Who were the muckrakers, and what impact did they have on American society?
Muckracker was a term used to describe American journalist who brought issues they found about society to light and created controversy. The muckrakers played a highly visible role during the Progressive Era, like Herbert Croly defended the growth government for democratic purposes through his writing The Promise of American Life. In this book, Croly delivered his argument for a planned economy, increased spending on education and the creation of a society based on the “brotherhood of mankind”; Fredrick Winslow Taylor’s The Principles of Scientific Management systematized reorganization of Corporations and Industry on scientific principles. Taylor believed workers had too much power in the factory. In purpose to pursue efficiency, decisions should be made by trained managers; Ida Tarbell’s History of the Standard Oil and Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle were two principal works favoring reform for a greater regulation; Lincoln Steffens, the first one to strike by publishing an article in McClure’s magazine, exposed political corruption in many big cities; Samuel Hopkins Adams’ The Great American Fraud exosed false claims about patent medicines, and other talented journalists namely Ray Stannard Baker, George Creel, and Brand Whitlock exposed waste, corruption, and scandal operated at the local and state level. Those muckrakers and their works had conributed to the Progressive Era in US history.
The influence of the muckrakers began to appear around 1900 in Progressive Era. The Progressive Era was a time period of intense social and political reform in American history lasting from the 1890s to the 1920s.

In what ways was the election of 1912 significant?
The 1912 presidential campaign involved four candidates: Theodore Roosevelt as a Progressive, Eugene Debs run as a Socilialist, Wison and Taft represented two major parties. They all shared a fundamental presumption that the old idea of do-nothing government was bankrupt; present day conditions required dynamic measures to advance the general welfare. However, they contrasted in the nature and degree of their activism. After the Republicans renominated Taft, Roosevelt’s supporters shot the tradition, formed the Progressive party, and designated Roosevelt. Albeit some Democratic progressives bolstered Roosevelt, the split in the Republican party prompted Woodrow Wilson’s success. Having won a larger part in both places of congress and additionally the presidential election, the Democrats viably held national power surprisingly since the Civil War.
The 1912 election was important in four main ways: First, it was a high-water mark for Progressivism. In fact, the election was the first to include presidential primaries. The election brought fundamental changes in American politics suggesting the historical significance of the Progressive Party. High percentage of the the popular vote or as many electoral votes received by the third party on the American political scene in the 20th century was recognized as an extraordinary. Neither before nor after 1912, no third party for the presidency gained that large number of supporters and votes; Second, the election gave Democrats effective national power for the first time since the Civil War. Wilson’s winning in the election made Democrats became the majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Holding such a stable power in the house and senate, Democrats proved their ability to stand up from the fallen of power during the severe depression of the 1890s.
Third, the election of Wilson brought southerness back into the circle of national and international affairs in a significant way for the first time since the Civil War. During Wilson’s presidency, the name of the southerners had having its good reputation along with the Progressive legislation. Moreover, Five of Wilson’s ten cabinet members were born in the South, three still resided there, and William Jennings Bryan, the secretary of state, was an idol of the southern masses. Fourth, the election of 1912 had begun to alter the character of the Republican party. Although majority of professionals remained, the the defection of the Bull Moose Progressives had weakened the party’s progressive wing. The leaders of the Republican party that would return to power in the 1920s would be more conservative in tone and temperament. (Tindall, 2007).
