What role did the newspaper play in the starting of the Spanish American War?

Randolph Hearst reportedly stated to his newspapermen, "...you furnish the photographs, I'll furnish the war!" The 1898 "Splended Little War" was the 19th century's Desert Storm; Ted Turner's CNN was the newspaper equivalent for the 1991 "100 Hour War", which received about the same amount of excitement in the US as did the '98 war.
