This book is a practical, hands-on guide to the world of journalism, particularly for the beginner. It contains step-by-step instructions on writing for the news media, and practical advice and suggestions on all facets of reporting. It covers the basic skills involved in finding information, interviewing, writing news and feature material, research and investigation, basic subbing, layout and design, the essentials of grammar, the law, and ethical and professional behaviour. The book uses numerous examples to demonstrate its points. It relies almost exclusively on the excellent work of student reporters to show what young people can achieve, despite not having the resources of large news organisations behind them. The book also highlights the efforts of some of the hundreds of students who have worked with the author over many years to produce fine examples of writing and reporting in the very best traditions of journalism.

In the wake of 2010's historic general election politics commands more column inches and air time than ever before. Yet most political journalists failed to foresee the consequences of a coalition government. And they are still struggling to understand and reflect the new political environment in their coverage. While there is plenty of debate about the current state of politics and journalism, aspiring political reporters receive little guidance. Are unscrupulous spin doctors simply spoon-feeding them stories? Do they push their own politically-biased agendas? This book aims to focus on helping to produce competent and confident journalists who report on politics without fear or favour. With chapters on starting out in the trade, where to find the story, how to report it, and how to deal with the political classes, this book is the essential guide for journalism students, trainee journalists and journalists looking to understand the mechanisms of Westminster and Whitehall. Edited by Sheila Gunn, who was a political reporter on The Times and spin doctor to John Major, So You Want To Be A Political Journalist features contributions from a wide range of current and former political journalists from print, broadcast and on-line media. * An essential resource for journalism students and the perfect refresher for seasoned reporters. * Author lectures on political journalism on City University's prestigious journalism course. * The National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) recognizes 63 journalism courses at colleges around Britain. In addition, there are hundreds of further colleges and organisations running media studies courses.

The Survival Guide to Journalism is aimed not only at undergraduate and post-graduate students of Journalism, but indeed anyone from any background who is interested in making a living (full or part-time) either through their writing and editorial ability. In it you'll find some traditional journalistic principles as well as up-to-date information on where the best opportunities are today. My advice is deliberately hands-on and straight to the point, and I have included useful tips from top working professionals. There are exercises to try out and short Q&A sessions to help clear up any uncertainties there may be about each chapter. Where possible, I have included useful links and contacts to organisations that specialise in helping aspiring journalists to survive through those difficult first months and years. Because it pays to have the right survival skills, The Survival Guide to Journalism sums up the state of the industry today and how to establish yourself in it, as well as including practical guidelines on news and feature writing. The Survival Guide to Journalism concentrates on freelance journalism with the emphasis on practicalities such as sending an invoice or dealing with tax issues. More specialist areas of writing have also been covered such as arts reviewing, travel writing and blogging and the book highlights some of the exciting opportunities created by new media.

The director of 2004’s smash hit documentary Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism teams with journalist Alexandra Kitty in an even more detailed and updated examination of how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, have been running a “race to the bottom” in television news. They examine media consolidation by focusing on the Fox News Channel: How did Fox gain prominence? How did the Fox News Channel gain audiences and influence public debate? How does Fox report reality? Is the network merely interpreting events or is it pushing propaganda? Who are the main players and how do they treat their friends and enemies? Why should readers care about how Fox takes liberties with its facts? Each chapter blends interviews from Greenwald’s documentary, transcripts from Fox programs, and other research pertaining to Fox News not only to illustrate the Fox “mentality,” but also to show the factual, ethical and structural problems with the news channel. Interviews and transcripts are analyzed to give readers a strong sense of what Fox is actually telling its audiences.
