The invention of news: how the world came to know about itself
by Pettegree, Andrew

9780300179088Andrew PettegreeThe Invention of News: How the World Came to Know about ItselfThe extraordinary history of news and its dissemination, from medieval pilgrim tales to the birth of the newspaper Long before the invention of printing, let alone the availability of a daily newspaper, people desired to be informed. In the pre-industrial era news was gathered and shared through conversation and gossip, civic ceremony, celebration, sermons, and proclamations. The age of print brought pamphlets, edicts, ballads, journals, and the first news-sheets, expanding the news community from local to worldwide. This groundbreaking book tracks the history of news in ten countries over the course of four centuries. It evaluates the unexpected variety of ways in which information was transmitted in the premodern world as well as the impact of expanding news media on contemporary events and the lives of an ever-more-informed public.   Andrew Pettegree investigates who controlled the news and who reported it; the use of news as a tool of political protest and religious reform; issues of privacy and titillation; the persistent need for news to be current and journalists trustworthy; and people's changed sense of themselves as they experienced newly opened windows on the world. By the close of the eighteenth century, Pettegree concludes, transmission of news had become so efficient and widespread that European citizens--now aware of wars, revolutions, crime, disasters, scandals, and other events--were poised to emerge as actors in the great events unfolding around them. - Description from Syndetics

Beyond news: the future of journalism
by Stephens, Mitchell

9780231159388Mitchell StephensBeyond News: The Future of JournalismFor a century and a half, journalists made a good business out of selling the latest news or selling ads next to that news. Now that news pours out of the Internet and our mobile devices--fast, abundant, and mostly free--that era is ending. Our best journalists, Mitchell Stephens argues, instead must offer original, challenging perspectives--not just slightly more thorough accounts of widely reported events. His book proposes a new standard: "wisdom journalism," an amalgam of the more rarified forms of reporting--exclusive, enterprising, investigative--and informed, insightful, interpretive, explanatory, even opinionated takes on current events. This book features an original, sometimes critical examination of contemporary journalism, both on- and offline, and it finds inspiration for a more ambitious and effective understanding of journalism in examples from twenty-first-century articles and blogs, as well as in a selection of outstanding twentieth-century journalism and Benjamin Franklin's eighteenth-century writings. Most attempts to deal with journalism's current crisis emphasize technology. Stephens emphasizes mindsets and the need to rethink what journalism has been and might become. - Description from Syndetics

Working the story: a guide to reporting and news writing for journalists and public relations professionals
by Starr, Douglas Perret; Dunsford, Deborah Williams

9780810889118Douglas Perret Starr; Deborah Williams DunsfordWorking the Story: A Guide to Reporting and News Writing for Journalists and Public Relations ProfessionalsWorking the Story: A Guide to Reporting and News Writing for Journalists and Public Relations Professionals is far more than a textbook for students and newcomers to news reporting and public relations. It is an invaluable reference guide for professionals in both fields. Best of all, it follows its own teachings: it is concise and to the point, easy to read, and clearly understandable. Unlike other works in the field, it does more than just offer advice to writers on how to write. It provides the background every reporter and public relations professional needs to do the job, from how governmental bodies work to how to cover a board meeting. Douglas Perret Starr and Deborah Williams Dunsford not only explain what to look for and how to write a news article but also offer advice on how news stories should be written for greatest impact or how to generate copy for different media types, from the printed page to the computer screen to the radio and television broadcast. Drawing on a lifetime of study and practice, Starr and Dunsford cover a vast array of topics: techniques for interviewing, covering, and writing hard news stories, features, columns, and arts reviews; what public relations is, what it is not, and how it interrelates to newswriting; and speech ghostwriting and preparing corporate spokespersons for crises, briefings, and hostile interviews. Working the Story also includes eminently practical appendices on everything from keyboard shortcuts to common word definitions and usages in news reporting, from freelancing to applying for a job. Intended for beginners and seasoned professionals alike, Working the Story should sit near the keyboard of every student, every reporter, and every public relations officer and publicist. - Description from Syndetics

The new censorship: inside the global battle for media freedom
by Simon, Joel

9780231160643Joel SimonThe New Censorship: Inside the Global Battle for Media FreedomJournalists are being imprisoned and killed in record numbers. Online surveillance is annihilating privacy, and the Internet can be brought under government control at any time. Joel Simon, the executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, warns that we can no longer assume that our global information ecosystem is stable, protected, and robust. Journalists are increasingly vulnerable to attack by authoritarian governments, militants, criminals, and terrorists, who all seek to use technology, political pressure, and violence to set the global information agenda. Reporting from Pakistan, Russia, Turkey, Egypt, and Mexico, among other hotspots, Simon finds journalists under threat from all sides. The result is a growing crisis in information--a shortage of the news we need to make sense of our globalized world and fight human rights abuses, manage conflict, and promote accountability. Drawing on his experience defending journalists on the front lines, he calls on "global citizens," U.S. policy makers, international law advocates, and human rights groups to create a global freedom-of-expression agenda tied to trade, climate, and other major negotiations. He proposes ten key priorities, including combating the murder of journalists, ending censorship, and developing a global free-expression charter to challenge the criminal and corrupt forces that seek to manipulate the world's news. - Description from Syndetics

Bias in the booth: an insider exposes how sports media distort the news
by Gwinn, Dylan

9781621573319Dylan GwinnBias in the Booth: An Insider Exposed How Sports Media Distort the NewsMost of us see sports as a welcome--even blessed--relief from the challenges and frustrations of everyday life. We want to sit back, open a beer, and enjoy the game. But many of those who bring us the game have a different agenda--they use their broadcasting platform to harangue us with their own politically correct preoccupations. If a seventh-round NFL draft pick who can't make the team or an over-the-hill basketball player declares that he's gay, he gets wall-to-wall media coverage and is hailed as a hero. If a stripper accuses college lacrosse players of rape, liberal sports reporters lead the lynch mob--with no apologies when the bearers of"white privilege" are proved innocent. In his blistering new book Bias in the Booth , sports reporter and commentator Dylan Gwinn takes you inside the sports media spin machine to reveal what they hope you won't notice: the sports media are no different from the news and entertainment media. - Description from Syndetics

Engaged journalism: connecting with digitally empowered news audiences
by Batsell, Jake

9780231168342Jake BatsellEngaged Journalism: Connecting with Digitally Empowered News AudiencesEngaged Journalism explores the changing relationship between news producers and audiences and the methods journalists can use to secure the attention of news consumers. Based on Jake Batsell's extensive experience and interaction with more than twenty innovative newsrooms, this book shows that, even as news organizations are losing their agenda-setting power, journalists can still thrive by connecting with audiences through online technology and personal interaction. Batsell conducts interviews with and observes more than two dozen traditional and startup newsrooms across the United States and the United Kingdom. Traveling to Seattle, London, New York City, and Kalamazoo, Michigan, among other locales, he attends newsroom meetings, combs through internal documents, and talks with loyal readers and online users to document the successes and failures of the industry's experiments with paywalls, subscriptions, nonprofit news, live events, and digital tools including social media, data-driven interactives, news games, and comment forums. He ultimately concludes that, for news providers to survive, they must constantly listen to, interact with, and fulfill the specific needs of their audiences, whose attention can no longer be taken for granted. Toward that end, Batsell proposes a set of best practices based on effective, sustainable journalistic engagement. - Description from Syndetics
