Description

A comprehensive A-to-Z dictionary of journalistic buzzwords and phrases, this witty book is both a handy reference and a humorous look at the true absurdity of journalists' tired quips and cliches. With an irreverent tone, the authors present hundreds of entries, the majority of which are accompanied by real-world examples and well-phrased criticisms, on topics such as incendiary leads, double entendres, media shoptalk, teasers, hidden agendas, and tabloid-TV excesses. A go-to resource for journalists, students, and word lovers, this book is a vanguard for identifying the misled word-based methods employed by modern media outlets.
