Also covered is the way magazine publications dictate not only which articles and stories get published but also how they are presented.

Finally, you are introduced to the role editors play in the print media industry, the different types of editor and their function in the newsroom. You will learn about editorial manipulation and its impact on the functioning of a fair and just society. You will learn about editorial bias which is the suppression or distortion of important facts, and how it should be fought by media organizations through a process of checks and balances. The function of producers and sub-editors in the newsroom is also explored.

This course will be of great interest to journalists and publishing professionals who want to develop their understanding of the print media industry and how they can develop the skills needed to research, prepare and publish news articles.
