Synopsis

In this study of many mainstream newspapers, Lotz investigates what he calls the "crime fixation" in American media. Although he finds that 30 percent of the front-page stories contain tales of police, courts and criminals, he concludes that crime reporting neither serves the functions nor has the negative effects that are often attributed to it. This highly readable book is of interest to journalists and specialists in crime, politics, public opinion and mass communication.
