News about Slavery from 1820-1860 in Newspapers of South, North, and West.
Shaw, Donald Lewis
Journalism Quarterly, v61 n3 p483-92 Aut 1984
Analyzes 67 daily and nondaily newspapers from six stratified United States regions: lower South, upper South, border states, middle states, North, and West for years 1820 through 1860 to determine how they covered the topic of slavery. Concludes that all newspapers increased slavery news coverage during that period, with Southern editors most often putting events in a regional context. (FL)
