Covering the Body


Product Description
Product Details


A former reporter for the Reuters News Agency and an assistant professor of rhetoric and communications, Zelizer asks why the news media, trained to present information in narrative form, spend so much time defending their coverage of the assassination of President Kennedy. She suggests that since no journalist in Dallas at the time actually saw the shooting, each one instead strives for acceptance as an authority in the creation of a national collective memory, which is more emotional than the journalistic story. She details this legitimizing process in an interesting and useful scholarly book that is more for media experts than Kennedy assassination groupies.-- Abraham Z. Bass, Northern Illinois Univ., DeKalb
