Description: Why do crimes and accidents earn more news coverage than development and policy issues affecting thousands of people? Filled with revealing interviews with both journalists and city officials, Making Local News is the first comprehensive look at how the economic motives of media owners, professional motives of journalists, and strategies of media-wise politicians shape the news we see and hear, thereby influencing urban policy.

"Making Local News by Phyllis Kaniss . . . is significant. . . . If we can continue to get smarter about that which journalism leaves out or distorts in its coverage of politics, we may eventually get smarter about politics itself". -- Mitchell Stephens, Philadelphia Inquirer View

"A convincing analysis of the factors and forces which color how and why local issues do, or do not, become newsworthy". -- Michael H. Ebner, Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"This work serves as a reminder of the importance of a medium that is often overlooked until economic realities threaten its very existence". -- Choice
