This is the best introductory journalism textbook I've encountered. Includes several great assignments for in-class work; also drives home the importance of factchecking (many of the assignments feature mispellings/contradictions that force students to verify the info). Effectively teaches nuts & bolts journalism while encouraging students to develop their news sense.

An all-porpose text for an intro class.

Surely there are better texts than this. I would have learned a ton more from Perry Parks' Making Important News Interesting. I hope that's the new JRN 200 text.
