Toward a Theory of Press-State Relations in the United States.
Bennett, W. Lance
Journal of Communication, v40 n2 p103-25 Spr 1990
Hypothesizes that mass media news is "indexed" implicitly to the dynamics of governmental debate. Tests the hypothesis by analyzing four years of "New York Times" coverage of United States' funding of the Nicaraguan contras. Finds that the opinions voiced in the news stories came overwhelmingly from government officials. (RS)
