Now that anyone with a keyboard and an Internet connection can be a virtual journalist, a growing concern among professionals is accuracy in reporting. This book asks what exactly does it take to become a professional journalist and which ones should readers trust. It also teaches readers to spot reputable news sites and look skeptically at others for political bias or misinformation. Other questions include the ethics behind the growing use of anonymous sources and the ability to hide one’s digital identity. This book cuts straight to the heart of the most important rule in journalism: getting the story right.
