Abstract

In mid-December 2010, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart asked Congress to address the health care needs of 9/11 rescue workers—which it did. Shortly after, the New York Times published an analysis piece comparing Stewart to the legendary broadcaster Edward R. Murrow. This article explores how collective memory of Murrow was used by both mainstream media and the blogosphere to negotiate membership boundaries of journalism itself, with analysis conducted through textual analysis of online mainstream news texts and blog postings.
