Shifting Narratives: How Journalism’s Coverage of Mass Shootings Has Evolved – Elizabeth A. Skewes, CU Journalism Department Chair

 

Please join us as CU’s Chair of the Journalism Department shares preliminary findings from her new research on media coverage of mass shootings and school shootings from the 1966 shooting at the University of Texas in Austin to the shooting last year at the Table Mesa King Soopers in our own community.

Elizabeth Skewes will discuss how coverage has changed since the mid-1960s and how journalists try to balance the duty to inform the public with the need to treat victims and survivors with an ethic of care.
