Choice Processes in a Newspaper Ethics Case.
Borden, Sandra L.
Communication Monographs, v64 n1 p65-81 Mar 1997
Examines choice processes of Midwestern newspaper staffers who participated in the professionally questionable decision to "kill" a photograph of a fatal wreck scene at the request of the victim's family. Shows how organizational routines, professional norms, and other factors entered into the decision through small-group communication and how these factors then prescribed decision makers' argumentation and negotiation patterns.
