John Bull (magazine)

John Bull Magazine was the name of a company founded by Theodore Hook in 1820 British weekly magazine. The written witty and angriffig Tory sheet which chose as a target Queen Caroline, was an instant success.

Under Horatio Bottomley it came in 1906 to a start-up. The sheet was in the First World War with slogans like "Hang the Kaiser! " And "Make Hey Hun Pay! " To popular organ excessive anti- German war propaganda and distinguished himself in the interwar period with ultra patriotic sensationalist reporting in terms of a Yellow Press

After 1945, the magazine was characterized by high-quality illustrations and literary contributions. In style similar to American The Saturday Evening Post, the paper offered, for example, short stories by Agatha Christie, Nicholas Monsarrat, NJ Crisp, Gerald Kersh, JB Priestley and CS Forester.

After losing market share in 1960 in the Journal Today, The New John Bull has been renamed. But it was not possible to appeal to the younger audience. Despite a circulation of about 700,000, the loss- weekly paper in 1964 pro forma has been merged with another magazine, but de facto set.
