Choosing and rewriting news

All news goes through a filter of editorial decision making.
Is the story relevant?
How recently did it occur?
Who are the stakeholders?
Is it in the public interest?

Choose from the selection of your fellow students to choose the following:

Which story is the lead?
Which story has potential to be expanded upon as a feature article?
Which story makes a good gossip piece?
Is there any particularly story that is controversial?
How can you protect or not exploit the subjects in the story?
How can the stories be improved?

Create headlines and edit the pieces so that they are concise.
