During his 1912 run for president, Teddy Roosevelt was met with particularly harsh criticism from the special interests, political bosses and machine politics he was actively campaigning against. Newspapers opposed to his progressive reforms were especially vocal and published scathing attacks. Some viewed these attacks as an "unqualified personal abuse of Roosevelt."[1] The footmarked paths show where this scandalous behavior can be traced back to.
