Focusing on economic and business issues that affect the press and on topics related to the coverage of business and economic news, this booklet begins with two articles by Robert Burdick about understanding opinions of newspaper managing editors and media coverage of the Manville Corporation's bankruptcy petition. The third article, by Mark Mathes, explains how business editors can start their own business barometers, while the fourth article, by Mathes and Robert E. Franken, describes projects involving business enterprises that can make the business section more interesting. The fifth article, by David L. Beal and Michael Grimaldi, discusses analyzing security analysts, and the next two articles, both by David L. Playford, examine the handling of weekend stock tables and changes made in the financial section of the "Atlanta Constitution." The next article, by Joe Fenley, Robert McAleer, and Joe Worley, discusses getting local ideas from national stories. This is followed by a discussion by Thomas Nielson of the business news needs and wants of afternoon newspaper readers. The next two articles, both by Rosalie Carroll, tell how to build a business library and what it costs. Then Robert Pearman tells how editors rate syndicated business columns. The last article contains a critique by Joe Worley and a countercritique by Kent F. Kilpatrick concerning coverage of income tax matters. (EL)
