Summary: This text sets the standard for college news editing courses by offering comprehensive instruction and a focus on "the editor's attitude"--news values, ethics, newsroom decision-making, and an understanding of audience. The text equips students both with the basics of effective publications editing and with the background needed to deal with the changing nature of the print medium and news forums. The new edition offers expanded coverage of editing for broa ...show moredcast and the Web, more voices from today's newsroom, and current examples taken from recent news stories, including the 2003 ethics scandal at The New York Times.

New to This Edition

  • This streamlined edition features shorter sections on theoretical presentations and historical explanations, and succinct sidebars that can be used at the instructor's discretion. Each chapter has been shortened so that it may easily be read and discussed within a single week's classes.
  • The text offers updated information and greater emphasis on the editing demands of the Web as well as editing skills for writers, public relations students, and other communication professionals, with examples and lessons from the digital newsroom and other nonprint media (addressing such issues as broadcast style and layering on the Web).
  • More voices from the newsroom are incorporated throughout, allowing working editors to speak to students about the skills they will need to make the transition from classroom to newsroom.
  • Updated examples address the way in which the events of September 11th, the military response in Afghanistan, and the war in Iraq have influenced today's journalism. Other major stories included are the 2000 election, the Columbia disaster, and the spread of global diseases.
  • The new edition discusses the growing reality of convergence in the media workplace, and reflects the need to have editing courses serve broadcasting, public relations, and advertising students, in addition to print journalism students.
  • A new comprehensive chapter on trimming stories and creating briefs is the first of its kind to appear in an introductory editing text.
  • A new student CD-ROM, Contemporary Editing Workbook Version 2.0, is packaged free with every new copy of the text! The revised CD-ROM is full of stimulating and effective exercises for student editors, including interactive group editing exercises.
Features
  • An emphasis on fundamentals. From its highly regarded treatment of grammar to its step-by-step guidance in story editing, headline writing, and design, this book gives students a thorough grounding in the basic skills and concepts demanded of editors in every field.
  • A wide focus on standards and principles. In addition to offering a strong chapter on ethics, the authors stress the ethical dimension of all editing, from basic accuracy to the handling of polls and pictures, to the new issues raised by linking, partnering, and interactivity on the Web.
  • Unique chapters. The text includes full chapters on editing local and community news, wire news, broadcast feeds, polls, and graphics.
