Question of the Day

Yesterday's question of the day asked: One of the earliest films about news has to be "The Making of a Newspaper," a 1914 black-and-white, silent film featuring ... which publication? That would be The Los Angeles Herald-Examiner

As for today's question, here it is: Speaking of the Herald-Examiner, founder William Randolph Hearst established the publication as a Los Angeles counterpart to another of his California publications, the San Francisco Examiner -- but what was Hearst's other, considerably more political motivation for founding the Herald-Examiner?
