Does anyone happen to know if this book is in the bookstore yet? I completely forgot about it.

I seem to recall someone showing me a free online version of the book, but I don't remember where...

Regardless of whether it's in the bookstore, it is available as a digital download for about $10 from Amazon, among other sources. There are also dozens of used copies for sale.

I'm not aware of a free online version of this.
I do know that Gillmor's We the Media is available online for free, as is one of the EL200 texts.

Wow... This text is amazing. In the three chapters assigned, the authors already addressed some of my own biggest concerns about being a journalist -- particularly, concerns about expressing personal opinions to the public.

I especially loved the passage about the journalism professor whose students have managed to prevent innocent people from being executed -- it really demonstrates the raw power of investigation.

Well, Chris, it looks like at least you and I will have a nice conversation during class.
