Abstract:

Program 1. What Is News?: Examines how journalists determine what the public needs and wants to know. Reporters and editors from diverse news organizations -- including The Washington Post, The National Enquirer, and CNN -- discuss editorial decision making and define news as it relates to journalism ethics and the news writing process.

Program 2. Hard news leads: Shows the power and process of the summary lead in newspaper, broadcast, and PR writing. A broad spectrum of writers -- for example, White House correspondent Helen Thomas and Chicago Defender editor Michael Brown -- discuss and demonstrate this basic journalism tool.

Program 3. News writing language and style: Explores the specifics of print journalism style -- from the AP to Rolling Stone magazine -- focusing on accuracy and detail, enlivened by humor as Dave Barry and other writers confess their language sins and steer tomorrow's journalists toward production of professional and pristine prose.

Program 4. Development and organization of a story: Deals with use of the inverted pyramid as well as hourglass and circle story shapes. Top journalists -- such as Bob Woodward -- along with Roy Peter Clark (The Poynter Institute) discuss and demonstrate focus sentences, transitions, and nut graphs as story development techniques.
