Newspaper Coverage of Causes of Death.
Combs, Barbara; Slovic, Paul
Journalism Quarterly, v56 n4 p837-43,849 Win 1979
Content analyses of a Massachusetts and an Oregon daily newspaper revealed that the newspapers covered causes of death in very similar ways, overreporting violent, often catastrophic causes of death and underreporting diseases. These biases in coverage corresponded closely to people's judgments of causes of death, as determined in a previous study. (GT)
