Framing Youth Violence.
McManus, John; Dorfman, Lori
Have quality newspapers incorporated what scholars have learned over the last quarter century about making news more useful as a resource for civic participation? A year-long analysis of reporting about youth violence in three California newspapers provides a schizophrenic conclusion: After the Columbine massacre, newspapers provided rich context, a wide range of sources, and many frames offering causes and solutions. But coverage of the more common violence that most threatens society was typically frameless, minimally contextualized, and police-sourced. (Contains 40 notes and 6 tables of data.) (Author/RS)
