Not biting the hand that feeds them: Hegemonic expediency in the newsroom and the Karen ryan/health and human services department video news release

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 23 (2):110 – 125 (2008)
This study examines the use of a video news release in a specific story. Press coverage and editorial criticism in the case showed that journalists do not articulate sufficiently how the news owners' sway, through institutional controls, can lead to a hegemony of expedient action in the newsroom. Critical self-reflection by news workers will better enable journalists to ethically deliberate news choices that balance their responsibilities to owners, peers, and the public.
