The news people : a sociological portrait of American journalists and their work by John Wallace Claire Johnstone( Book )

13 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sociological study described in this volume, based on extensive interviews with more than 1300 practicing journalists, is one of the first large-scale national inquiries dealing with an occupational group. Interview statistics are used to paint a portrait of the people who make their living as full-time disseminators of news: those who work for radio and television, wire services and syndicates, news magazines, daily and weekly newspapers, and some of the journalists in the alternative media. Information is included on social characteristics, education and training, career patterns, job functions, political affiliations, professional status, and the behavior of both print and broadcast journalists. Results indicate that, generally, newspeople tend to be young, male, and from middle-class or upper-middle-class social backgrounds. The rising consciousness of minority groups, the salary differences between men and women in the media, and the influence of "underground" publications on mainstream media are also discussed. Statistical information is presented in an appendix. (Author/KS)

An approach to sociology, based upon nested theory. It explains sociology through processes of global and local change, showing how social change occurs in larger global or national structures and influences events that happen in students' immediate personal and social environments. At the same time, it emphasizes that social change is a two-way street - that we can influence the world in addition to being affected by it. Racial, ethnic and gender differences are themes that are woven into every chapter of the book, showing how they affect stratification and inequality, and the workings of particular social institutions and processes
