Gans’s Basic Journalistic Values  (pp. 46 – 48 in Mass Communication)

 

Pick up a copy of a major newspaper (USA Today, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, or the Boston Globe) and look at the front page. Mark each example of Gans’s basic journalistic values that you can identify. Then, in a brief essay, do the following:

 

- Give the name and date of your paper.

- List every story by headline on the front page.

- List the basic journalistic values from Gans for each story, and provide examples of how you see them. Not all stories will fit perfectly but review them and give your best argument for why you think it fits in one category versus another. Be specific.

HINT: You should have something to say about each story on your front page.

 

- Then, explain which values you found and the evidence for them. Did you see any other values that you would want to add to the list? What were they?
