In this era of media convergence, the second edition of "Editing Today" continues the evolutionary transformation of Martin L. Gibson's classic "Editing in the Electronic Era", introducing prospective journalists to the basics of editing and design by following a true story through these processes at a major newspaper, on the newspaper's Web desk, and on its TV outlet. Readers are guided through the fundamentals of editing both words and layout with contemporary software. Expanded and updated sections address pagination, verifying information, grammar, wordiness, editing the hard-news story, telling the news in other ways, copyright law, design, Photoshop, page layout, and Web design. Through more photos, more examples, and more compelling design, the textbook and workbook of "Editing Today, 2nd Edition" effectively prepares journalism students and working professionals for the challenges of editing and designing in this era of media convergence.
