News for the '90s: A Question of Values.
Silver, Rosalind, Ed.; Thoman, Elizabeth, Ed.
Media & Values, n50 Spr 1990
This special issue of "Media & Values" gives a perspective on how news is changing, what is missing in the news, and how to spot bias and misinformation in news coverage, both print and electronic. Articles examine the impact of computer imaging on the credibility of photographs and the issue of privacy--just how far should journalists go to get a story? In the vital area of news, what is real is too often shaped by reporters and correspondents who rarely are allowed the luxury of depth. Or, more likely, news is shaped by news executives who value ratings and sales more than the public trust. Articles in this issue include: (1) "Whatever Happened to the News?" (Daniel Hallin); (2) "Satisfying an Age-Old Appetite"; (3) "Balance Bias with Critical Questions" (Pat Hynds); (4)"Project Censored Exposes Media's Untold Stories"; (5) "Left/Right/Center" (Jeff Cohen); (6) "Making the News Pay" (Jeff Greenfield); (7) "Touching Up Reality" (Bennett Daviss); and (8) "The News at Any Cost" (Tom Goldstein).
