The first breaking news story I found for the News Cycle assignment was from the Chicago Tribune. The story was very short and definitely a very rough draft because of its short length and a few errors, such as the repetition of "said." This is understandable, though, because quotes from witnesses or officials are the only sources of information obtainable at this moment. The "quotes" weren't even actual quotes because they were just stated by the reporter without quotation marks. I think this story will be ongoing since the victim hasn't been fully described and an autopsy awaits. Also, the suspected criminal has not been identified.
The second breaking news story I selected was from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, my local newspaper. This story involves two men getting arrested for informing others on Twitter about their G-20 protest. It's written pretty well, with few errors. This story is newsworthy because it seems uncommon for people to get arrested for something they post on their Facebook or Twitter page. I could see if it were a bomb threat or something, but this story just seems a bit uncommon. It's also newsworthy because it affects everyone. Many people have Facebook or Twitter pages and post opinions, thoughts, etc. everyday.
I found another article today about the G-20 protest (however, this article is also from yesterday, October 5, and from the TV news station KDKA) that states "more charges could be forthcoming." This shows that the story probably will be ongoing.
