“A classic text of journalism education that goes beyond the basics to ask the questions that anyone thinking of becoming a journalist really needs to consider. An ethical, entertaining and enduring read - highly recommended.”
“A holistic assessment of what journalism is all about, with plenty of enterprising interpretations of our trade - a word I prefer to 'profession'. I never met a more 'unprofessional' breed than that of my fellow hacks. This book will, I hope, lead our successors both to question and rebel more than we have.”
"Journalism still matters. How it’s done, why it’s done, by whom and for whom remain at the heart of this updated edition. Harcup draws on a rich diversity of voices to cast a critical, yet practical eye on journalism now, providing an indispensable resource for all who are interested in news."
