The Key to All Snootologies: Barbie Zelizer's Covering The Body: The Kennedy Assassination, The Med
ia, and the Shaping of Collective Memory.

started re-reading this. WHAT A GREAT AND DANGEROUS BOOK!!. No wonder they had to get Barbie outa the Temple and into Annenberg's Upscale Nag-Sheet at U-Penn. Fast!

Reaffirms the snowballing awareness that the primary disinformation strategy used against the small but necessarily caged """""left""""""""""""""" would be an appeal to their own snootiness.. if you can imagine such a thing.
Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly
A useful scholarly book on the media's efforts to promote themselves as authorities in our collective memory of JFK's assassination.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal
A former reporter for the Reuters News Agency and an assistant professor of rhetoric and communications, Zelizer asks why the news media, trained to present information in narrative form, spend so much time defending their coverage of the assassination of President Kennedy. She suggests that since no journalist in Dallas at the time actually saw the shooting, each one instead strives for acceptance as an authority in the creation of a national collective memory, which is more emotional than the journalistic story. She details this legitimizing process in an interesting and useful scholarly book that is more for media experts than Kennedy assassination groupies.
