Seventeen years ago, the Committee of Concerned Journalists gathered some of America's most influential newspeople to ask the question, What is journalism for? Through exhaustive research, surveys, interviews, and public forums, they identified the essential elements that define journalism and its role in our society. The result is this, one of the most important books on the media ever written, and winner of the Goldsmith Book Award from Harvard, the Society of Professional Journalists award, and the Bart Richards Award from Penn State University.
Updated with new material covering the rise of social media, sponsored content, a new, collaborative web-based journalism in which anyone professional or citizen can produce news, and much more, this third edition of "The Elements of Journalism" is an essential read for journalists, students, and anyone hoping to stay informed in the digital age.
Tom Rosenstiel designed the Project for Excellence in Journalism and directs its activities. He also serves as vice chairman of the Committee of Concerned Journalists. A journalist for more than 20 years, he is a former media critic for the Los Angeles Times and chief congressional correspondent for Newsweek magazine. Among his books, he is the author with Bill Kovach of The Elements of Journalism: What Newspeople Should Know and the Public Should Expect (2001).
