If you are looking for a job in journalism--or will be some day--check out these tips on clips from the Poynter Institute's Chip Scanlan.



On my site you will find

personal sketch, with some of my background and experiences;

my publications and other presentations;

some books to read about journalism and writing;

a handful of sites to visit -- those I have found helpful;

about journalism, a compendium of quotes that you may or may not find in any other collection. It's a work in progress;

newspaper mottoes -- how newspapers have described themselves to the public; and

miscellany, which includes bits of occasional writing I do just for fun and for the amusement of my friends and some guidelines for graduate students working on theses.


Timely timeless words

The soldier dead come home from Iraq. Photo by Tami Silicio from Seattle Times.

The press was protected so that it could bare the secrets of government and inform the people. Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell.

--Justice Hugo Black, concurring opinion in the Pentagon Papers case
(New York Times v. United States)
