class 4/20

      Yesterday in class we began class with coming p with our own deefinitions of what we though news was. We then broke off into groups and compared definitions. Afterwards we discussed the importance of a good news release. A news release is a story you write with the hope of having it published in the mass media. It is usually done in the inverted pyramid style. Inverted Pyramid style is when you write the story with the most important part of it in the beginning and then write in descending order of importance. This is important because most people will determine after the first few lines if they want to continue reading the story. A good news release can be very helpful if done correctly. It can be used to promote a new product that is about to be launched. We are actually writing news releases this week in my intor to journalism class so it has been helpful to have both classes going over them at the same time.
