Newswriting and Reporting.
Neal, James M.; Brown, Suzanne S.
This book shows the novice reporter how to recognize a news story, get the necessary ingredients, put them together properly, and polish the finished product. It also presents a look at the reporter's work and details the major legal pitfalls awaiting unwary journalists. Since the step-by-step techniques shown concentrate more on the process of reporting than on its application to a particular beat or medium, they can be applied to any reporting assignment. Instruction in writing skills is offered along with practical reporting knowledge. (Author/KS)
