According to the scholar Alfred Hornung, “The Muckrakers grew up in this literary environment and started out as dime novelists and/or historical romancers before they turned to political and social issues as themes for their fictions.”8 This is exactly what Upton Sinclair did as a writer. He had written other books that had not been even half the success that “The Jungle” became. “The Jungle” was written with such horror and emotion directed towards the meatpacking industry, Sinclair was able to convince the public that it was finally time for a change, and a drastic one at that. The mix of this “overdrawn fiction”9 with his actual experiences from when he studied the meatpacking industry was just enough to reel people in and get them interested in what was really going on all around
She repetitively discusses the process she went through in order to get an interview with Henrietta’s family and friends, more specifically with Deborah. Not only does she personally interviews family member and friends but she also discusses HeLa cells and other essential information by finding credible sources. For example, “According to Judith Greenburg, director of the Division of Genetics and Developmental Biology at the National Institute of General Medical Science, the NIH now has “very stringent guidelines” requiring consent for any tissues collected for their banks.” (Skloot 318) She cites scholarly articles and credible sources to establish her knowledge in the subject before writing a novel about Henrietta’s life, as well as to show the readers the credibility of her sources. This particular act conveys to the reader that Skloot wanted to be concise and precise while informing the audience about Henrietta’s

This reflects how corruption can leak leaked through the government since the beginning of a country’s formation. Political stability soon returned when the Institutional Revolutionary Party dominated the government, which was created in support of interest of workers, peasants, and other disadvantaged groups. This party supported these interests because they wanted to give back to the people who got the worst end of the governmental corruption. After World War II, the country faced great economic expansion, political stability, and the rise of the middle class. This brought even more corruption within the government and the elites since the economic boom in the late 1970s benefitted only a tiny percentage of the population.

We start to take things in hands, we become passionate about diabetes, we want to help other diabetic people, and so, we become more curious, and proactive. Maybe we will make a discovery that can help others later, for example, when we eat this or this food, our blood sugar level goes down. And this is more precious than everything. With my glucometer, I tried different medicinal plants, foods, types of physical exercises, and I did learn a few tricks that helped me a lot. And I verified them hundreds of times.
Satire also allows an argument for both sides and shows that sometimes ‘experts’ can be wrong.

He analyzed the fact that these businesses can lobby for their interests while individuals cannot. Although some coverage of this issue made news sources, Stewart presented it at length with an authentic source and in a comedic and memorable fashion. He caught viewers’ attention

As a result, the media plays such an important role in helping us understand and in showing how some scandals are very specific to time, place, and culture which is why people react differently to them. To begin, Barry served as the second Mayor of the District of Columbia from 1979 to 1991, and again as the fourth mayor from 1995 to 1999.

Muckrakers basically were the group of journalists and members of the press who undertook the mission of investigating and revealing all of the corruptions and wrong doings, which were persistent among the big businesses or even in the government to the public. The name “Muckrakers” was the nickname given by President “Theodore Roosevelt” to these journalists who were cleaning the muck of the American society. These were the people who used their pen as a weapon to tackle and combat the negatives and evils that existed in the society, and they were the one who spread the calls to the public of the American society to work upon and fix those issues concerning the society and economy as a whole including the political problems as well.

Lastly the tone within this essay will be firm and direct. This is because when talking to the government the ideas within the text must be clear and concise.
In fact, it is from the poor and the underclass that have the most prison inmates in the United States (Henslin 211). The reason the criminal justice system is so focused on the working class is because if they become enraged, it could lead to a rising of a revolt. In an effort to please the lower classes, the courts will occasionally go after the executives of corporations and give the case major publicity to provide evidence of the "fairness" of the criminal justice system (Henslin 211). Since bigger corporations don 't have a punishment to fit the crime, their white-collar crimes are continued. Whereas, the poor 's punishment for minor crimes cause them to believe they are truly criminals.
