Beschreibung:

Like the technologies that support it, the craft of online journalism is evolving quickly. This timely book helps students develop standards of excellence, through interviews with more than 30 writers, editors and producers, and dozens of examples of strong work. The author provides a framework of concepts to show how the field is evolving and challenged by competition, staffing limitations, and other pressures. Discussion is organized around four key elements: speed and accuracy with depth in breaking news; comprehensiveness in multimedia content; open-endedness in story development, including public contributions; and conversation with users. Chapter-length treatments of these topics bring home the realities of online work to students, who also come to appreciate how excellence and ethics online go hand in hand.

For today's students and journalists, knowing how to build a website is not enough - knowing how to craft a news story for maximum impact via the web is a must in today's media-saturated world. Drawing on interviews from more than 30 award-winning online journalists, editors, and producers (from the likes of NYTimes.com, WSJ.com, MSNBC.com and washingtonpost.com), author David Craig helps students understand the meaning, importance, and elements of journalistic excellence in today's online environment.Organized around four elements of online excellence - comprehensiveness, speed and accuracy, open-endedness in story development, and conversation with users - the book provides detailed discussions of multimedia projects, blogs, user-generated content, and breaking news. In addition, it examines the connection between ethics and excellence in order to more critically evaluate the work and practices of online journalism.
