This book discusses the public opinion process with a focus on the role that the news media play in shaping public opinion.

"The Global Journalist in the 21st Century systematically assesses the demographics, education, socialization, professional attitudes and working conditions of journalists in various countries around the world. This book updates the original Global Journalist (1998) volume with new data, adding more than a dozen countries, and provides material on comparative research about journalists that will be useful to those interested in doing their own studies. The editors put together this collection working under the assumption that journalists' backgrounds, working conditions and ideas are related to what is reported (and how it is covered) in the various news media round the world, in spite of societal and organizational constraints, and that this news coverage matters in terms of world public opinion and policies. Outstanding features include: Coverage of 33 nations located around the globe, based on recent surveys conducted among representative samples of local journalists ; Comprehensive analyses by well-known media scholars from each country ; A section on comparative studies of journalists ; An appendix with a collection of survey questions used in various nations to question journalists. As the most comprehensive and reliable source on journalists around the world, The Global Journalist will serve as the primary source for evaluating the state of journalism. As such, it promises to become a standard reference among journalism, media, and communication students and researchers around the world."--Publisher's website

The American journalist in the 1990's : an advance report of key findings from a 1992 naational survey of U.S. journalists by David H Weaver( Book )
3 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Following up on similar studies done in 1971 and 1982-83, a study surveyed American journalists in 1992 to develop a statistical profile of the "typical" journalist and to see how today's journalists compare with those of 10 or 20 years ago. Telephone interviews were conducted during the summer of 1992 with 1410 journalists. Subjects in the main probability sample of 1156 were chosen randomly from news organizations also selected randomly; response rate was 81%. Overall finding (using preliminary data) was that, although the past decade has seen great changes in journalism and the larger society, and although there has been some change and progress among American journalists, it has also been a period of little growth in overall numbers and limited change in the representation of women and minorities in journalism. The "typical" American journalist in 1992 is a white Protestant male with a bachelor's degree from a public college, is 36 years old and married, earns $31,000 a year, has 12 years experience, does not belong to a journalism association, and works for a medium-sized group-owned daily newspaper. Although there are substantial numbers of women, non-Whites, and non-Protestants working for a wide variety of small and large news media, stalled growth in media employment appears to have affected the representation of women. A bachelor's degree has become the minimum qualification necessary for practicing journalism, although only at daily newspapers is the journalism degree becoming the norm.
