Further developing the war novel genre, Ernest Hemingway adds what Smith describes as a “journalistic style” to a more modern skeptical outlook on war....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

Death of the Newspaper: Where Will Journalism Go From Here? - The U.S. newspaper industry is in a time of transition. Ad revenue profits and print readership have been steadily declining for years and things are only continuing to get worse. As readers slowly gravitate towards the internet to fulfill their news needs, more and more newspapers are being forced to close their doors. In spite of this, the spirit of journalism cannot be allowed to die. Media expert Clay Shirky (2009, para. 10) writes that, “There is no general model for newspapers to replace the one the internet just broke.” Shirky’s right, there is no general model because it’s no longer about replacing newspapers; it’s about saving journalism and giving journalists a new media in which...   [tags: Journalism ]

It was about Time(s) - From 1939 until 1945, The New York Times published 1,186 stories pertaining to the atrocities committed against the Jews in Europe. However, only 26 of these made the front page and almost none referred to the Jews as “the primary victims” (Fischel). Since the mid-1940s, many scholars have debated The New York Times’ and other American newspapers’ failure to expose the Holocaust to the American people. Many have come to the conclusion that, although there was a substantial amount of coverage on the Holocaust, The New York Times did not cover it to the full extent and treated the “destruction of the Jews as a second story” (Fischel)....   [tags: U.S. History]
