In Chapter four, Cappon basically reinforces the number one pain of newswriting, saying that "Sentences come under special strains in news writing. A lot of facts have to be squeezed into a tight space..." This is absolutely true, and for myself, one of the most frustrating things about creating a legitimate news story. When you're given a maximum amount of space to work with, the facts come first, and the elaboration. It's not easy for a creative writer to arrange facts in the most straight-forward way. With a limited space and an abundance of facts to present to the reader, the news writer is left with almost no room to make the style of the story unique and interesting. Facts are coming first, and adjective's are suffering for it.
