Transcript of Different Types of Newspaper articles

The Newspaper Before writing a newspaper article, you must
have a good understanding of the different types
of articles contained in a newspaper. Most news articles are news stories and focus only on facts. Editorials and columns are not considered real news stories and usually reflect the opinion of the writier. Here are the different types.... The Local News The local news articles focus on what is going
on in your neightbourhood. An example of a
local news story would be an article on a city
council meeting or a community event, like a
fundraiser at your community center. The National News Article This type of article focuses on what is
happening in the country. An example of a
national news article would be about something that is happening in Canada, for example, there is going to be a tax increase for all the provinces. The International News Article This type of article focuses on news that is happening
outside of the country. A story of the Libyan protest or
an influenza outbreak in China would be considered an
international news story. A Feature Article A feature article is known as "softer" news.
This type of article may be a profile of a
person who does a lot of volunteer work
in the community or even a movie preview.
These types of articles are not considered news
stories. The Editoral This the kind of article that contains the writer's opinion.
