The newsgathering process is not something that is widely examined by scholars, though Verica Rupar (2006) makes a good case for further study in her project on newsgathering and transparency in the New Zealand press. One of Rupar’s arguments is that when journalists are quoting information, they do not specifically say where they got that information. For example, she notes the difference between saying, ‘the Prime Minister said yesterday at a press conference in the Beehive that …’, versus ‘The Prime Minister thinks …’.

A crime story will always have a quote from a police official, a story about budget woes will always contain a quote from an elected official, and a story about higher education will always contain a quote from a qualified academic. Ericson et al. (1989) explain further: There is considerable variation in who controls the process, depending on the context, the type of sources involved, the type of news organizations involved, and what is at issue. It is a matter of who wants to control whom via news accounts and how all the sources and news organizations involved see themselves fitting into the picture.
