How to Make Good News


What makes News interesting? For me, it is information that is made available to the public and current events that I might not have otherwise discovered. It’s also about stories that make me go “Gee Whiz” when I read them. And, it should make me feel surprised or happy in some way. News that makes me feel these things is good news. Unfortunately, our current news sources have a much bigger agenda than the news itself. In this article, I will share my tips for making good news.

Information that is made available to the public

Public information is information recorded in any form, including electronic media such as e-mails, printouts, microfilms, and magnetic tapes. It must have been created, received, or maintained by a governmental body employee. This information must relate to the body’s official business. This definition also covers communications in any form, including electronic communications. Here are some common examples of public information:

Current events

There are many different ways to keep up with current events in the news. If you are a teacher, one of the easiest ways to keep up with the latest news is to subscribe to a news website. These sites are credible and provide diverse viewpoints on current events. They have different levels of coverage and are adjusted to be easy for students to understand. They are also less biased than most other news websites, and they have reporting and editing features that dig deeper into topics.

Stories that make a reader say, ‘Gee Whiz’

“Gee Whiz,” I hear you ask. Well, this isn’t entirely new. Gee-whiz dictionaries aren’t new. “Zounds” is a clean way to say “God’s wounds,” while “gadzooks” refers to the nails on the cross. And the AJC’s front page recently featured the story of Diana’s defeat to Fantasia. The terrorists are planning an attack on the U.S. soon, Merriam-Webster notes.

Stories that set an organisation’s own agenda

When an organization is trying to convince people to buy into its strategy, storytelling is a critical skill. When told well, stories can connect an organisation to its audience on an emotional level. The emotional bond between the organization and its audience is crucial to the effectiveness of storytelling. Despite the fact that stories are often interpreted as myths or legends, they are actually arguments for a vision of the future. They make sense because the beginning, middle, and end of a story are necessarily in sequence and logically linked.

The analysis tree helps executives develop storytelling flexibility. There is no one strategic story that suits all stakeholders. For instance, a five-minute session with the chief executive officer might focus on high-level issues, while a five-minute session with management that knows little about the health-care industry may focus on the finer details. By using an analysis tree, managers are able to choose which story elements will work best with the audiences they are trying to reach.
