Journalism, Journalists, and News Writing
You're at a party. Someone asks what you do. You say you're a writer. Most likely, your interlocutor will think you write novels. But the second choice is probably that you're a journalist. Journalism, whether print (in newspapers, magazines, trade journals), in broadcast media (television and radio), or online really comes down to getting the story and telling it well. And while most journalists are not rich, journalism is one of those writing jobs that do actually pay on a regular basis.

Dear Readers: I'm working on a book, and invite you to be part of it. NOTE: I've already received a tremendous number of responses. All are interesting. Many are long and deeply thoughtful. Several of you have suggested that we make this more interactive, by setting up a discussion board. That's in the works. Stay tuned...
To that end, I hope you will become a part of this book, too. You can start by reading the outline below. My publisher, , agreed that this was a good idea.
How can you join the project? Please tell me
Note: I'm aware that my outline is very light on Iraq war ideas. I'm studying this in real time and expect the new journalism of this war to inform the book in a big way. Again, I encourage your thoughts.
OK, here goes:

"We Mean Business"

In the wake of Jayson Blair, Jack Kelley and numerous other instances of fabrication and plagiarism, the nation's newspapers are scrutinizing their operations and stiffening their defenses against ethical lapses.

and Deeper?
That's the ambitious goal NPR has set for itself as it continues to evolve into a primary source of news. Its audience and endowment have grown dramatically, as has its roster of foreign correspondents. But some fear the heightened emphasis on breaking news will come at the expense of depth and innovative programming.

with Lawrence Surtees Sections: The News Story "Whammy" Nature of News Body of the Story Reporting Ending Types of News Stories Qualities of Good Stories Organization of A News Story A Writer's Voice Starting to Write: The Lead Tips The Angle What is a News Story ? News writers produce news stories. They are called "news stories" because they tell stories about ACTUAL PEOPLE, PLACES, EVENTS and THINGS. Yet a news story is different than traditional stories, such as legends, fairy tales and other works of fiction. Those stories are usually much longer and are organized very differently. The job of a fictional story is to entertain and those stories can afford to deliver their main point at the end of the story, which is often why they begin with the phrase, "Once upon a time. . ." A news story is almost the opposite. It is immediate and often delivers perishable information that may change moments later. It must compete with many other stories for a reader's or listener's attention, so it contains it's punch line in the very first sentence. But a news story is different than other types of non-fiction writing because of "news". If you read something and say to yourself, "I know that", then what you're reading probably is not news and can be considered a historical fact.

    Hard News Story
    Resources Writing Journalism 14 Dec 1999; by Lori Kurtzman, UWEC Junior
    20 Apr 2003 updated by Jerz
    Hard news articles are written so the the reader can stop reading at any time, and still come away with the whole story. This is very different from an essay, which presumes that the audience will stick around to the end, and can therefore build to a finish. There is no need to put a "conclusion" on a news story. Each individual reader will "end" the story whenever he or she gets bored. A particularly interested reader will keep reading to the end. (See also: Fairly complex news feature Analysis of same story The Headline : Convey the general message in as many words as will fit (usually quite a small space). A headline should be informational, and can be clever, as long as the cleverness does not interfere with the information or earn groans from readers.

    Basic News Writing
    The ABCs of news writing are Accuracy, Brevity and Clarity. The first and most important is accuracy a story can be creative and compelling, but if it contains errors, it is worthless. Actually, it is worse than worthless; a false news story undercuts the public trust necessary for the survival of a free press. Keep in mind that the First Amendment specifically protects the press from government control so that the public can receive accurate and unbiased information. The public needs unbiased information to make intelligent choices in the voting booth. This is critical to the process of democracy in our country. If the public loses faith in the accuracy and fairness of the press, loss of faith in democracy will soon follow. Always check numbers, spellings of names, who said what, and the other basic facts of any story. A reporter's job is to find out what is going on, then write a story that's interesting and informative. Accuracy always comes first. Second is brevity. Each word in your story should do a job. If not, take it out. Get to the point. Say it just once. Don't be redundant. Don't say "8 a.m. in the morning," since 8 a.m. is in the morning. Just say 8 a.m. Or say 8 in the morning. Remember the inverted pyramid style of writing. Put the most important fact in the lead. Hook the reader's attention. Explain the lead and then go on to the next most important fact in the second inverted pyramid. And then the next. Lead up to an interesting finish. Don't just stop writing when you run out of information.
