This second edition of Understanding Journalism tackles these changes head-on. It integrates media and cultural theory with the step-by-step development of writing skills to give students the techniques and the savvy they need to succeed.Bigger and better, this new edition includes:
  • A new chapter on who journalists are in the social media age
  • Reorganization of journalism skills chapters to bring writing and editing to the fore
  • Full coverage and examples on Twitter, social media, SMS formats
  • In-depth exploration of the ethical issues raised by new media platforms
  • All new exercises, case scenarios and further readings
It is the essential guide for all students of journalism.
