The Elements of Journalism
434/2 Tej Colony, Rohtak, Haryana
*New Book at Half Price* A comprehensive and important guide to the ethics, theory and practice of journalism, fully updated and revised to tackle the challenges journalists face in the world of digital media. In the five years since the previous edition of The Elements of Journalism, online media has grown even more influential. Readers are now getting their news from an incredibly diverse array of sources, from Twitter and Facebook to Gawker and Gothamist. The public also has constant access to the news; they can pull up breaking stories on their phones and tablets in an instant. With print media in decline, news stories can be living documents, constantly updating as new information rolls in. This fast-paced world of online media puts a great deal of pressure on journalists, who hold themselves to high standards of truth and responsibility. The Elements of Journalism seeks to teach journalists, aspiring journalists and the public about the standards that journalists must hold themselves to and how to ensure they meet them, even in a world where the pace just keeps increasing.
Important Updates: New and seasoned journalists alike need to know how to work effectively in the fast-paced digital environment-and citizens need to know how to make sense of the news in an age of information overload. The new material, which will focus on the digital transition, will help ensure that The Elements of Journalism will remain one of the industry’s go-to books in coming years.
