Death Makes the News

Jessica M. Fishman

NYU Press

Editors frequently conclude that images of the dead are “not newsworthy.” The decision has become quite routine, begging the question of why images like these are generally not considered newsworthy. What judgments motivate this common conclusion? During individual, confidential interviews, members of the news media reflected on these kinds of questions. Their responses were impressively consistent, typically touching on the same set of themes, which are discussed in this chapter.
