Analysing newspapers

In class we watched a clickview video on writing for newspapers. The important points covered included:
The profound power to omit – what is left out of a newspaper is as important as what is included.
When a bigger story breaks than the ones you have already organised you have to push back the stories that you were originally running.
News Reports must be clear, concise, structured and argue pesuasively
A newspaper must be: ordered, apealing, accessable, visual and laid out with structure.
Journalism should be viewed as a public service.
