Intro to News Notes Digital Media: News writing for broadcast HISTORY: 1690s  The lead was developed in case the telegraph went down  Newspaper publishers were often the writers and editors also  The newspaper blended fact and opinion  OBJECTIVITY was not the goal  Newspapers often challenged British rule openly The stamp act hurt newspapers. In the 19 century newspapers became a mass medium -newspapers were much larger. Objectivity was still not the goal -people were starting to hired as reporters (the jobs were splitting up) Newspaper is business! What is news? “News is anything that interests a large part of the community and hasn’t been brought to attention before” –Charles A Dana “If a dog bites a man, that isn’t news. But is a man bites a dog, that’s news” –John B. Bogert - Increasing circulation OBJECTIVITY becomes the goal so the reader can make their own interpretation. Decide for yourself. - 1830 Being concise is important - Newspapers started sending reports on site to cover civil war battles. Using the telegraph led to concise writing due to the cost by word. Top of the Story  Who  What  Where  When  Why Timeliness (when) Impact (how many affected) Prominence (value of the people in the story) Proximity (closest to the issue) Conflict (issues) The unusual (weird, wild, shocking) Currency Necessity
