Reveals how the "news" which we perceive as objective, factual, and reliable is, in reality, a highly ritualized narrative in which conventions of writing and reporting influence and even overwhelm the events being recorded

From the Inside Flap:

news for granted: that it will inform us about the significant people and cite the authoritative ones, reflect the world the way it is, and tell us why something happens as it does.

Now, six working journalists, press critics, and scholars at the leading edge of media criticism have been specially commissioned to make the familiar act of reading the news into a fresh and revealing event. Taking the famous "five W's and an H" (Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How), the authors turn these questions back on journalism for the first time to show us exactly what to make of the press.
