Newswire items originally published between 1903 and 1928. They didn't fact-check much in those days. Articles include:

BUMPS ON HIS HEAD TELL WEATHER!

LOOK WHAT THEY IN PARIS DO, LADIES' EARS BARED TO VIEW!

WIFE NAMES 185 RIVALS, ALL HOT LETTER WRITERS

JACK LONDON DICTATING STORY FROM SPIRIT LAND

WHERE WAS LUCIFER?

This was mildly amusing. It isn't a headline book (for some reason I thought it was), it's complete articles from the early 1900s. And some really weird ones there are. Some are definitely preaching claiming to be unbiased news (or at least, accurate news). Some are just...weird. I have to wonder--did people believe all of these, or did they expect some entertainment mixed in with their news?
