When you hear the word “news,” what comes to mind? Most likely, you think of the latest headlines on the front page of your newspaper or your favorite online news outlet. But what actually happens when you read a news story?
To understand how news works, you need to first understand how newspapers are printed. When a news story is submitted to a newspaper, the journalist takes all the necessary steps to make the story as accurate as possible. The journalist interviews sources and gathers evidence to support their claims. Once the journalist is satisfied with the story, they submit it to the newspaper’s editors.
The editors then decide whether or not to publish the story. If the editors agree with the journalist’s findings, they’ll add it to the newspaper’s homepage. If the editors don’t agree with the journalist’s findings, they’ll either reject the story or publish it with a different title.
Once the story is published, it’s available to be read by the public. Anyone can access the story by going to the newspaper’s website or by searching for the story on Google or other online search engines.
So how do the latest headlines on the front page of your newspaper get there? That’s actually a pretty complicated story.
