JOUR 212 - The Journalist in Fiction and Film


Credits: 4

Since the time of Sophocles, at least, citizens have been tempted to "kill the messenger." Those bearing news are often at odds with the citizens to whom they bring the news. This class explores the tension between citizens and modern-day messengers by reading and viewing fictional depictions of journalists. Students examine the role of popular culture in forming myths, stereotypes and false expectations of journalists - and other groups - to understand better the role of journalists in a free society. Luecke.
