It is not so long ago that the culmination of each day's work for a journalist was the late night publication of tomorrow's newspaper, the production of which involved bringing together the work of journalists, sub-editors, editors, photographers, typesetters, compositors, printers, delivery drivers, news agents and a string of others in what came to be known as "the daily miracle". Today, however, news reporting and dissemination is more an instant miracle than merely a once-a-day occurrence. That change has been dramatic. It has brought with it a need to rethink the way journalists are educated and the need for a fresh new book like this to reflect those changes. News as it Happens is a comprehensive guide for journalism students and provides a strong foundation that can be used across the breadth of their studies.
