News is an unpublished account of human action, which seeks to influence, enlighten, or entertain the reader. The first prerequisite of news is that it should not have already been published somewhere else before. In other words, it cannot be a newspaper or a magazine. It must come straight to the public’s attention for the very first time.
The news story circulates through many channels, including newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and the web. The major portion of all news stories is produced by newspapers and magazines. They are edited, presented, and marketed through newspapers and magazines. Some of them also receive their news from other media sources such as television, radio, and the internet. But, most news organizations rely on a combination of different approaches in order to achieve quality. A great deal of emphasis is laid on reporting and editing of stories, and the production of news stories.
Every news article has a purpose to inform, sell, or otherwise influence people about an issue or event. A newsworthy article is one that is genuinely newsworthy and in context is relevant to people’s lives at the moment. One can classify any news article according to its relevance to current events. So if you were writing an article about the latest developments in the Middle East, you would probably focus your efforts on reporting about the current events that have affected or are affected by the region. You could then break the news story down into several segments and sub-chapters that would be relevant to reporting about Middle East events as a whole, or specific events that have taken place in that part of the world.
In addition, you can create separate segments of your news article, and these would be devoted to different topics. You might want to write an article on a historical milestone that happened in your country, and in the next sub-heading you could write about various historical figures that had an impact on your country and its history. In addition, you can even break your news stories down by geographic area. For instance, if you live in the Golden State you wouldn’t want to read about the latest water crisis in the Pacific, but if you lived in the Deep South you would want to know what the latest health situation is in those regions. By separating the segment of your newsworthy article based on location, you can more effectively express your thoughts and ideas to your audience.
A news story, when properly reported, will be able to tell its intended audience about any given event with reference to facts. However, the goal of journalism is to create news that is in relation to how the human heart feels. That being said, most reporters feel that it is not their responsibility to inform people about politics; they should instead rely on sources that they trust for such information. For instance, one would rarely see a reporter asking an actor who just came out of rehab a question about politics. It is the editor’s job to add that bit of context and human interest to a news story; without adding that bit of context, a news story loses its human interest and ends up as pure entertainment.
In short, we believe that newsworthy material should always be written around the basis of six values: accuracy, insight, credibility, human interest, purpose, and truth. If a news story lacks one of these values, it is not newsworthy. For instance, if a piece of news reports were to report that John Edwards’ dog bit a woman while he was committing to her, that would be newsworthy according to the standard of our six values, but it would not be a story that would gain much political or informational value from the reporting of the story. This is where you use your imagination and your sense of purpose to help you determine what is newsworthy and what isn’t.
