Kaitlin’s research focuses on three interlocking areas: journalism ethics, media ownership, and harassment of journalists. Broadly, she is interested in understanding how journalists make choices (e.g. ethical choices, news content choices) as a result of a hierarchy of influences (Shoemaker & Reese, 2013). Specifically, Kaitlin’s work explores the ways in which outsider initiated harassment affects the journalism industry in general, and journalists in particular.
