end the boring news reports Oct 5, 2007
This was a great book for anyone wanting to breathe some life and flare into the task of reporting often dry, routine city government meetings. Hard news doesn't have to be clipped and stale. This book shows you how to keep hard news hard, but with some interest, creativity.
