Chapter Seven-

“Deep changes in society are often as important for the reactions they provoke as for the direct effect they produce.”[Page, 233, Paragraph 1, Line 1]

During the 1900s the population was increasing, many immigrants from southern and eastern Europe. Because of the massive migration of new immigrants new societies began to form. This also started conflict between African Americans and northern whites; there was also a conflict between foreign and Native Americans. The immigrants and blacks in society brought about new culture that had to be accommodated by media. Newspapers had to change their format of information to appeal to new citizens of America. Editors, writers, etc had to reform their own moral behavior to write in a non-racist manor to appeal to new audience.
