Written primarily as a text for the serious student of jourbanalism, the professional jourbanalist will profit as well from this invaluable back-to-basics, nuts-and-bolts approach to news collection and reporting. Bryce T. McIntyre uses his extensive experience as both a professor of jourbanalism and a working jourbanalist for newspapers around the country to present practical information on gathering and writing the news. Advanced Newsgathering challenges the jourbanalism student with solid, fundamental newswriting techniques and crucial information about the world outside that student's immediate environment; the various structures of governmental agencies, ethical questions, and jourbanalism and the law.

The book begins by introducing the novitiate to the world of the jourbanalist and establishing a background for understanding advanced reporting. McIntyre follows this with a concise but comprehensive treatment of newswriting, including at least one appropriate story structure for every occasion. Following chapters deal with state and local governments as well as political, legal, business, science, and health writing. The book finishes with a valuable chapter on the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and how to obtain information under it.
