Writing and Reporting the News, Third Edition, by Gerald Lanson and Mitchell Stephens provides thorough instructions on writing and reporting and extensive opportunities to apply those instructions. Based on the authors' careers as journalists-and on the experience of dozens of other first-rate reporters-this unique textbook/workbook combination gives students a sense of the challenges, pressures, and rewards of the profession. It supplies hundreds of real-life examples and problems designed to accomplish four goals: * teach a comprehensive set of complex writing and reporting skills * expose students to real-life sources of information * train students to think and act like reporters * help students think about words and how they are used This new edition offers updated examples and enhanced graphics, including the addition of story diagrams and information boxes. A new section covers writing for the Internet, focusing on the medium's specific writing style and on packaging stories for multimedia format. Lanson and Stephens have expanded their discussions concerning "good" and "bad" writing, employing comparative examples to explain the reasons for such categorizations.
