Crime Coverage

Oxford University Press

Journalism practices in Protector countries are deeply rooted in the once largely homogenous cultures from which they developed and remain a part. Globalization, most intensely focused on crime and immigration and the tell-all reporting style popular on the Internet and social media platforms, threatens the embedded sense of who a people are, how they treat one another, and how they ought to address the challenges of difference. This chapter considers how immigrants have been framed as threat across these nations. The varying responses are examined from news outlets, as well as press councils, about how best to advance these public conversations, which details ought to be included and why. Crimes stories reflect a faith in the government, the courts, and the penal system.
