What's Your Question?
How to Read Newspaper Articles Online
Nowadays, many people prefer to get their news online. But with so much information available online, it’s more important than ever to get your news from reputable sources. For some people, that means relying on traditional newspaper outlets. Luckily, plenty of newspapers offer content online. Here’s how to access it.
The New York Times Newspaper
If you want to access The New York Times newspaper online, the good news is that you have a monthly allotment of free articles. However, if you’re a consistent reader, you should look into its subscription options. These include the “Basic Subscription,” which offers unlimited access to articles on any of your devices. You can also opt to add the “Cooking Subscription” or the digital access plus print subscription.
The website is laid out very intuitively, with the home page acting much like the front page of the paper. You can access content online and also through its app.
The Los Angeles Times Newspaper
The Los Angeles Times newspaper offers users three free articles per month on its site. After that, you must sign up for one of its subscriptions. The subscription is billed monthly and gives you unlimited access to all of the content. There are also other bonuses to signing up for a digital subscription, like receiving the Daily eNewspaper, which is just like the print paper but online, plus the chance to add home delivery options. And if you already pay for a regular paper delivery, digital access is included.
The Sunday Times Newspaper
The Sunday Times and The Times offer subscription-based access to online content. One subscription covers both papers, plus access to video content, crosswords and everything in the archive spanning 200 years.
The Seattle Times Newspaper
Reading The Seattle Times newspaper online requires a subscription that is billed weekly. There are several options available, including unlimited digital access. It also offers a package that gives you online access plus physical delivery of just the Sunday paper. That’s a bonus for coupon lovers. Others can opt for a digital and seven-day paper delivery subscription. The digital access includes a copy of the daily paper’s “Print Replica,” which mimics the paper copy.
Free Newspaper Articles Online
If you’re looking for free newspaper articles online, the best way to start is by doing a search on Google News for your keyword. If you gather your news from various sources, the free quota of articles may be enough to help keep yourself informed throughout the month. Some sites offer completely free articles, which are often local newspapers or sites like The Telegraph and The Guardian .

“ There is no denying that [journalism] does not only inform people but also helps people shape opinions regarding various socio-political scenarios. ” A Research Guide for Students
Depending on the publication a newspaper article will be written about local, national or international current affairs/events.
Introduction to Newspaper Articles
There are many types of newspapers, from school/university publications to large news outlets like the Daily Mail, or Guardian. Local papers will focus more on events in and around the community, for example they may cover community fates or markets. They’ll also have stories about local people. They will still be written in a professional and formal way but may have a more conversational tone.
Unlike local papers, national publications will focus more on events that effect the wider populous. They will also report on noteworthy international events, such as crises and wars, but also sporting and entertainment events like the Olympics. They advertise to a much wider audience than local papers and need to relate to most of the population.
Purpose of a Newspaper Article
News articles are written to inform and educate readers on current affairs/events. They are used to provide readers with information they need/want to know about the world around them. You will either be told what to write your article on or have a choice of topics related to the module this assessment is for.
Newspaper articles give as much information as possible at the time of publication; if a journalist writes about an ongoing case there may be limited information available, so they might interview people related to the case, or try find background information to help inform readers more.
News articles are written on a whole range of topics due to the large target audiences of newspapers. Most papers will have several sections ranging from current national and international affairs to sports and celebrity news. There are some papers, however which solely focus on a specific topic, therefore have a smaller target audience.
Be sure of your topic and potential target audience.
Example: there are sporting papers which mainly report on sporting events and news. Whereas some others focus on business and economic current affairs.
The Reliability Spectrum
Normally when writing a public communication piece you want to be looking at examples to get a feel for their tone. However, with newspapers there is also a need to think about the range of reliability that they represent.
If you are writing to inform, aim for your work to be on the objective end of the spectrum where you stay impartial, leaving personal opinions out of your work. Whereas, if you are writing to persuade or analyse consider moving down the spectrum. Here we find the likes of Letters to the Editor and Opinion Pieces ; work that is critical and has more focus on the writer's opinions.
