This Second Edition thoroughly addresses the ?converged? nature of much 21st century journalism, with discussion and examples of online practice embedded throughout to represent the reality that online journalism is increasingly part of the job for all journalists.
New and improved features include:

- a new chapter on telling stories through pictures, whether on TV or online
- fresh examples reflecting today?s multimedia journalistic practice
- more insights from online journalists on blogging, the use of video and audio on the web, interactive maps and other ways of doing journalism online.
