Based on first-hand experience on how a newspaper functions on a daily basis, this insider's account offers a glimpse into the frenetic world of newspaper journalism. From frenzied days--such as September 11 or the death of Princess Diana--to the truisms that drive circulation, this title places readers in the shoes of a journalist on the news-gathering trail. Answers to commonly asked questions associated with working in journalism, such as "Who makes the decision to publish a particular story?" "Why are some stories covered and others ignored?" and "What does the editor-in-chief do, and how does this role affect the editor?" are included.
