News in a New Century

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

January 1999 | 342 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

For use as the primary text in public affairs reporting or second-level reporting courses in news or broadcast programs. It may also be used for introductory news writing courses where an emphasis on reporting and writing across the media is desired. The text is an authentic breakthrough in teaching reporting skills to print and broadcast students. It expands traditional news coverage and beats, putting less emphasis on institutions and more on the people affected by them. The authors address important issues of sensitivity in covering an increasingly diverse community. They also integrate law and/or ethics into each chapter rather than relegating them to the end of the book.
