The Holy Cow! Story. How the News Media Cover College Costs.
Footlick, Jerrold K.
Presidency, v1 n1 p28-33 Spr 1998
Americans understand little about college costs, in part because mass media report the issue inadequately. If colleges want their stories told better, they must be more open with information, even answering uncomfortable questions or explaining embarrassing facts. If journalists see that institutions are making efforts to control costs and relieve financial pressures on students, they will report this. (MSE)
