Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From dailies, to specialized monthlies and quarterlies, to online journals, there are now more venues for disseminating information than ever before--all of them in need of qualified reporters. Written for a new generation of journalists, this handbook schools readers in the art and science of reporting as practiced at the world's largest and oldest news service. Written by an ace reporter with over 20 years on the job, it provides expert guidance and all the tools needed to successfully investigate and report on newsworthy events, locally, nationally, and internationally, including traditional pencil-and-paper technique as well as cutting-edge computer-assisted reporting technologies. Throughout, the book is enriched by insightful tips and anecdotes from veteran AP reporters such as trial writer Linda Deutsch, national writer and Pulitzer winner Charles J. Hanley, special correspondent Mort Rosenblum, space writer Marcia Dunn, and others.
