News as it Happens

An Introduction to Journalism

Third Edition

Stephen Lamble

  • Market-leading textbook from respected, well-known author
  • Well-written and accessible: engaging and easy to read by students who have no prior knowledge of journalism and rich with practical tips
  • Great breadth: an introductory textbook that can be used at the start of a degree in first year, but also useful across the degree as students delve more into the specialist forms of news reporting
  • Contemporary: revised and updated to include the most up-to-date information

New to this Edition:

  • Updated data and examples throughout, including discussion of wellness blogger Belle Gibson, the 2015 Nepal earthquake, metadata retention laws and 'The Sins of the Father' Corby family case against Allen & Unwin.
  • New chapter 6: Dealing with Spin and Difficult Situations - covers why you should be wary of PR as a journalist, how to report on death and tragedy (including accidents, murder, suicide and mental illness) and how to protect yourself emotionally
  • New practitioner profiles: Emma Field (The Weekly Times), Amelia Brace (channel 7), Mark Willacy (ABC) and Amy Remeikis (Fairfax Digital)
