Using a South Australian example, and based on interviews with journalists and their sources, this paper examines how the media and their sources negotiate the reporting of fear in a community. It sketches the process by which a particular story was created, the features that were highlighted, and considers the part that different organisations play in shaping the construction of news about crime.
