AbstractWritten by professional journalists, this collection of case studies is meant to provoke conversation about the issues that shape the production and presentation of the news. The volume is a survey of real-life cases faced by journalists, and covers issues such as questions of privacy and the public interest, standards of verification of the truthfulness of a story, and the commercial imperatives of newsroom culture. The link below leads to supplementary materials and case studies extracted from the text.
