Media Crime Coverage in the United States 2008

October 21, 2009 04:51:51 pm

In 2008, there was no dominant event in crime and justice for the news media to cover, according to a report prepared by Criminal Justice Journalists on Media Crime Coverage in the United States.

Due to the lack of a sensational case, such as O.J. Simpson or Laci Petersen, blanketing news coverage, the study explores some of the major crime and justice issues that made the news in 2008 and assess how well or poorly the news media covered them.
