History of US Pop Culture Tabloids: o Anti-intellectual o Tabloids lead to the “new elite” – Celebrities o What you see is the manifestation of the popular will; they capture the interest of Americans. New technological Era o Pictures can now be transmitted through wires o “Fax Machines” Mukraking Journalism- Going into the “dirty reality” to find out what’s going on with the more difficult parts of society (such as the living conditions of the homeless) and informing the public about these issues that they are unaware of. o Done for the effect of creating a public outrage, with the hopes that something will start being done about fixing it. o Jacob Riis “How the Other Half Lives” Specialized in scenes of poverty, crime, and child neglect in New York City. o Nelly Bly Went undercover for the New York World as a patient in an insane asylum, and reported on mistreatment of the inmates there. Jazz o Defines itself by improvisation. o Less unbounded in tonality than other music at the time. (More free version of music) o Movement-oriented o Improvisatory-rarely each performance would be the same. Reaction to Jazz o There was no ‘main” start to jazz o It came from multiple sources at one time, so it wasn’t exactly a huge shock, and nobody was “taken by surprise”. o Jazz was crowned as the first “American music art-form” o Jazz was widely accepted by both the white and black audiences.
