Product Description

Scooped! surveys the impact of tabloid journalism in America and reveals that crime news and reporting say much about a society fascinated by sleaze and violence. David Krajicek raises important questions about how and why certain crimes are reported, and the ways in which these representations are framing debates concerning crime policy and the criminal justice system. He challenges journalists--in the tabloid, television, and otherwise "respectable" news media--to fulfill their mission to inform, and not inflame, the public.

The book is a much-praised critical analysis of the manner in which the media and politicians trivialized important decisions about criminal justice policy by basing them upon expediency and aberrational crime anecdotes. In the years after Krajicek wrote "Scooped," his criticisms were validated as the costs of criminal justice skyrocketed in American, driven by the expedient political decisions he cites in the book.
