Summary

Principles of American Journalismintroduces students to the core values of journalism and its singularly important role in a democracy. From the First Amendment to Facebook, Stephanie Craft and Charles Davis provide a comprehensive exploration of the guiding principles of journalism, the ethical and legal foundations of the profession, its historical and modern precepts, the economic landscape of journalism, the relationships among journalism and other social institutions, and the key issues and challenges that contemporary journalists face. Case studies and exercises throughout are designed to build students' ability to think critically about how well journalism performs its function in society, making students more mindful practitioners of journalism and more informed media consumers. This textbook is ideal for use in introductory Principles of Journalism courses, and the companion website provides a full complement of student and instructor resources to enhance the learning experience and connect to the latest news issues and events.
