Media Errors and the “Nutty Professor”: Riding the Journalistic Boundaries of the Sandy Hook Shootings

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study explores dual threats to journalism’s authority and professional paradigm during coverage of the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. One threat concerned widespread errors in early reporting. A second threat came shortly after, when a communication professor blogged that the news media had been complicit in a government conspiracy to further the gun control agenda. This study also addresses how social media became part of journalism’s boundary work.
