Exercise

a) Compare the front pages of VG, Dagbladet and Aftenposten for a week, or use their net editions. What kinds of news make the front pages? Do they match with your list of what makes good news stories (see "Starting off" on page 204 of the textbook)? Do the three papers publish the same type of news on the front papges, or can you see any differences? Can you explain whatever differences there may be between the papers? Write a report where you answer these questions.

b) The same exercise may be done using the net edition of the British newspapers The Sun, The Times and the Daily Telegraph.

c) Check out the net edition of the American paper The New York Times. How would you describe that paper?
