This fully updated introduction to all aspects of being a journalist includes new sections on handling numbers ad statistics, computer assisted reporting and writing for the Web, as well as an extensive revised chapter on what makes a good reporter, an a new section on sources. Irrespective of language or culture, good journalists share a common commitment to the search for truth, often in far from ideal circumstances. With this assertion, David Randall emphasises that good journalism isn't just about universal objectives: it must also involve the acquisition of a range of skills that will empower journalists to operate in an industry where ownership, technology and information is constantly changing. This acclaimed handbook challenges old attitudes, procedures and techniques of journalism where they are seen as cynical and sloppy.
