Doris Kearns Goodwin talked about her book, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism, on the technological and economic changes brought on by the industrial revolution in the United States. She suggests that these changes widened the gulf between rich and poor throughout the country. She writes about a team of journalists with whom Roosevelt established connections from the then influential McClure’s Magazine, which was founded by S.S. McClure. This legendary group of reporters included Ida Tarbell, Ray Stannard Baker, Lincoln Steffens and William Allen White. The group would later appropriate Roosevelt’s derogatory term “muckraker” as their “badge of honor” as they wrote stories about corruption and politics. Goodwin tells the story of researching and writing this book, as well as some of the primary materials she drew upon for resource material. close
