Newsworthiness

Standard

There are several factors that make information newsworthy timing, proximity, significance, prominence, and human interest. All these elements make a story newsworthy and attractive to readers. The main goal of those covering news stories are to find stories that will interest readers. I had a teacher who said, “Nobody wants to read a story where a dog bites a man, but man bites dog that’s a news story!” Finding stories that are bizarre and unconventional are also considered newsworthy. The elements are used to select news stories, because there is so much news and the journalist cannot cover every story. The editor essentially makes the final call as to what will be covered.

As seen in this political cartoon “Look at this no trouble anywhere. I want my money back!” This defines the exact goal of newsworthiness it has to be news readers want to read!
