Today we took the test over newswriting.

Afterwards we discussed how news websites work in today’s journalism landscape. We came up with the following list of things you can expect to see on a news media website:

  • Current news.
  • Shorter writing
  • Comments/feedback/reader engagement
  • Archives
  • Accessibility
  • Infinite space
  • More stories
  • More pictures
  • Videos
  • Data for the content producers (how many people are looking at a particular story.)

We then looked at some examples of news website home pages. Tomorrow we will talk about photojournalism.
