1Loewen, James W., Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong (New York: The New Press, 2007 ), 8. And historiography is not just for The Experts. Elsewhere, Loewen compellingly argues that “understanding historiography is one of the great gifts a history course can impart to its students.” See Teaching What Really Happened: How to Avoid the Tyranny of the Textbook and Get Students Excited About Doing History (New York: Teachers College Press, 2009), 211.
2 On Beck and Obama, see Johnston, Robert D., “Long Live Teddy/Death to Woodrow: The Polarized Politics of The Progressive Era in the 2012 Election,” Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era13(July 2014): 411–43. A good portion of Obama's interest in the reformers of a century ago likely came via his counselor, John Podesta, who wrote a fairly learned book about the Progressive Era and its legacy for progressivism today. See Podesta, , The Power of Progress: How America's Progressives Can (Once Again) Save Our Economy, Our Climate, and Our Country (New York: Crown, 2008). Of course, as Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Podesta was one of the chief targets of WikiLeaks; in the process, the Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era actually got swept up in Julian Assange's muckraking net; John Halpin to John Podesta, “The Power of Progress rises again!,” email, Feb. 18, 2015, Wikileaks, https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/20436.

New York Times, Mar. 22, 2016. See also illuminating, Postel's “What We Talk About When We Talk About Populism,” Raritan37 (Fall 2017): 133–55.
