Information Subsidies and Agenda Building: A Study of Local News Radio.
Burns, Joseph E.
New Jersey Journal of Communication, v6 n1 p90-100 Spr 1998
States that a four-week case study of a radio newsroom's source delivered material ("information subsidies") found only 19% of items collected were used to make up part of a newscast. Finds 20% of information subsidies were never "opened." Suggests news directors place more emphasis on source credibility and power perception than information included in the information subsidy.
