Key Readings in Journalism brings together over thirty essential writings that every student of journalism should know. Designed as a primary text for undergraduate students, each reading was carefully chosen in response to extensive surveys from educators reflecting on the needs of todaya€™s journalism classroom. Readings range from critical and historical studies of journalism, such as Walter Lippmanna€™s Public Opinion and Michael Schudsona€™s Discovering the News, to examples of classic reporting, such as Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodwarda€™s All the Presidenta€™s Men.
