Journalism in America: An Introduction to the News Media.
Berry, Thomas Elliott
This volume provides a broad introduction to the roles of the four principal media of mass communications--the newspaper, the magazine, radio, and television--and presents the fundamentals of writing for each of these media. Each medium is examined with respect to its unique position and influence in American society and is compared, for editorial similarities and differences, to other communications media. Chapters include discussion of recent issues in the field of mass communications; the news story; interviewing, feature stories, pictures, and copy editing in newspapers; make-up; editorial policy; the editorial; the column; the school paper; writing for radio and television; and writing for magazines. Appendixes provide a stylebook, suggestions for reading proofs, a glossary, and advice for developing a basic professional library in journalism. (KS)
