He has also been an assistant editor on a weekly newspaper, an assistant editor on a small daily newspaper, and a general assignment reporter on a large daily newspaper. He is the author of Writing for Mass Communication, Second Edition; Tropic of Cancer on Trial: A Case History of Censorship; and coeditor of Mass Media and the Law: Freedom & Restraint.
