Synopsis: We take our news for granted: that it will inform us about the significant people and cite the authoritative ones, reflect the world the way it is, and tell us why something happens as it does.

Now, six working journalists, press critics, and scholars at the leading edge of media criticism have been specially commissioned to make the familiar act of reading the news into a fresh and revealing event. Taking the famous "five W's and an H" (Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How), the authors turn these questions back on journalism for the first time to show us exactly what to make of the press.

Why And How? The Dark Continent of American Journalism

Robert Karl Manoff

Writing the News (By Telling the "Story")

For everyone who reads the newspaper, for the journalist, and for the media critic alike, these essays offer fresh, provocative insights into a centerpiece of American culture, the news.

From Library Journal: These essays in the philosophy and sociology of journalism take the trusty five w and h's of journalism and attempt to show, one at a time, that they are not worthy of the too-easy trust journalists and readers put in them. The news is: 1) too dominated by whos, 2) too uncritical of whats, 3) too rushed by whens, 4) not concerned enough with wheres, and 5) superficial and overly conventional about whys and hows. The discussions by six journalists, press critics, and scholars are provocative and inventivealthough their standards seem more academic than journalistic. Still, this well-organized book is a natural for any thoughtful journalism curriculum, and it certainly succeeds in prodding all of us to begin reading more wisely.
