Editorial Reviews


"If you are doing public journalism, this book is an excellent source of ideas and questions related to practicing journalism that makes it 'as easy as possible for citizens to make intelligent decisions about public affairs and to get them carried out' through a process of consciousness-raising, working through, and resolution. If you resist the idea of doing public journalism, this book may weaken your resistance...For educators, items addressed in Pushing the Envelope may be adapted for assignments and classroom discussions...Doing Public Journalism should be required reading for reporters, students and professionals...The book has an excellent annotated bibliography that points to examples of actual public journalism projects--and the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of key contacts." --David R. Thompson and Richard A. Phelan, University of South Carolina, in Journalism and Mass Communication Educator

"In this timely and practical book, Arthur Charity argues that journalists are also citizens and that as citizens they too have civic responsibilities. Doing Public Journalism not only tells us why, but in straightforward and lucid prose shows us how the media can assume these responsibilities--the other side of their First Amendment rights. A book for everyone in the media and everyone exposed to the media: in other words, a book for everyone." --Benjamin R. Barber, Ph.D., Walt Whitman Professor of Political Science, Rutgers University

"A wise and practical guide to the most promising innovation in journalism in our time. Recommended for students, teachers and professionals." --James
"Doing Public Journalism is an important, clearly written and useful first handbook on the emerging practice of public journalism." --Edmund B. Lambeth, Ph.D., Professor of Journalism, Univ of Missouri
