News Reporting and the Ideological Presumption.
Kieran, Matthew
Journal of Communication, v47 n2 p79-96 Spr 1997
Investigates the ideological presumption concerning media analysis (the claim that what really matters is the underlying sociopolitical relations of control and power). Explicates and critically assesses arguments provided by the writings of John Fiske and Michel Foucault, concluding that there is no good reason to believe that the news media are essentially ideological.
