Selections from CQ Researcher

Can News Outlets Regain the Public’s Confidence? Can Governments Control the Press in the Internet Age? Should Americans Have a Right “To Be Forgotten”?

Written by award-winning CQ Researcher journalists, this collection of non-partisan reports focuses on 12 hot-button issues facing journalists and news organizations. With reports ranging from perceptions of media bias and threats to free speech, Issues in News and Reporting promotes in-depth discussion, facilitates further research, and helps readers formulate their own positions on crucial issues. And because it’s CQ Researcher, the reports are expertly researched and written, presenting readers with all sides of an issue.

Key Features:

  • Chapters follow a consistent organization, beginning with a summary of the issue, then exploring a number of key questions around the issue, next offering background to put the issue into current context, and concluding with a look ahead.
  • A pro/con debate box in every chapter offer readers the opportunity to critically analyze and discuss the issues by exploring a debate between two experts in the field.
  • All issues include a chronology, a bibliography, photos, charts, and figures to offer readers a more complete picture of the issue at hand.
