Now Available: Making News at The New York Times

by Kelly Witchen on May 6, 2014

We are proud to announce a new title from digitalculturebooks, Making News at The New York Times by Nikki Usher. This is the fifth book in our New Media World series.
Making News at The New York Times
Making News at The New York Times is the first in-depth portrait of the nation’s, if not the world’s, premier newspaper in the digital age. It presents a lively chronicle of months spent in the newsroom observing daily conversations, meetings, and journalists at work. We see Page One meetings, articles developed for online and print from start to finish, the creation of ambitious multimedia projects, and the ethical dilemmas posed by social media in the newsroom. Here, the reality of creating news in a 24/7 instant information environment clashes with the storied history of print journalism, and the tensions present a dramatic portrait of news in the online world.

Nikki Usher is Assistant Professor at the School of Media and Public Affairs, George Washington University.

Making News at The New York Times is freely available to read online or may be purchased from the University of Michigan Press.
