• Gloria Lee McMillan deposited BOOK REVIEW: Media coverage of Organized Labor in the group Group logo of Rust Belt LiteratureRust Belt Literature on MLA Commons 2 years, 1 month ago

    The idea that the US media is biased against organized labor may seem too obvious to require comment and research, but the details are quite important to understanding to to communicate more effectively between voices of the labor community and voices of management. The common assumption that labor media coverage became more skewed with the recent decline of unions in the US, but William Puette’s _Through Jaundiced Eyes: How the Media view Organized Labor_ shows this is erroneous. He shows how editorial cartoons, for examples, demonized labor from the work of Thomas Nast drawing for _Harper’s Monthly_ onward.
