Goshorn, Kent; Gandy, Oscar H., Jr.
Journal of Communication, v45 n2 p133-51 Spr 1995
Examines the presentation of racially comparative risk by 49 leading daily newspapers, revealing a tendency to frame stories of difference in terms of black loss. Suggests that the greater the presence of blacks in the market, the more likely the newspapers were to use a lead emphasizing the high probability of black failure. (SR)
