Why do crimes and accidents earn more news coverage than development and policy issues affecting thousands of people? Filled with revealing interviews with both journalists and city officials, Making Local News is the first comprehensive look at how the economic motives of media owners, professional motives of journalists, and the strategies of media-wise politicians shape the news we see and hear, thereby influencing urban policy. "Making Local News by Phyllis Kaniss . . . is significant. . . . If we can continue to get smarter about that which journalism leaves out or distorts in its coverage of politics, we may eventually get smarter about politics itself."—Mitchell Stephens, The Philadelphia Inquirer View "A convincing analysis of the factors and forces which color how and why local issues do, or do not, become newsworthy." —Michael H. Ebner, Journal of Interdisciplinary History "This work serves as a reminder of the importance of a medium that is often overlooked until economic realities threaten its very existence." —Choice "Kaniss is truly a pioneer in the study of local news."—Susan Herbst, Contemporary Sociology

Carnage and the Media

A gripping and insightful examination of the relationship between news-makers and news-watchers, looking at how images of war and tragedy are presented to us in the media and how we consume them. Jean Seaton argues that print and television news are central to the way in which we understand and respond emotionally to the world. She shows how we now tolerate without question the increasing levels of violence in news reporting and traces the public representation of suffering from ancient Romans through Communist Russia to all those who avidly watch today's breaking news'.Seaton neither harks back to a lost golden age, nor presumes that more news is necessarily better news. This is a celebration of the media, which, despite all its problems, we must embrace as an essential part of a free society.
