I just viewed a YouTube video titled “NewsCRAFT: Clear, Relevant, Accurate, Fair, Timely” in which the basics of news writing are explained. This video was helpful for me because it reinforced all of the principles that I have learned about journalism this semester. The section about phrasing was a great reminder that I needed because I have been experiencing difficulty with writing concise and eye-catching headlines. I need to pay more attention to how I can condense long phrases with weak verbs into single, strong verbs. It was also interesting to learn about some of the history of journalism. Overall, this video was a great recap of what I just read in Elements of Journalism by Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel.
