Reading the Newspaper: Strategies and Politics of Reader Response, Chicago, 1912-1917.
Nord, David Paul
Journal of Communication, v45 n3 p66-93 Sum 1995
Examines letters to the editor of two Chicago newspapers between 1912 and 1917, to explore the strategies that readers used to make sense of what they read. Discusses cuing and linking, the new journalistic methodology of objectivity, and the mobilization of bias. Argues that reader response was often not idiosyncratic, but rather guided by organized cultural and political power. (SR)
