Thoughts on news, feature and editorial writing

There are three different types of journalistic writing which are news, feature and editorial writing. News has timeliness and presents factual information. It has no opinion included or conclusions. Feature also presents factual information and can be with ir witrh out timeliness. Feature from what i have learned focuses on people and activities of intrest, not always to specific events. Last but not least editorial writing dies have timeliness; it is lso very opinionated even though it is factual. News would normally be used to explain drastic current events or just factual things to keep people up to date. Feature would normally be used as a bibliography of your self or a biography of someone else. Editorial writing would most likely be founded in magazines. One positive aspect of news is that it is lways factual, on the other hand one negative thing about that is it has no feeling.Something positive about feature is it explains the person thourghly the negative thing is you might find out something you didnt want to know about that someone or something. Editorial can be negative because it is very opinionated andyou might not like what it says. On the other hand it can be positive because if you like the story they are favoring, you would agree.
