Toward a Troubleshooting Manual for Journalism History.
Schudson, Michael
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v74 n3 p463-76 Aut 1997
Describes five common mistakes of journalism historians: assuming that the media are always central to a historical event; assuming that commercial forces always have a corrupting influence on journalism; reducing complex events to technological or economic explanations; accepting that journalism is constantly declining; and assuming that news media came into existence because they served a popular need.
