Akshay Kumar Nayak (Author) Pushpendra P. Singh (Author)
Synopsis This book is based on newspaper reporting, journalistic writing and editing besides the main components of a news report-the body and the lead. The news items that appear in newspapers are also called news stories.

In literature stories may not have their basis in actual events, but a news story is always based on facts. History is also based on facts but it deals with things of the past while news stories are on current events. Further, a news story is normally written in inverted pyramid style, that is, the most important facts come first followed by other facts in order of significance.

The inverted pyramid style has developed in journalism over the years. It helps the readers who don't have enough time to read the whole story. It also helps sub-editors who can easily discards as much of the story from the tail without affecting readability.

The Book titled "News Reporting, Journalistic Writing and Editing" has been brought out with the main objective of enlightening the readers regarding the latest trends in news reporting, news collection, news writing and editing with a view to making the print as well as the electronic medic most user friendly.

We are sure that this book will be quite useful to the students of Bachelor of Journalism and Mass Communication (BJMC) and of Master of Journalism and Mass Communication (MJMC) besides researchers under going M.Phil. and Ph.D. Degree programmes.
