A woman of the Times : journalism, feminism, and the career of Charlotte Curtis by Marilyn S Greenwald( Book )

"For twenty-five years, Charlotte Curtis was a society women's reporter and editor and an op-ed editor at the New York Times. As the first woman associate editor at the Times, Curtis was a pioneering journalist and one of the first nationwide to change the nature and content of the women's pages from fluffy wedding announcements, and recipes to the more newsy, issue-oriented stories that characterize them today."
The big chill : investigative reporting in the current media environment ( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 415 libraries worldwide
"Investigative reporting has long been a key element of news gathering in the United States. Its goals remain the same: to expose wrongdoing and to bring about positive changes in existing laws and regulations. Yet sweeping changes in American society and media are exerting their influence on the nature of investigative reporting." "Mergers and consolidations have placed media outlets under ever-larger corporate umbrellas. Cable television has made news reporting more immediate. Computer technology has enhanced reporters' ability to collect data; at the same time it has allowed for the rapid dissemination of inaccurate information by inexperienced and uncredentialed people. These changes are prompting a rethinking of traditional methods of investigative reporting." "The scholars and journalists who have contributed to The Big Chill examine these recent developments."--Jacket
The secret of the Hardy boys : Leslie McFarlane and the Stratemeyer Syndicate by Marilyn S Greenwald( Book )
14 editions published in 2004 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 410 libraries worldwide
"The author of the Hardy Boys mysteries was, as millions of readers know, Franklin W. Dixon. Except that there never was a Franklin W. Dixon. He was the creation of Edward Stratemeyer, the founder of a children's book empire that also published the Tom Swift, Bobbsey Twins, and Nancy Drew series. The Secret of the Hardy Boys: Leslie McFarlane and the Stratemeyer Syndicate recounts how a newspaper reporter with dreams of becoming a serious novelist first brought to life Joe and Frank Hardy, who became two of the most famous characters in children's literature." "Leslie McFarlane, better known as Franklin W. Dixon, wrote twenty of the first twenty-four Hardy Boys mysteries for about $100 per book. He relished the anonymity demanded by the Stratemeyer Syndicate, admitting his authorship of the books to no one, not even his children - his son pried the truth out of him years later. He wrote about the exploits of the Hardy Brats, as he called them, from 1927 to 1947, work that put food on the McFarlane table and allowed him the independence of a professional writer." "A best-selling author, McFarlane never made a penny more from the Hardy Boys series than the flat fee he was paid for each book. Having signed away all rights to the books, McFarlane never shared in the wild financial success of the series." "This book is a story of talent and character as well as of the Stratemeyer Syndicate and the growth and development of children's literature in North America."--Jacket
Pauline Frederick reporting : a pioneering broadcaster covers the Cold War by Marilyn S Greenwald( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 158 libraries worldwide
"Pauline Frederick Reporting is the biography of the life and career of the first woman to become a network news correspondent. After no less an authority than Edward R. Murrow told her there was no place for her in broadcasting, Pauline Frederick (1908-90) cracked the good old boys' club through determination and years of hard work, eventually becoming a trusted voice to millions of television viewers. During Frederick's nearly fifty years as a journalist she interviewed a young Fidel Castro, covered the Nuremberg trials, interpreted diplomatic actions at the United Nations, and was the first woman to moderate a presidential debate. The life of this pivotal figure in American journalism provides an inside perspective on the growth and political maneuverings of television networks as well as Frederick's relationships with iconic NBC broadcast figures David Brinkley, Chet Huntley, and others. Although Frederick repeatedly insisted that she would trade her career, glamorous as it was, to have a family, a series of romances ended in heartache when she did indeed choose her work over love. At the age of sixty-one, however she married and attained the family life she had always wanted. Her story is one for all modern women striving to balance career and family."--Jacket

Gender Representation in Newspaper Business Sections by Marilyn S Greenwald( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
To examine the representation of women in newspaper business sections, a study conducted content analyses of 30 business section front pages in "The Columbus Dispatch" in Ohio (weekly circulation about 260,000 and Sunday circulation 350,000) and "The (Louisville) Courier-Journal" in Kentucky (weekly circulation about 233,000 and Sunday circulation 325,000) from June 23, 1987 to July 22, 1987. Each page was coded for: number of stories and photos; number of stories about women (with a woman or women's issue as the main topic); stories quoting women as expert sources or spokespersons; stories with a female byline; and number of photos picturing at least one woman (not including "mug shots" of columnists that often accompany columns). Stories were also coded for the same characteristics as they applied to males. Analysis revealed that of 180 stories coded in "The Dispatch," women were the main subject of one story and four "Business Briefs," were quoted in 11 stories and one brief, had 10 bylines, and were featured in nine photos. In contrast, men were the main subject of 31 stories and 10 briefs, were quoted in 89 stories and eight briefs, had 35 bylines, and were depicted in 35 photos. Of the 116 stories coded in "The Courier-Journal," women were the subject of six stories and four briefs, were quoted in six stories and one brief, had 35 bylines, and shown in six photos. Men were the subject of 29 stories and 22 briefs, were quoted in 59 stories and 12 briefs, had 42 bylines, and depicted in 25 photos. (A summary of the coded stories is appended.) (Mm)

The Portrayal of Women in Newspapers: A Meta-Analysis by Marilyn S Greenwald( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
To investigate the role and portrayal of women in newspapers and to determine trends emerging from this portrayal, a study examined 15 published quantitative research studies (content analyses) on the portrayal of women in newspapers, dating from 1973 until 1988. Studies were gathered primarily from "Communication Abstracts," the Educational Resources Information Center (eric), "Journalism Monographs," several dissertation and thesis indices, and previous studies. Data gathered included year of publication, size and nature of the sample, qualitative descriptions of the portrayal, and any other pertinent factors that offered a glimpse of how women are portrayed in newspapers' news pages. Analysis indicated that in general, the studies showed a consistent pattern of unequal treatment of women in the news pages. The treatment of women improved only slightly (or not at all) from the time of the 1973 study until recently, despite the entrance of more women into the work force and increasing media coverage given to women's rights. (Thirty footnotes are included, and one table of data and 21 references are attached.) (Mm)
Senior Newspaper Editors and Daily Newspaper Coverage of the Gay and Lesbian Community: A Summary of Past Findings and Discussion of New Findings on Reporting Sexual Orientation by Joseph P Bernt( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Building on an earlier study, this paper presents the findings of a series of studies that asked senior newspaper editors throughout the United States how they view newspaper coverage of issues of concern to gays and lesbians. The paper presents detailed findings reported in four earlier papers analyzing data from the survey: "Daily Newspaper Coverage of the Gay and Lesbian Community: Perceptual Differences of Senior Editors and Their Gay and Lesbian Staffers"; "Privacy and the aids Crisis: Newspaper Practices Regarding Obituaries and Outings"; "Tolerance of Senior Daily Newspaper Editors for Photographs of People with aids and Gays and Lesbians"; and "Newspaper Coverage of Gays and Lesbians: Editors' Views of Its Longterm Effects." The paper presents a new study regarding senior editors' views about indicating sexual orientation in news columns. The paper discusses how the results from these studies might be used in generating more accurate and comprehensive coverage of events and concerns of the lesbian and gay community. The paper concludes with an outline of tentative plans for a study of daily newspaper coverage of gay and lesbian communities and of gay and lesbian and "mainstream" readership of those dailies in 23 U.S. and Canadian cities.
