strip became a prize in the struggle between Pulitzer and Hearst in the New York newspaper wars.
The character was portrayed in keychains and collector cards, appeared on stage and even had a short-lived magazine named after him.
The papers themselves trumpeted their concern for the "people." At the same time, yellow journalists choked up the news channels on which the common people depended with shrieking, gaudy, sensation-loving, devil-may-care kinds of journalism.
