ABSTRACT. Aust remarks that bad news often deals with unpleasant, unfortunate, conflict-laden, and otherwise aversive events, circumstances, and conditions. Hughes-Freeland focuses on mass-media based on technology, in particular the products of broadcast and print technologies, and revisits the interface between ritual and media previously explored in relation to performance. Altheide argues that social life consists of a process of communication and interpretation regarding the definition of the situation.
