News Framing of School Shootings : Journalism and American Social Problems, Hardback Book

News Framing of School Shootings : Journalism and American Social Problems Hardback



News discourse helps us understand society and how we respond to traumatic events.

News Framing of School Shootings: Journalism and American Social Problems provides insights into how we come to understand broad societal issues like gun control, the influence of violent media on children, the role of parents, and the struggles of teenagers dealing with bullying.

This book evaluates the news framing of eleven school shootings in the United States between 1996 and 2012, including the traumatic Columbine and Sandy Hook events.

Michael McCluskey explores reasons behind news coverage patterns, including differences in medium, news audience political ideology, the influence of political actors and other sources, and the contextual elements of each shooting.
