They used to report news, these days they are told to provide an experience to the readers. Much like comparing a non fiction book to a novel. As in focus on entertain, and not the boring facts.

Serious news finally.

 

 

From the article: "Some residents of Flotilla Place recieved (sic) a note last week"
