This study surveyed American Publishing Company news executives in an attempt to understand what rules and expectations governed their selection of stories for page one. The study occurred at a watershed. Attitudes governing a newspaper's content were shifting from one in which newspaper readers were presented an editor's choice of stories to one in which readers' opinions for page one content were sought more actively.
