This week in class, we’re reading "Think journalism’s a tough field today? Try being a reporter in the Gilded Age" by Randall S. Sumpter.

In the informational text, “Think journalism’s a tough field today? Try being a reporter in the Gilded Age,” Randall S. Sumpter discusses the struggles of honest journalism during the 19th century and today.
