Press coverage of civil disorders: A case study of Winston-Salem, 1967
A variety of voluntary codes and guidelines-some devised by the police, some by city administrations, most by the media themselves-now govern the reporting of riots in many American cities. Designed to curb flamboyant or sensational accounts that might exacerbate racial tensions, these guidelines may also have unanticipated and less desirable consequences. The following case study analyzes the implications of one newspaper's coverage of one such disorder. © 1969 by Columbia University Press.
