But the funnel also resembles an accordion, for new stories can be added up to the last moment. The initial story lists are long because many suggested stories do not pan out.” <br />“Once all suggestions are in, they are winnowed to produce the first story list.”<br />Deciding what&apos;s news: a study of CBS evening news, NBC nightly news ... By Herbert J.

  11. 11. Primary and Secondary Sources <br />Historians use a wide variety of sources to answer questions about the past. In their research, history scholars use both primary sources and secondary sources. Primary sources are actual records that have survived from the past, such as letters, photographs, articles of clothing. Secondary sources are accounts of the past created by people writing about events sometime after they happened.<br />For example, your history textbook is a secondary source. Someone wrote most of your textbook long after historical events took place. Your textbook may also include some primary sources, such as direct quotes from people living in the past or excerpts from historical documents. <br />People living in the past left many clues about their lives. These clues include both primary and secondary sources in the form of books, personal papers, government documents, letters, oral accounts, diaries, maps, photographs, reports, novels and short stories, artifacts, coins, stamps, and many other things. Historians call all of these clues together the historical record.<br /><br />Primary –vs- Secondary Sources<br />
