GATHERING THE NEWS

In preparing new stories, the mass media rely on:

Official news sources: Representatives of dominant institutions used by  media to define basic meaning of issue or event (e.g., politicians,  police officers, professionals, experts)

Ordinary news sources: Sources without a group affiliation (e.g., victims or eye witnesses)

Alternative news sources: Representatives of social movements and social advocacy/activism groups, whose viewpoints often diverge from those of dominant social groups*
