While contemporary journalists must approach each story with the same respect for truth and fairness as their predecessors, additional rigors guided by a new skills set must now also be navigated. A pervasive online and cross-media presence defines journalism today. More than 4,000 newspapers in the United States alone have online sites. Academic programs in journalism and mass communication are reconfiguring their curricula to better prepare students for this media era. As digital journalism rapidly evolves, Reporting and Producing for Digital Media emerges as the definitive textbook. Author Artwick integrates sound journalistic perspective with the skills needed to research, report, write, and present news in a world of digital and converging media. The most recent title in Blackwell Publishing's Media and Technology series, featured topics in this volume include: functions of the press in a digital society; case studies illustrating core journalistic values; legal and ethical issues specific to the Internet; examples and exercises of interactive techniques that set digital storytelling apart; strategies from print and broadcast media that are appropriate for the Web and those that aren’t; framing stories and storytelling tools for the Web; working with photographs, shooting and editing digital video, creating still images from digital video, and planning Flash presentations; working and competing in convergent media. Fully illustrated and complete with chapter-ending activities for further learning, Reporting and Producing for Digital Media is the ideal text for emerging digital, converged journalism curricula, as well programs including digital media in their print and broadcast tracks.
