“A compelling read, a thoughtful examination of a brief and dynamic period of change in American newspapers.”—Frederick Blevens, coauthor of Twilight of Press Freedom: The Rise of People’s Journalism
“Michele Weldon argues that newspapers since 2001 have become ‘story papers.’ She tracks the significant changes in front pages, showing how personal stories—stories about everyday people—now dominate Page One. Her book is intimate, it’s readable and it’s convincing. And it may give you hope for the future of newspaper journalism.”
—Peggy Kuhr, Dean, School of Journalism, University of Montana
“Weldon starts with a seemingly narrow, though important, issue about the front page, but she quickly ranges broadly and deeply into the democratization of news and journalism. “Everyman” thoughtfully explores reader-contributed content, changing tone and content of mainstream journalism, narrative writing and even “narrative therapy” and ends up at the frontier of communication between citizen and community.”
—Frank M. Denton, Vice President for Journalism, Morris Communications
