This chapter focuses on the fact that despite the continued commercialisation, the press remained inextricably tied with the world of politics. It discusses that directs subsidisation of newspapers remained common and that political partisanship dominated over the editorial pages to influence the domestic and, crucially for their purposes, overseas news selected by newspaper editors. It also investigates British mass communication and constructive imperialism. It also examines the imperial press system and tariff reform. It discusses the Canadian-American reciprocity and the press.

Keywords:   commercialisation, political partisanship, newspapers, mass communication, imperialism, imperial press system, tariff reform
