News in a New Century
Reporting in An Age of Converging Media


Other Titles in:
Journalism

March 1999 | 342 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This comprehensive book provides a wealth of exercises and assignments for teaching students reporting skills, combining successful, tried and tested techniques with an awareness of new realities and technologies in broadcast and print. The authors take the student through a writing process initiated by ideas rather than concepts of correct writing, covering: writing in different media, including the Internet; news beats; sensitivity and the diverse national community; law and ethics; and new research skills, including databases and computer-assisted reporting.
