Interpretations of historical events change depending on who is writing the history. The victor of a war will obviously be the one who writes the history of the event. This may bias the record according to their perspective. On the other hand the defeated of a war may want to write an entirely different version but may not be in a position to do so. This is the essence of the famous quote, "History is written by the victors." Sir Winston Churchill.
History can be written in retrospect and often doing so reduces the accuracy of the record. It is the duty of a historian to impartially record at the time of the event or as soon as practicable to ensure accuracy. For instance both King Arthur and Robyn Hued (Robin Hood) was written hundreds of years after their supposed deaths and thus is more fiction than historical fact. Where possible Archaeological research can be used to either prove or disprove or question historical records.
The best historical records occur when more than one historian of differing backgrounds concur by writing about the event as it happens. This occurs rarely in ancient history due to record loss, but does occur more frequently in modern history. However, in modern times it has become the vogue to attempt to rewrite accepted history through the power of the Internet, to gain political leverage or support. Frequently attempts are made by fringe groups to enter false or heavily biased rewrites of historical events into the public consciousness.

before people wrote on paper, they wrote on trees. they used a rock to carve in what thy wanted to write. after they cut down the tree and gave it to the person they wanted to write to or kept it them selves.... so when they went to the grocery store, you would have to bring a tree with you because your grocery list would be on the tree.

Yellow Journalism is a mutated division of Journalism that goes against the key principles of reporting as an unbiased and objective tool for conveying the news. Yellow Journalism is "journalism that exploits, distorts, or exaggerates the news to create sensations and attract readers." Yellow journalism 'believes' in a gross misreporting and underreporting of facts, in playing up news that is likely to create a frenzy, stringing an emotional chord with the masses, feeding the appetite for sensationalism, scandal mongering and exciting public opinion
The Battle on Park Row, New York, between William Randolph Hearst's Journal and Joseph Pulitzers World in the late nineteenth century, marked the advent of Yellow Journalism. The role of Pulitzer as primary nurturer comes as surprise to all those who have connected the name only with America's most celebrated Journalistic Award.
In the midst of the War of Words, Hearst lured the Richard Outcault popular artist of the Sunday Worlds comic strip, 'The Yellow Kid', (the then in Vogue cartoon that was prominent and conspicuous and stood out because of use of yellow ink that shone through all the black and white) to the Journal. Pulitzer not to take defeat lying down and had the World continues a rendition of the 'Yellow Kid', even though the artist no longer worked for the paper. And thus the phrase came in to being, with a focal point not the colour but the content that was increasingly tainted in nature.

The three stages of knighthood helped insure that only the finest could become knights. Starting as early as seven, children serve in the manor. They learn to serve, obey and learn various skills like hunting and riding houses. Becoming a teenager marks the beginning of the next stage; becoming a squire. They learn how to take care of their equipment, learn tactics for battle, and begin formal weapon training. This stage lasts until the squire can prove himself worthy for knighthood. After the accolade, the ceremony in which the squire is awarded knight status, the knight is now responsible for protecting his lord's land.
