9780199846412: Reporting for the Media

Now in its tenth edition, Reporting for the Media continues to be an essential resource for journalism instructors. A sweeping introduction to newswriting and reporting, this classic text focuses on the basics of reporting--how to become more curious about the world, generate provocative ideas, gather vital information and write incisive stories.

The authors emphasize such central topics as grammar basics, and common ethical dilemmas. In addition to its excellent pedagogy and coverage of the converged newsroom, the text also explores a variety of advanced topics including broadcast writing, law, ethics and public relations.

Review:


"This is a terrific text, one of the best in the field. It is comprehensive, reliable, and useful. The authors provide a simple, easy-to-understand narrative and an ample supply of thoughtful, relevant exercises." --Joseph Hayden, University of Memphis


"The most satisfying text I ever used in my news reporting course. I've used it for the past year and have recommended it to other instructors who were equally praiseworthy after using it. The book's strengths lie in its straightforward delivery of the basic elements of journalism and the many examples at the ends of chapters, which allow students to put into practice the teachings of the chapter." --Scott Brown, CSU Northridge


"Reporting for the Media teaches the fundamentals of journalism through excellent examples and exercises while including up-to-date information on the issues and challenges facing today's news media." --Deborah Givens, Eastern Kentucky University


"I'm especially impressed with the public affairs reporting examples, including the Dahmer 911 transcript and the statistics chapter." --Berrin Beasley, University of North Florida
