The Newspapers Handbook
This is a comprehensive guide to the job of the newspaper reporter. It offers advice on a range of different types of newspaper writing, looks at how newspapers cover events and shows how reporting styles can differ in mainstream and non-mainstream newspapers. This handbook encourages a critical and reflective approach to newspaper practice. In this edition, Richard Keeble explores the theoretical, moral and political dimensions of a journalist's job and examines changing newspaper ownership structures and recent ethical controversies. New chapters from Henry Clother and John Turner explore the specialisms of court and local government reporting.
