Thoughts from a journalist manqué
As a young man Herbert J. Gans, PhB’47, AM’50, wanted to be a journalist. Instead he became a sociologist. In Democracy and the News (Oxford University Press) the author of the classic Deciding What’s News analyzes what the news media can and can’t do in support of American democracy.

Truly foreign news is scarce, probably because much of it has no immediate impact on most Americans. But if journalists learned more about the indirect consequences, international events could be made more meaningful.”
