Blog on hiatuscynfernald

I haven’t taught this class for a while, so this blog is on hiatus. If you’re interested in news writing, though, feel free to poke around and see what’s here. The information is still good. You may also want to check out my other class blog,, which focuses on media writing. ~ Cynthia Advertisements(image)

I’ve updated the class schedule to reflect the changes we discussed in class: This week’s “on the ground reporting” assignment (a news story on either the Locavore Fair or the MADD exhibit on campus) should be about 350 words long and doubled spaced. Your story should include information and/or quotes from at least three sources […](image)

I just want to confirm that a copy of our textbook, Inside reporting: A practical guide to the craft of journalism, is on reserve at the MLK Library. It is available at the reserve desk on the first floor of the library. You can take it out for a couple hours at a time. The […](image)

Welcome to the class blog for Journalism 61, section 1, which meets M/W 10:30-11:45 a.m. in DBH 222 at SJSU. For the past few years I’ve taught Jour61 as a fully online class, but this fall it’ll be “on ground” and in person. You may notice I’m still making some changes to this blog to […](image)

Yes, we’re in a holding pattern, waiting to see if enough students sign up this week to make this section of Journalism 61 a “go” for the spring ’11 semester. I’ll know for sure by Wednesday. If not, I’ll make sure those of you who registered for this section of the class can transfer into […](image)

It’s “website” nowcynmc

Big news: The Associated Press has changed “Web site” to “website.” Even better, AP “tweeted” the change. How trendy is that! It’ll become official in the next edition of the AP Stylebook, which is due out in about a month, but you can start using “website” now. Now if they’d just change e-mail to email, […](image)
