Ground-breaking in its analysis of the relationship between journalists and sources, Spinning into Control is a useful and colorful introduction to the key issues of contemporary news reporting for students of media/communication and journalism. Fundamental to this relationship is the question of the values that determine which events are selected as "newsworthy" and which are neglected. The book provides a case study-based account of how information flows in news reporting.
