We often see a newspaper¿s front page and wonder about the choices that were made to elevate a certain story above another. Why does Britney Spears end up on the cover and above-the-fold while news of local, national or international importance is buried inside? Why do newspaper editors choose the news that they do? In this book, Dr. Elaine Gale, a former journalist with a ten-year career in the newspaper business, dissects exactly why newspaper editors make the choices they do in assembling a daily newspaper. This book presents her findings from observing and recording over thirty newsroom meetings at a major metropolitan daily newspaper in the United States where top editors of the paper gathered together twice a day to discuss the next day¿s paper. The editors engaged in daily choices about what was newsworthy and what wasn¿t. Gale examines the themes that emerged in their decision-making as she listened to and transcribed the talk in the newsroom meetings. She shares both what goes through an editor¿s mind generally when planning the next day's paper, and also the specific recipe for cooking up the front page as revealed during the talk in the daily editors¿ meetings.
