Public Affairs Reporting offers an inclusive and diverse perspective to public affairs reporting.
It expands the traditional approach to public affairs reporting beyond the mainstay of local and regional news coverage to include virtually everything that is involved in public life: from government to the arts, religion to the environment, business to law enforcement, and more. “Professional Tips” sections in each chapter provide a series of questions and answers from professional journalists.
