The Competitive Ethos in Television Newswork.
Ehrlich, Matthew C.
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v12 n2 p196-212 Jun 1995
Views competition in terms of a corporate drive for profit and as a way in which television news workers make sense of their jobs and socially construct their world. Argues that through these competitive norms and practices, news workers inadvertently help legitimate the societal status quo and perpetuate corporate control of the media, with potentially destructive consequences.
