Pursuing Order: Ten Years of Editorial Coverage of the Abortion Issue in <em>The Globe and Mail</em>
AbstractA chief function of elite newspapers is the reproduction of order. Ten years (1977-86) of Toronto Globe and Mail editorials about abortion were studied. A total of 40 were found with 30 of these appearing in the last three years of the decade. The editorials demonstrate that the mainstream media dislike those perceived as ideologues, call for moderation, and give preferred coverage to professionals, while virtually ignoring discussion of the ethics of abortion. The editorials cite men eight times as often as women.
