Reporting the Pacific Northwest
An Annotated Bibliography of Journalism History in Oregon and WashingtonBook - 2004
When print journalism arrived in the Pacific Northwest with the first European settlers, it quickly became a potent force. From the early efforts by entrepreneurial pioneer businessmen to use newspapers as promotional tools to the more balanced reporting of the mid-twentieth century, journalism in the Pacific Northwest has described the citizenry and helped shape its opinions. In this invaluable reference work, Floyd McKay embraces the many facets of journalism history in Oregon and Washington by considering both mainstream media and specialized publications, such as those devoted to Native American, ethnic, and immigrant communities and the feminist and suffrage press. Organized both chronologically and regionally, Reporting the Pacific Northwest provides the first comprehensive annotated bibliography of this subject for general reference use and for the study of journalism history.
