QUESTION: Should news organizations be forced to hand over evidence of illegal activities, like riots or terrorist acts, to the police? Why/Why not?
Noteworthy story: This week we’re looking at the structure of a news story. Find a news story that is an example of the "inverted pyramid" structure, meaning the first sentence or two includes who, what, where, when and some times why. The remaining details are ordered from most important to least important. The story should also be written in the third person, past tense and contain quotes.
For example, if you chose this story.
Kyle Rittenhouse found not guilty on all counts in trial over Kenosha shootings
Rittenhouse claimed self-defence in deadly shooting that became flashpoint in U.S.

Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges Friday after pleading self-defence in the deadly Kenosha, Wis., shootings that became a flashpoint in the nation’s debate over guns, vigilantism and racial injustice.
Rittenhouse, 18, began to choke up, fell forward toward the defence table and then hugged one of his attorneys as he heard a court clerk recite "not guilty" five times. A sheriff’s deputy immediately whisked him out a back door.
"He wants to get on with his life," defence attorney Mark Richards said. "He has a huge sense of relief for what the jury did to him today. He wishes none of this ever happened. But as he said when he testified, he did not start this."
As usual, I want you to note the story’s headline, byline and URL, but instead of telling me why the story is noteworthy, I want you to tell me the five Ws and in what paragraph you see the first quote.
For the Kyle Rittenhouse story, for example, you would write:
WHO: Kyle Rittenhouse
WHAT: Acquitted on all charges
WHERE: Kenosha, Wisconsin
WHY: Flashpoint in debate
Quote: Third paragraph
Not all news stories have all five Ws in the first paragraph, which is fine. Still, list them. Also, why can refer to why this matters, the significance of this story.
