Helpful word definitions for CNN/MSM Editors: "Newsworthy"

Last Thurs­day morn­ing, I was plan­ning to go cover the G8 Sum­mit at Camp David. Instead, I saw Aaron Worthing’s story, imme­di­ately rec­og­nized it as news­wor­thy and … well, God’s got a great sense of humor, doesn’t he?

In my effort to improve jour­nal­ism in the United states in gen­eral and on CNN in par­tic­u­lar let me offer this tid­bit of info for the edi­tors CNN via the Mer­riam Web­ster online Dic­tio­nary:

Def­i­n­i­tion of news­wor­thy

: inter­est­ing enough to the gen­eral pub­lic to war­rant reporting

And in the inter­est in set­ting an exam­ple of using more than one source for a story, here is the def­i­n­i­tion from Dic​tio​nary​.com

  1. of suf­fi­cient inter­est to the pub­lic or a spe­cial audi­ence to war­rant press atten­tion or cov­er­age.

Now let’s use “news­wor­thy” in a sentence:

CNN’s mis­re­port­ing of the date of an email to the Trump cam­paign in order to make it appear that that they were being offered doc­u­ments from Wik­ileaks before they were released pub­licly and pro­mot­ing this false nar­ra­tive for hours on the air is a very news­wor­thy story.

I hope that this will be of use to the edi­tors of CNN as an extra bonus tomor­row morn­ing at DaT­e­chGuy blog we will give an exam­ple of a news­wor­thy story that nei­ther CNN nor the national press both­ered to cover.


If you’d like to sup­port inde­pen­dent jour­nal­ists who, unlike the folks at CNN, know what the def­i­n­i­tion of “News­wor­thy” with­out being told please con­sider hit­ting DaTipJar

In my effort to improve journalism in the United states in general and on CNN in particular let me offer this tidbit of info for the editors CNN via the Merriam Webster online Dictionary:

Definition of newsworthy

interesting enough to the general public to warrant reporting

And in the interest in setting an example of using more than one source for a story, here is the definition from Dictionary.com

  1. of sufficient interest to the public or a special audience to warrant press attention or coverage.

Now let’s use “newsworthy” in a sentence:

CNN’s misreporting of the date of an email to the Trump campaign in order to make it appear that that they were being offered documents from Wikileaks before they were released publicly and promoting this false narrative for hours on the air is a very newsworthy story.

I hope that this will be of use to the editors of CNN  as an extra bonus tomorrow morning at DaTechGuy blog we will give an example of a newsworthy story that neither CNN nor the national press bothered to cover.
