Based on first-hand experience on how a newspaper functions on a daily basis, this insider’s account offers a glimpse into the frenetic world of newspaper journalism. From frenzied days—such as September 11 or the death of Princess Diana—to the truisms that drive circulation, this title places readers in the shoes of a journalist on the news-gathering trail. Answers to commonly asked questions associated with working in journalism, such as Who makes the decision to publish a particular story? Why are some stories covered and others ignored? and What does the editor-in-chief do, and how does this role affect the editor? are included.
