|Abstract||Examines "the evolving world of American journalism, from the late 1800s to today ... Budding reporters learn how [Nellie] Bly, who so desired to work in the male-dominated world of reporting, willingly feigned her own insanity to be committed to a mental asylum so she could go undercover and write about it. Providing a ... look at early social reform writers and reporters who helped transform journalism, the book also introduces young readers to four famous American muckrakers--Jacob Riis, Ida Tarbell, Ida B. Wells, and Upton Sinclair--and concludes with a look at some of the modern era's most exciting and accomplished journalists"--Amazon.com.|
