Class and Newsby Don Heider (Editor), Janet Blank-Libra (Contribution by), Bonnie Brennen (Contribution by), Dennis J. Dunleavy (Contribution by), James S. Ettema (Contribution by)
Class and News is a multidisciplinary collection of essays examining how the news media treats or neglects this structure in everyday reporting. Are certain stories are chosen for their appeal to the upper or middle classes? Are stories of interest to lower class readers/viewers avoided? How are issues of social order reported or reflected in stories that aren't about class? This in-depth work will be a valuable resource for students, scholars, and general readers interested in the dynamics of class and news in the United States.
