A Guard Dog Perspective on the Role of Media.
Donohue, George A.; And Others
Journal of Communication, v45 n2 p115-32 Spr 1995
Offers a "guard dog" metaphor for the functioning of the mass media, suggesting that media perform as a sentry for groups having sufficient power and influence to create and control their own security systems. Delineates this perspective from others, and suggests several hypotheses that may be derived for testing the utility of the guard dog perspective. (SR)
