to accompany telecourse on News Writing September 8, 2010
by
Annenberg's Learner web site streams the video course for free on demand, and the course appears to accompany the 3rd edition of this text, which is now in the 6th edition, but the videos should still be relevant. Good introduction to news writing for students of journalism.
