Overview

This is the indispensable guide to the theory and practice of journalism.

New and improved features include:

thorough updates with 25 per cent more material

a new chapter on telling stories through pictures, whether on TV or online

fresh examples reflecting today's multimedia journalistic practice

more insights from online journalists on blogging, the use of video and audio on the web, interactive maps and other ways of doing journalism online

This new edition embraces the new without abandoning the fundamentals of what journalism is all about. It will continue to inspire students of journalism to reflect on everyday practice and connect it to academic debate.
