A television or radio broadcast that gives you information about recent events, read by a newsreader with special reports by correspondents.
The Presentation of Information:
News is the report of something that was not known to (someone). Usually it’s about war, government, politics, education, health, the environment, economy, business, fashion and sport. It also covers quirky or unusual events, for example royal ceremonies, laws, taxes, public health and criminals.
The Way We Judge It:
News differs from society to society because what is important in one place may not be significant in another. So if a farm wall collapses killing a cow and a pig, this will be more interesting to people in the country than if it happened in London.
As a journalist, you must ensure that your news story contains all the key facts about the subject matter. This is because news is read very quickly so it needs to be packed with useful details and facts.
Make sure that your headline is catchy and to the point. This will encourage people to click on the link to read your news article.
Adding your byline to the top of your news article can make it look more professional and give it a sense of legitimacy. It also helps with identifying your piece as your own.
Use quotations to highlight the most relevant points and provide a human element to your news article. This will help to make it stand out from the crowd.
