Muckraking
During the Progressive era, a number of writers articulated and promoted a wide variety of reform causes that stemmed from such serious problems as corrupt politics, economic monopolies, harmful foods and medicines, and endangered natural resources. A small number of journals, most notably McClure’s, led the movement, but certain novels, especially Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, also contributed. Major muckraking journalists included Lincoln Steffens and Ida Tarbell. Both highly popular and profitable for roughly a decade, muckraking journalism declined in importance just prior to World War I.
