The latest from JPROF: How our style of newswriting developed
Dr. Ed Caudill of the University of Tennessee gives a short preview of his talk on the development of our current newswriting style (scheduled for Aug. 31, 2010, lecture of JEM 230). Caudill uses the news coverage of the wars in which America has fought as examples of the changing style of newswriting that journalists have used. Audience and technology, he says, have been the driving forces in the development of these styles of writing. Read and see it all on JPROF.com.
