This UNI professor tackles the mainstream media’s coverage of the working class in his new book. Here, he answers five essential questions.

Chris Martin has always been a news junkie. He grew up obsessively reading every newspaper and magazine he could get his hands on. That lifelong passion — and a critical eye Martin developed for how certain subjects are covered — has served him well as a professor in UNI’s communication studies department, where he regularly teaches classes on journalism and the media.
