The Chicago Examiner (Chicago, IL, USA)

4 July 1900

The Chicago Examiner, a William Randolph Hearst publication, began in 1902 as a morning edition to complement the evening edition paper, the Chicago American. Introduced at the cost of one penny, the Examiner set off a circulation war with the Chicago Tribune. The Examiner merged with the Chicago Herald, which Hearst bought in 1918.
