Description
Where does the news that students hear--on television, the radio, and online--come from? And who decides what's news? Asking Questions about How the News is Created discusses how an event becomes a story, and how the biases of the gatekeepers of the news media can alter the messages being sent. Case studies prompt inquiry, further thinking, and close examination of specific issues. Additional text features and search tools, including a glossary and an index, help students locate information and learn new words.
