To whom is William Randolph Hearst alleged to have said, “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war”?

William Randolph Hearst is alleged to have said, “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war” to artist Frederic Remington, who was covering conditions in Cuba at a time when newspaper publisher Hearst was interested in fomenting war with Spain, then in charge of Cuba.

The Spanish-American War of 1898 resulted in part from the trumpeting of Spanish atrocities in newspapers controlled by Hearst and his rivals.
