Truth was an established newspaper published in Sydney and owned by William Willis, Adolphus Taylor and Patrick Crick. Norton worked for Truth and became editor and part-owner in 1891, but he was soon dismissed for repeated drunkenness. Through extensive litigation, Norton acquired the newspaper in 1896. The content of Truth became even more sensational under Norton's ownership. Truth newspapers were published in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland before the Western Australian edition was established in 1903. For a few months prior to this, a Western Australian edition had been published in Melbourne.
Issues (1903 - 1931) of this newspaper have been digitised as part of the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program of the National Library of Australia in cooperation with the State Library of Western Australia.
