|About the book|
No other textbook offers a more engaging and accessible approach to newswriting than Inside Reporting. While emphasizing the basics, this new edition offers a wealth of information on digital reporting and packaging stories in modern, interactive ways. It also includes more useful advice on feature writing—from stories to reviews and column-writing—than any other textbook in the field.

Offers strong coverage of a wide range of relevant topics, with a focus on news writing and reporting basics along with legal and ethical issues.
Visually engaging interior design--incorporating the presentation of key topics in concise, well illustrated, magazine-style spreads--appeals to a generation of readers who want a dynamic, stimulating format.
Distinctive pedagogical features and examples reinforce the book's practical approach, including the utilization of checklists, tips, annotated news excerpts, idea files, questionnaires, exercises, and "Press Room" quotes from more than 100 professional journalists.
"The Morgue," a unique end-of-book archive features actual news articles, feature stories, and leads discussed in the text--many of which are annotated by their original author--providing an inside look at the reporting process.
A new section, “The Journalist’s Guide to Social Media,” discusses ways to use Facebook and Twitter to locate your audience, engage with your readers, and promote your stories after publication.
A new section on ethics in digital media in Chapter 8 explores how reporters can maintain a “clean” online image.
New coverage of reporting on multiple platforms is incorporated throughout the third edition.
Numerous new images from current news events and revised examples throughout keep the third edition up-to-date and relevant.
Direct and practical writing approach reads as an accesible magazine article, and not as a textbook.
