Book Summary:

Good writing is at the heart of journalism. Journalists write for a living. They use words precisely and efficiently. They present accurate, verified information in a way that a mass audience will understand it by reading or hearing it only once. Such writing takes skill, discipline and practice. Writing Like a Journalist will give the reader some of the basic concepts of how journalists achieve good writing -- writing that an audience can understand and will pay for. Chapters topics in this volume include: - The discipline of good writing - Mastering the language - Tools of writing: Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling - Why journalistic writing is different - The inverted pyramid structure - Headlines - Writing for audio and visual journalism The book also contains a bonus chapter on the First Amendment with sections on each of the five freedoms protected by the amendment and a section on the history and development of the amendment. The many multimedia and interactive elements in this book include writing tips by Roy Peter Clark, video comments by First Amendment historian Dwight Teeter, and review quizzes in many of the chapters.

Book Summary:

Using examples and exercises, The Process of Writing News takes an “impact, elements, and words” approach to demystify reporting and writing for beginners. This is a concise book that approaches writing as a process, using a pedagogy that has proven effective. In each chapter, the book addresses the roles of journalists at several levels of abstraction, beginning with their responsibilities to audiences in a democratic society, and continuing with ethical decision-making in fulfilling those responsibilities. Each chapter ends with reporting and writing exercises which allow the reader to develop skills for informing audiences and telling compelling stories in print, broadcast, and online news media and to practice and be evaluated on those skills. The reader is taken through a year in the life of a fictional community, revisiting issues and stories in a series of more than two dozen linked exercises of increasing complexity, from lede writing to handling a major breaking story on deadline. There are even opportunities to report and write from the reader's own community.

Book Summary:

"Like It Was Yesterday" is a compilation of unpublished and re-edited published material about the effects of 9/11 on American society since the terrorist attacks took place in New York City, Washington, DC and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. This book is a reminder for those of us who were adults in 2001; and for everyone else, it's a real-life account of how America's freedom was eroded throughout the ensuing 14 years. Every year that passes we must realize the importance of teaching those who don't or can't remember to REMEMBER 9/11. People born right before, during and after 9-11-2001 were robbed of the freedom we used to take for granted. It was hard-fought for by our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers, but by the time we reached the 21st Century, we believed we had evolved above brutal war and senseless killing. On 9/11, we found out that we were indeed still vulnerable, and it changed us.

Book Summary:

The present book has been brought into being in view of incessant demand pertaining to the subject Journalism, inherently requires that stories be told in-depth. Many newspapers have cut out long articles even before the Internet. They have followed the example set by television news. They have been hit by the rising price of newsprint, and the renewed emphasis on cost cutting. They are convinced that readers are pressed for time, impatient with detail, and conditioned to ingest the news in pellet-like form. The bulk of broadcast news is reporting in the sense that is used is different rather than journalism. It is epitomized by the two-minute wire service radio bulletin on the hour already a fast disappearing format. In this incisive and well-presented work, the book has synthesized the findings to lay down principles of sound journalism for both those in the industry and the citizens, who rely on the free press as a fundamental element of democracy. First and foremost among these principles is journalism's obligation to the truth. It will immensely benefit students, teachers, mass communicators, theoreticians and practitioners alike. Something usable today, a ready reckoner for years to come and a collector's item for all times. A must read endurable and preservable

Book Summary:

Investigative journalism emerged in China in the 1980s following Deng Xiaoping’s media reforms. Over the past few decades, Chinese investigative journalists have produced an increasing number of reports in print or on air and covered a surprisingly wide range of topics which had been thought impossible by the standards of the Communist era. In the 2010s, however, investigative journalism has been replaced by activist journalism. This book examines how, with the aid of new media technologies and in response to new calls for social responsibility, these new-era journalists vigorously seek to expand the scope of their journalism and their capacity as journalists. They tend to perceive themselves as more than professional journalists, and their activities are not limited to the physical boundaries of newsrooms. They are not only detached observers of society but also engaged organizers of social movements—they are social activists as well as responsible journalists who challenge state power and the party line and point to the limitations of the more traditional conceptions of journalism in China. This book analyzes how journalism in China has been gradually transformed from a tool of the state to a means of broadening calls for democratic reform.
