Bias in Balanced Media - Bias in Balanced Media In traditional American media, we as viewers have given mass media expectations to meet in order to meet our demands.

But, looking back through the ages, there are many examples of what is now called literary journalism, or blurring the line between fact and fiction. What has changed " . . . is not the practice of literary journalism but expectations about truth" ("In"). In Postmodern American Fiction, the editors make the point that Truman Capote's " In Cold Blood (1965) illustrates how the postmodern inclination to blur the boundary between standard journalism and fiction could itself create a new layer of narrative tension within the bounds of the tradition novel"(125)....   [tags: In Cold Blood Essays] 579 words

Sensationalism counts for only one of the numerous ties between the career rivals who, in an effort to distinguish themselves from each other, ironically knotted themselves together in journalism history....   [tags: Journalism]

Walt Whitman celebrates the freedom he sees as inherent in America through his verse. The work of both, however, can be seen to have been captive to political considerations of the period.

The Origins Of The Literary Western: Dime Novels And The Virginian By O.Wister - The concept of the Wild West lies at the core of the American ideology â€" the republican ideology of an independent state ruled by Law. The conflict between Law and Justice is always at the centre of a western. The reason is not hard to find: the wild frontier lands which used to belong to the native American population was an easy prey for all kinds of adventurers, outlaws and gangsters; ordinary settlers, in their turn, had to suffer from both Indians and rustlers.
