Summary
This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and a research component. The professional work component details the author's experiences working at the Detroit Free Press as a general assignment reporter in the entertainment department. Includes field notes and examples of work. In 1990 Detroit suffered two blows to its image. One was a book called "Devil's night: and other true tales of Detroit" and the other a story on "Prime Time Live." In the research component the author looks at how the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News reported on these two looks at Detroit and how they suffered criticism for their coverage. This "national attention on Detroit ... seemed to have excerbated [sic] the normal tension between newspaper and community. It also spotlighted some key questions about journalism: How much do newspapers really contribute to a city's image? How do local newspapers react when national journalists criticise [sic] their city? How much should newspapers respond to pressure from community activists? ... Do newspapers have an ethical obligation to help improve the image for the sake of the city?" (research component, p. 4) The author kept these questions in mind while conducting her research
