Transcript

  • 1. News Values.
  • 2. Closeness to home • Stories about events and situations in someone’s home community are more newsworthy than events that take place far away.
  • 3. Negativity Bad news is more exciting than good news. Stories about death, tragedy, bankruptcy, violence, damage, natural disasters, politics or extreme weather conditions are always rated above positive stories.
  • 4. Continuity • A story which is already in the news gathers a more attention as the story develops more, this is usually because correspondents and news teams are ready to report on any further developments as they are aware of the story.
  • 5. Unexpectedness • If the story is bizarre or out of the ordinary it is more likely to attract more attention than any other everyday occurrence as it the shock will have a huge impact on the story.
  • 6. Personality • Stories that are focused on a certain person can be presented from a ‘human interest’ angle particularly if the person is well known.
  • 7. Currency • This means how relevant and recent the story is. If its happening now its more likely to gather attention rather than something that happened last week.
  • 8. Simplicity • Stories which are simple and easy to understand are preffered over stories which go much more in depth. For example, cat stuck up a tree.
