Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a detailed, nuanced, and engagingly written look at how the Times is adapting to the challenges of the digital age. The author's love of journalism and the Times comes through clearly, but doesn't impede her ability to look critically -- and with unique insight -- at how the paper has sometimes struggled to integrate its tradition of the highest standards of print journalism with the demands of online publishing and social media engagement. Most interesting for me were the thoughful discussions of the ethical issues raised by these changes. Highly recommended for anyone who cares about how news is made.

As a journalism student, finding out where news comes from has always been of interest to me. Who makes the final decisions? What content makes the cut? Whose job is it to tweet at 3 AM? In this captivating and eye-opening read, Usher delves into these questions and more as she shows what it's truly like to make news at The New York Times. Definitely recommend for anyone studying journalism.

I am not a journalist or an academic, but I found this book to be a fascinating peek into the New York Times and how the culture and standards of journalism changed with the growth and demands of online journalism. Dr. Usher brought insight into an aspect of media that now I think is not talked about enough. I loved how she was able to bring in interesting historical anecdotes and make them feel relevant. I definitely view the news - and especially online news media websites - with a completely different perspective having read this book.

Dr. Usher provides an excellent introduction to the workings of the modern newsroom in the digital age. She explores the ever-changing relationship between social media and print journalism with an attentive eye for detail. Her writing style is lively and accessible for non-academic readers like me. i especially enjoyed the discussion of Twitter's integration into the newsroom. Highly recommended for those interested in the future of journalism or want a peek inside the workings of a celebrated newspaper.