When writing any form of article ensure that you are not creating fake news (false or misleading information presented as news). Use reliable sources and cite all references to keep your work credible, think of this as any other assessment. You will lose marks for not using and citing references correctly. Use our Referencing Guide to ensure you use the correct referencing system.
The reliability spectrum can be highly influenced by politics and the political view points of journalists, editors and sometimes owners of publications which will determine the tone of their articles. Your assessment brief will determine where your work sits on the spectrum, depending on whether you've been asked to inform, educate or persuade.
Example: If you've been asked to persuade you may state your opinion, but ensure these are informed opinions that are backed up.
Newspapers vs Magazines
There are many similarities between magazine and newspaper articles, therefore you need to know how to differentiate between the two. This will ensure you write an authentic newspaper article.
These are the differences and similarities between newspaper and magazine articles.
Newspaper articles will:
Inform and educate readers about current events whilst being unbiased.
Be written using formal and professional language (local papers can be conversational).
Have a single subheading/kicker paragraph at the beginning.
Use little visual illustrations. They may use one or two images related to the story.
Have a wider audience, unless they are on niche topics (sports, business).
Magazine and newspaper articles will:
Be timely and about current events.
Have a similar structure (columned, kicker paragraphs and quotes).
Start with important information to grip readers making them more likely to continue reading.
Use supporting evidence and references to help make your writing credible.
Use sensitive and purposeful language. Our Language section has guidance on the use of language in public communications.
Structure of a Newspaper Article
The inverted pyramid structure (see right) is used by journalists to write effective articles. You want to give your readers as much information as possible whilst also keeping their attention. Follow this structure as well as the anatomy below to write a successful newspaper article.
The Anatomy of a Newspaper Article
A gripping title that will entice readers. Can use alliteration for emphasis and effect.
Your (the author’s) name and the date of publication/it is submitted.
Like a kicker paragraph this will further entice the readers, as well as giving some insight into the story.
News Writing Inverted Pyramid
In your first paragraph or two you want to give the most important information (who, what, when, where, why, how?). You are constantly wanting to entice your readers to continue reading.
Body of text
After you’ve summarised the main points of the article the rest of your text is for any further information which will be in order of importance. Here you will also want to include any supporting evidence and references, quotations and/or statements from people relevant to the story.
Images and visuals
Usually there will be little images in a newspaper article. There will be a large image supporting the headline and then maybe one or two others that are relevant to the text.
This will round off the article nicely either with a conclusion, quote or statement. You could use a circular structure , therefore relating back to the original point of the article.
Video: a visual representation of what to include in and how to structure a newspaper article.
An online article differs from a printed one in design. Ask your lecturer how they want you to design it, if it’s an online article it will be a single column whereas one for print will be several columns.
Do write in a professional and formal manner.
Do be timely and write about current events/affairs.
Do provide supporting evidence from reliable sources linked to the story.
Do use the correct structure for your article and the publication style (online, in print).
Don't use slang and colloquialisms unless they are in quotes.
Don't write about irrelevant topics that are no longer an interest to readers.
Don't submit an article without references, this will make your work less credible.
Don't format your article incorrectly. Make sure it is suited for the publication/assessment brief.

Article Types: What's the Difference Between Newspapers, Magazines, and Journals?
What Does it Mean?
- Choosing What's Best
- Journal Articles
- Magazine Articles
- Trade Magazine/Journal Articles
- Newspaper Articles
- Newsletter Articles
Article : Much shorter than a book, an article can be as short as a paragraph or two or as long as several dozen pages. Articles can address any topic that the author decides to explore and can reflect opinion, news, research, reviews, instruction, nearly any focus. Articles appear in newspapers, magazines, trade publication, journals, and even in books. Because of their relative brevity, articles typically are used to provide up-to-date information on a wide variety of topics.
