Journalism in a Free Society.
Edwards, Verne E., Jr.
Broadcast and print journalism are interrelated in this book's coverage of the functions and status of the "fourth estate". A first part discusses journalism's magnitude and significance, with separate chapters offering a profile of the press, a discussion of the people's need to know, and a brief history of American journalism. The second part focuses on how journalism functions, and provides chapters on journalistic writing, reporting the news, editing the news, the influence function, the role of advertising, the role of public relations, some legal pitfalls, criticisms of the press, and press status and outlook. Appended are magazine circulation statistics, journalistic codes of ethics, a sample stylebook, and a sample headline schedule. (SH)
