After studying the assigned reading 21st Century Communication: A Reference Handbook: Chapter 65: The Changing Nature of “News” considering the concepts of timeliness, proximity, unusualness, prominence, impact, conflict and human interest, provide a current example of a compelling news story. Answer the following questions or prompts:
A) Why is it compelling? Which of the concepts does it exemplify?
B) In general, how have these concepts been challenged by the advent of immediacy in news release?
The response should be in 12pt type, at least 1-1.5 pages in length, double-spaced. I suggest that you make sure that you have information on the second page to be safe and avoid loss of points.
Support your responses with research from the Learning Resources. Use APA in-text citations where necessary, and cite any outside sources that you use. Class reading resources should be a primary source, but you are welcome to use outside resources too. Create an APA Bibliography/ Reference Sheet at the end of your document.
Submit your response in the file submission area for this assignment. Add an APA formatted title page and a reference sheet. If you choose to “add a file” by attaching a MSWord document, please also copy and paste your response into the comments area.
