Where does the news that students hear--on television, the radio, and online--come from? And who decides what's news? Asking Questions about How the News is Created discusses how an event becomes a story, and how the biases of the gatekeepers of the news media can alter the messages being sent. Case studies prompt inquiry, further thinking, and close examination of specific issues. Additional text features and search tools, including a glossary and an index, help students locate information and learn new words.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This title in the Asking Questions about Media series focuses on four areas in news reporting: how headlines are chosen, how news companies grab readers' attention, how and why readers interpret news differently, and bias in news reporting. Within each topic, the author introduces concepts, such as the use of charismatic broadcasters to deliver television news, and promotes reflection by asking such questions as why some news stories are placed more prominently in newspapers and on news websites. Fact boxes and glossy color photos supplement the text, while case studies consider trends and debates in news reporting. In this well-rounded resource, children don't just learn about different types of news media and their impact on audiences; they also see how to be critical consumers of news themselves.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2015 Booklist"
