  • 33. What Makes a Story?
    • Controversy. The worse it is, the better for the media.
    • Conflict. Between groups of people, industries, issues or ideas.

    • Timeliness & competitive advantage (Is it an exclusive to that paper or TV station?).
    • Access to & reliability of sources – often just knowing there is someone who can educate a reporter on an issue is reason enough for them to feel comfortable enough to do a story.

    • Personal thoughts and reflections that meet your goal?
    • Are you first? The only? The most trusted to share it?
