"The revolutionary changes under way in the world of journalism require a new kind of student resource. The New Journalist offers a broad overview for introductory-level students in journalism and multimedia courses. With a critical thinking approach taken throughout, it covers everything from an introduction to the essential practical skills that today’s journalists require, to “think pieces” on the state of journalism today, to an overview of emerging business models.
"While emphasizing the changing technology at the heart of journalism’s reinvention, the book does not overlook the need to address the perennially important elements that excellent journalism requires, such as solid interviewing and research skills, ethical considerations, proper story structure, and more."
