Today on the Daily Beat, Monday October 19, 2015: David Altheide says much of the fear around us is unwarranted. It boils down to overuse of the language of fear, and an overeager media and entertainment industry attempting to strike an emotional chord.
Altheide, earned the Charles Horton Cooley Book Award from the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction for his book, “Creating Fear, News and the Construction of a Crisis.” He is the first person to ever win that prestigious national honor twice, with the first coming in 1986 for his book “Media Power.”
