In this speech Roosevelt termed, for the first time, journalists as muckrakers SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 1906 In Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress you may recall the description of the Man with the Muck-rake, the man who could look no way but downward, with the muck-rake in his hand; who was offered a celestial crown for his muck-rake, but who would neither look up nor regard the crown he was offered, but continued to rake to himself the filth of the floor. In Pilgrim's Progress the Man with the Muck-rake is set forth as the example of him whose vision is fixed on carnal instead of on spiritual things. Yet he also typifies the man who in this life consistently refuses to see aught that is lofty, and fixes his eyes with solemn intentness only on that which is vile and debasing. Now, it is very necessary that we should not flinch from seeing what is vile and debasing. There is filth on the floor and it must be scraped up with the muck-rake; and there are times and places where this service is the most needed of all the services that can be performed. But the man who never does anything else, who never thinks or speaks or writes, save of his feats with the muck-rake, speedily becomes, not a help to society, not an incitement to good, but one of the most potent forces for evil. There are, in the body politic, economic and social, many and grave evils, and there is urgent necessity for the sternest war upon them. There should be relentless exposure of and attack upon every evil man whether politician or business man, every evil practice, whether in politics, in business, or in social life. I hail as a benefactor every writer or speaker, every man who, on the platform, or in book, magazine, or newspaper, with merciless severity makes such attack, provided always that he in his turn remembers that the attack is of use only if it is absolutely truthful. . . To assail the great and admitted evils of our political and industrial life with such crude and sweeping generalizations as to include decent men in the general condemnation means the searing of the public conscience. There results a general attitude either of cynical belief in and indifference to public corruption or else of a distrustful inability to discriminate between the good and the bad. Either attitude is fraught with untold damage to the country as a whole. The fool who has not sense to discriminate between what is good and what is bad is well-nigh as dangerous as the man who does discriminate and yet chooses the bad. There is nothing more distressing to every good patriot, to every good American, than the hard, scoffing spirit which treats the allegation of dishonesty in a public man as a cause for laughter. Such laughter is worse than the crackling of thorns under a pot, for it denotes not merely the vacant mind, but the heart in which high emotions have been choked before they could grow to fruition.
In this speech, Roosevelt wants journalists to write honestly, but not focus so much on uncovering corruption that they are unable to see anything else. Which of the following lines best supports the main idea of the speech? "In Pilgrim's Progress the Man with the Muck-rake is set forth as the example of him whose vision is fixed on carnal instead of on spiritual things." "Yet he also typifies the man who in this life consistently refuses to see aught that is lofty, and fixes his eyes with solemn intentness only on that which is vile and debasing." "...who never thinks or speaks or writes, save of his feats with the muck-rake, speedily becomes, not a help to society, not an incitement to good, but one of the most potent forces for evil." "There should be relentless exposure of and attack upon every evil man, whether politician or business man, every evil practice, whether in politics, in business, or in social life."
Yes your correct its C.
In the final paragraph, how does Roosevelt attempt to persuade his audience? By appealing to the audience's emotions By appealing to the audience's sense of right and wrong By appealing to the audience's good taste By appealing to the audience's logic
Roosevelt is warning against the misery misguided information and laughter at another’s expense will cause. Roosevelt's role in the speech is most similar to that of a father to his children journalist in an expose preacher in the pulpit teacher in front of his class
I have C for this one as well... I also think it's B.
For the 2nd question i have a change in thought i believe it would be A.
That's what I had thought at first!!
Glad you think that too. and i believe i would go with preacher in the puplit
The early light of morning lay rosy red upon the mountains, and a fresh breeze rustled through the fir trees and set their ancient branches waving to and fro. The sound awoke Heidi and she opened her eyes. The roaring in the trees always stirred a strong emotion within her and seemed to draw her irresistibly to them. So she jumped out of bed and dressed herself as quickly as she could, but it took her some time even then, for she was careful now to be always clean and tidy. When she went down her ladder she found her grandfather had already left the hut. He was standing outside looking at the sky and examining the landscape as he did every morning, to see what sort of weather it was going to be. Little pink clouds were floating over the sky, that was growing brighter and bluer with every minute, while the heights and the meadow lands were turning gold under the rising sun, which was just appearing above the topmost peaks. "O how beautiful! how beautiful! Good-morning, grandfather!" cried Heidi, running out. "What, you are awake already, are you?" he answered, giving her a morning greeting. Then Heidi ran round to the fir trees to enjoy the sound she loved so well, and with every fresh gust of wind which came roaring through their branches she gave a fresh jump and cry of delight.
Read the lines below and answer the question that follows. She was careful now to be always clean and tidy. He was standing outside looking at the sky and examining the landscape as he did every morning. What do these lines imply about Grandfather's household? Grandfather is particular about household routines. Grandfather is insensitive to changes in the household. Grandfather seldom takes time to care for children. Grandfather tends to be forgetful about little tasks.
I have C.
Hmm im stuck between a or b because it specifically says "as he did every morning" and that to me could be either one. what do you think?
I would go with b. Because it says "She was careful now"
Its not d or c i would say a only because insensitive means to showing or feeling no concern for others' feelings. and i don't believe he doesn't care but i believe he is particular in how he runs his household.
Which of these phrases from the passage most directly indicates a recent influence on Heidi's life? "always stirred a strong emotion within her" "draw her irresistibly to them" "dressed herself as quickly as she could" "she was careful now to be always clean and tidy"
I have D.
because of the word "now"
Yeah i agree with you its D
Which is the most likely reason the author used the word, "fresh," so often in the passage? To build the intensity of the wind and Heidi's reactions to each gust To differentiate Heidi's reactions to the wind from that of her grandfather To imply that the mountain air was invigorating and exciting to Heidi To imply that the mountain air was overwhelming and intense for Heidi
Yes correct C
Okay, last passage.
Getting up too was an equally short process. He jumped out of the box, shook himself, picked out one or two straws that had found their way into rents in his clothes, and, drawing a well-worn cap over his uncombed locks, he was all ready for the business of the day. wingspan's appearance as he stood beside the box was rather peculiar. His pants were torn in several places, and had apparently belonged in the first instance to a boy two sizes larger than himself. He wore a vest, all the buttons of which were gone except two, out of which peeped a shirt which looked as if it had been worn a month. To complete his costume he wore a coat too long for him, dating back, if one might judge from its general appearance, to a remote antiquity. Washing the face and hands is usually considered proper in commencing the day, but Dick was above such refinement. He had no particular dislike to dirt, and did not think it necessary to remove several dark streaks on his face and hands. But in spite of his dirt and rags there was something about Dick that was attractive. It was easy to see that if he had been clean and well dressed he would have been decidedly good-looking. Some of his companions were sly, and their faces inspired distrust; but Dick had a frank, straight-forward manner that made him a favorite.
Based on the information provided in this sentence, what is the best definition of "remote antiquity?" To complete his costume he wore a coat too long for him, dating back, if one might judge from its general appearance, to a remote antiquity. The distant past The far-flung provinces An abandoned mansion An exotic, far-away place
How is wingspan characterized by Alger in this excerpt from the passage? "To complete his costume he wore a coat too long for him, dating back, if one might judge from its general appearance, to a remote antiquity." He is exciting. He is intelligent. He is comical. He is happy.
I think it's B or C.
I believe its C
