Jim Barr will facilitate an overview of Ida Tarbell and other investigative journalists of TR’s day. Tarbell, whose investigation of Standard Oil contributed to the breakup (“trust busting”) of that and other monopolies, was one of the most influential people of the 20th century. How did the media perceive their roles and responsibilities in TR’s time … and how does that compare to today? Everyone welcome for discussion of historic and current events!
