Print media has less and less space for fluff news.
Understand exactly who you wish to reach out
to, and why what you’re pitching would be of
interest to their readers. Just because you may
think it’s important news, doesn’t mean it is
for a mass audience – that’s why we have
social media. So, is it a better post for
Facebook, or a legitimate news story for
