The Universal Journalist
Published by Pluto Press
1996, 197pp, ISBN 0745311091, Paperback
Good journalism isnít just about universal objectives: it must also involve the acquisition of a range of skills that will empower journalists to operate in an industry where ownership, technology and information are constantly changing. This is a much needed handbook that challenges old attitudes, procedures and techniques of journalism where they are seen as cynical and sloppy.
David Randall shows that there is a way, often lots of ways, to produce honest and thoughtful journalism and thus restore faith in a business beset from without by the enemies of free expression and from within by traitors to journalismís best standards: whether from the state or from the encroaching ambitions of the media moguls of West and East.
