This first chapter summarizes how this book overturns conventional thinking about photojournalism, and the construction of the news more generally. Each subsequent chapter is briefly described, highlighting the unexpected findings. As described in this chapter, the first half of the book examines the news industry’s compulsion to self-censor certain images, and the second half examines exceptions.
