Let’s think about the cycle of information. When an event first happens or an issue is recent, it is
typically covered by news stations via the Internet, TV, and radio. The next day, and perhaps throughout that week, it will appear in print newspapers. At the end of the week or month, if the event or issue
is significant enough, it may be included in popular news magazines. Over the next several months and years, if research or scholarship is done about
the event or issue, it will be included in academic journal articles. Beyond that, when enough information has been collected about the event
or issue, there may be a book published about it.
