Theus, Kathryn T.
Management Communication Quarterly, v7 n1 p67-94 Aug 1993
Surveys 140 randomly selected profit and nonprofit organizations covered in 7 newspapers, and interviews journalists and organizational respondents. Finds that systematic discrepancies between organizations and reporters on the salience, selection, and interpretation of news reports were more common for public sector mechanistic bureaucracies of large-size than for private organizations having organic structures.
