Ramsey, Shirley
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v76 n1 p87-98 Spr 1999

Shows conflict and depth in stories to be significantly related to predictor-variable population rank, with depth and breadth significantly related to predictor-variable time (years); and that organizational spokespersons were used more as sources than scientists for 1991 to 1996.
