Comic Book

I really like how this reading was a comic book. It added was refreshing to read instead of the past readings we have had. The reading was the story of how much corruption President Harding allowed to happen during his administration. There was a ton, including embezzlement and other crimes. Harding had a child with his mistress. Most of the head staff members of the Ohio gang ended up killing themselves because of the guilt and the reputation. This is interesting to see the political side to crimes. As well as taking a look inside of the journalism.

The other reading took a look inside of muckraking. Muckrakers are journalist who began to investigate further and further into their subject. Within the reading, we read a story from the McClure’s Magazine, called The Shame of Minneapolis. I found this very interesting how much detail this went into.
