HEY, BLOOGERS I'M WRITING MY FINAL YEAR THESIS ON CORPORATE CRIME, AND I WOULD PPRECIATE IT IF YOU GUYS WILL HELP ME ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS... THANK YOU

1. What is the public's perception of corporate crime?
2. How do the media decide on the type of crime to report?
3. Are there any similarities/ differences in the way corporate crime and conventional crime is reported?
4. How much corporate crime is reported compared to normal crime?
5. If the media reports conventional crime over corporate crime, is that a reflection of the public's interest in that particular type of crime?
6. How are corporate crime and conventional crime related?
7. People often choose the type of media to which they are exposed. Is bias reflected across the whole spectrum or only reflected in the news?
8. Is there any news bias in the dissemination of corporate crime?
9. What is the media's role in both portraying and informing about crime?
10. To what extent are reporters objective in reporting corporate crime?
11. What is the media’s role in making corporate crime invisible?
12. What do you think would be the social, political and economic implications if corporate crime were to be covered extensively?
13. How do the media decide which corporate crime story to broadcast?
14. Are perpetrators of corporate crime treated differently than other perpetrators of other types of crime?
15. What type of corporate crime have you covered in the past few years/ months
16. Do the media influence the public's perception of crime?
