Death Makes the News

Jessica M. Fishman

NYU Press

This chapter identifies the different types of images that the news media use to suggest, but not directly document, the dead. These images capture visual euphemisms and provide sanitized metaphors. Meanwhile, many other images refuse to even hint at death. These images visually refute the unfortunate fate that has been otherwise deemed very newsworthy.

Keywords:   document, dead, visual, euphemisms, sanitized, metaphors, newsworthy, images
