Resumé

Storytelling is at the core of journalism practice. It is the key for communicating with the audience and it exerts a heavy influence over how news is perceived in the public sphere. The idea of ‘just the facts’ journalism is a caricature – and an inaccurate one at that – as the type of news that circulates, that breeds discussion and reaction, that is both remarkable and memorable, is based around conveying a narrative that generates meaning. In this respect, one could call journalism an industry of narrative.
