KAL 007 and the Evil Empire: Mediated Disaster and Forms of Rationalization.
Corcoran, Farrel
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v3 n3 p297-316 Sep 1986
Examines news coverage of the Soviet attack on KAL 007 (Korean Airlines Flight 007) that establishes and legitimizes Russia's viewpoint. Analyzes the twin processes of selection and structuring giving the text coherence. Notes that such cultural analysis challenges scholars to explore how the synchronization of government and media viewpoints occurs in a censorship free society. (JD)
