Description
Of the 1,000 people executed in the US since 1977, and the 3,500 inmates currently awaiting execution, only a handful of cases are represented in the media. Kudlac (criminal justice, Westfield State College) asks why those that receive the ultimate penalty are virtually ignored in the press, despite the fact that the death penalty is one of the country's most controversial, most talked-about issues. He looks at factors that make some executions more newsworthy than others, and discusses the implications of media coverage for the public's understanding of the issue. He chronicles death-row cases that received the most intensive media coverage, from the 1970's through the present, and examines how they affected public opinion about the death penalty.
