Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for use in a journalism curriculum, explaining the principles and practices of editing news, this edition updated to include on-line media as well as the traditional print and broadcast outlets. Most of the examples of both good and bad editing are still drawn from newspapers, but new chapters explain how to adapt the ideas to the new forms. Also includes information on using graphics and type and on layout and design, and a glossary explaining the peculiar meanings given to some perfectly ordinary words.
