Summary

For ten years, Gans spent considerable time in four major television and magazine newsrooms, observing and talking to the journalists who choose most of the news stories that inform America about itself. He was interested in their values, professional standards, and the external pressures that shaped their judgments. This fascinating study of the unwritten rules of American journalism provides rare insight into how our society words and how our perceptions of it are formed.
