How to define stories. How to define news.

It's not yet crystal clear what the differences are
between stories and news.

Improved definitions are needed for stories and news
that distinguish what are stories and what are news better.

A proper definition of a term would not
use that same term in its definition.

1. What exactly are the features of stories versus the
   features of news?...

2. What are some of the things to consider in choosing
   one or the other?...

3. How would they be combined?...

4. Who are experts that could elaborate on stories and
   news ambiguities more precisely?...

Cheers! and kind regards,
