Description

Computer-Assisted Reporting: A Comprehensive Primer is a foundational guide to CAR, and the only one written from a Canadian perspective. Ideal for journalism students as well as practicing reporters in print and broadcasting, the text provides indispensable instruction and helpful tips for using the major classes of CAR software. Each chapter teaches a range of software skills using the same types of data that journalists encounter. Engaging examples are drawn from actual CAR generated articles and newsroom stories. To ensure accessibility, the text avoids acronyms and complicated computer terminology, and is richly illustrated with informative screen shots. Computer-assisted reporting has become an essential skill for all journalists, a fact that this text acknowledges by combining the best elements of traditional information gathering with modern computerized techniques
