Different Style of writing

The reading of chapter 9 involved small details. After reading the chapter, it seems to me that journalism is also like being a detective. The example that the text gave of Jules Loh finding something wrong with Herbert Hoover's pencils really showed how journalists must pay attentions to all of the information about their story. That one little point opened a whole new angle of a story.

Another section of the text was interesting to me. Involving color in a news story isn't as easy as it seems. It read, "Color implies a way of seeing a story so you can show the reader. Adjectives and intensifiers have nothing to do with it-they are, in fact, great decievers." This shows taht newswriting is more of a challenge than other types of writing. Readers need to make their own reactions to the stories with out writers telling them what to think.
