With the decline of the pulpit and pamphleteering, and before the development of other mass media such as radio or, to some extent, film, newspapers were the main point of contact with the outside world (Koss, 1981, 9). Secondly, the many inherent qualities of newspapers as a form of communication lend themselves to encourage the use of the press as a source. For example, newspapers have to be seen as a two-way form of communication, not as editors and owners of the press imposing their beliefs on a ‘tabula rasa’.

Bovril, for example, ran a half-page advertisement in the Illustrated London News which claimed that ‘Bovril gives life to the soldier faint from loss of blood’. It showed a wounded soldier with one arm in a sling, signifying a minor wound, looking healthy, strong and in no pain while drinking a cup of Bovril. Here, the advertisement implied that wounds inflicted in war were minor and painless, and that because they were so, they could be treated through consuming ‘liquid life’ Bovril (Illustrated London News, 24 February 1900, 275).
