Untitled[edit]

In working on this entry, I deleted nothing that was already there and added on to make it more complete. I'm sure more needs to be added, but I mainly wanted to include information on feature articles, since it already had material on news articles. I also played with formatting. I hope it is easier to read. Mazeface 21:15, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

It's hard to tell, but I believe you have deleted some things. Could you recheck?
Also, I believe your {{cite book}} is not being used correctly. Could you check the formatting?
Finally, it would probably be better to put a {{inuse}} in the article to reflect that you're actively editing it.

I wrote this before I saw the invitation.  :) I'll look at it more closely, if I have the time. — Arthur Rubin | (talk) 21:27, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Got the {{cite book}} templates fixed. Look closely at the diffs to see what I did (please ignore the incorrect intermmediate versions). — Arthur Rubin | (talk) 21:58, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Does an article have to be a section of a larger written work or could it be complete in its own right?

Leads versus introduction[edit]

Am I not correct in saying that an article doesn't always have a lead, but it nearly always has an introduction; is it not the case that a lead is a particular sort of introduction that is restricted to a few sentences or a paragraph in length?- (User) WolfKeeper (Talk) 20:42, 8 February 2008 (UTA news article is an article published in a print or Internet news medium such as a newspaper, newsletter, news magazine, news-oriented website, or article directory that discusses current or recent news of either general interest (i.e. daily newspapers) or on a specific topic (i.e. political or trade news magazines, club newsletters, or technology news websites).

A news article can include accounts of eye witnesses to the happening event. It can contain photographs, accounts, statistics, graphs, recollections, interviews, polls, debates on the topic, etc. Headlines can be used to focus the reader’s attention on a particular (or main) part of the article. The writer can also give facts and detailed information following answers to general questions like who, what, when, where, why and how.

Quoted references can also be helpful. References to people can also be made through written accounts of interviews and debates confirming the factuality of the writer’s information and the reliability of his source. The writer can use redirection to ensure that the reader keeps reading the article and to draw her attention to other articles. For example, phrases like "Continued on page 3” redirect the reader to a page where the article is continued.

While a good conclusion is an important ingredient for newspaper articles, the immediacy of a deadline environment means that copy editing often takes the form of deleting everything past an arbitrary point in the story corresponding to the dictates of available space on a page. Therefore, newspaper reporters are trained to write in inverted pyramid style, with all the most important information in the first paragraph or two. If less vital details are pushed towards the end of the story, the potentially destructive impact of draconian copy editing will be minimized.
