It covers some of the most important issues facing journalists today: how to restore the credibility of journalism, how journalists see their craft and how they connect craft to values, how leadership is expressed in news companies, and how the practice of journalism connects with its purpose in a democratic society. Many aspects of the news media are considered: reporting, writing, news judgment, editing, visual journalism, ethics, community coverage, language, ownership and leadership, new media, and race and diversity.The authors create a vision of modern journalism that is timely, hopeful, responsible, and creative.
