The new journalism
This new journalism came right when the progressivism began. This journalism is not like normal newspaper articles, it digs into companies to find out the truth. The people who wrote this stuff were called muckrakers. One muckraker named Jacob Riis wrote a book called " How the other side lives " .
It talks about how the slum part of town was. Jacob Riis also had a friend named
Theodore Roosevelt, who also was a muckraker. Theodore also had another friend named Upton Sinclair. He and Upton Attacted the meat-packing industry. They needed each others support in order to do this. After that they did a lot of other things they thought they could succeed in.
