What Is Newsworthy?

Review the following pairs of news stories — and choose the one from each pair that you think is more newsworthy by clicking on it. After making your selection, you'll be asked to briefly explain your choice.

Don't worry. There's no absolute right or wrong answer. Once you make your selection, Paul will explain which one he would have chosen and why, so you can better understand how a veteran journalist might make the same decision. Please note that in this activity, your selections are final and cannot be changed.