Book Review : A usually brief article that provides an evaluation and appreciation of a book. A review might assess the importance of a book's contributions to a particular field of study or might make recommendations to potential readers of the book. Reviews of fiction will usually comment on originality, style, and readability. While an important tool for helping a researcher assess the value of a book to his or her research topic, a book review, by itself, is usually not sufficient for use as a source in a research project.
Issue : A single, regular publication of a journal, magazine, newspaper, newsletter, or trade publication. A magazine or journal that publishes monthly will have twelve issues in a year. News magazines like Time and Newsweek publish weekly and will have 52 issues in a year. Newspapers might publish daily or weekly. A daily will have 365 issues in a year. Issues are usually numbered, so a journal that publishes twelve issues in a year starting with January will number each issue sequentially (issue 1, January; issue 2, February; issue 3, March; etc.).
Journal : A regularly published collection of articles that focus on topics specific to a particular academic discipline or profession. Journals might be published monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or even annually. Probably the most common publication frequency is monthly and quarterly. Journal articles are typically of substantial length (often more than 10 pages) and usually reflect research, whether it be surveys of existing research or discussions of original research. Most journal articles will be prefaced with an abstract and will include extensive documentation within the article or at the end of the article. Most research begins with a survey of existing literature on a topic and proceeds with the development of new ideas or new research into a topic. Articles are usually written by experts in their fields, although journals might also publish letters from their readership commenting on articles that have been published in previous issues. Journals might also include opinion articles or editorials. Examples of journals include Journal of the American Medical Association, American Sociological Review, Psychological Reports, Publications of the Modern Language Association, Educational Research Quarterly, and Evolutionary Biology.
Literature Review : An important part of nearly any research project, a literature review consists of a survey of previously published or non-published materials that focus on a particular subject under investigation. For example, a researcher looking into whether there is a relationship between musical aptitude and academic achievement in elementary age students would begin by looking for articles, books, and other materials that reflected previous research into this topic. The function of the review is to identify what is already known about the topic and to provide a knowledge foundation for the current study.
Magazine : A regularly published collection of articles that might focus on any topic in general or on topics of interest to a specific group, such as sports fans or music fans or home decorators. Magazines might be published weekly, monthly, semi-monthly or only several times a year. More commonly, magazines are published weekly or monthly. Articles in magazines are typically written for the general reading public and don't reflect in-depth research (an exception might be an investigative report written in a news magazine that involved weeks or months of research and interviews to complete). Most magazine articles do not list references and are written by the magazine's own staff writers. In general, magazine articles are easy to read, are fairly brief in length, and may include illustrations or photographs. Magazines also rely heavily on advertisements targeted to consumers as a source of revenue. Examples of magazines include Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Popular Mechanics, Car and Driver, Interview, Good Housekeeping, Elle, GQ, and Sports Illustrated.
Newsletter : A regularly published collection of brief news articles of interest to members of a particular community. Professional associations might issue newsletters to keep their membership up to date. Businesses and schools might issue newsletters to keep their constituents up to date. Nearly any type of organization or society might have its own newsletter. Articles in newsletters are typically brief, and the entire newsletter itself might be only half a dozen pages in length. These are usually internal publications that have interest mainly to people who participate in the activities of the issuing body. They are frequently used to inform members of an organization of upcoming events. Examples of newsletters include 401(k) Advisor, Adult Day Services Letter, Black History News & Notes, Credit Card Weekly, Education Business Weekly, Music Critics Association Newsletter, and Student Aid News.
Newspaper : A regularly published collection of fairly brief articles that provide updates on current events and interests. Newspapers are generally published daily, weekly, and bi-weekly, although they may have less regular publication schedules. Most major newspapers publish daily, with expanded coverage on the weekends. Newspapers can be national or international in focus or might be targeted strictly to a particular community or locality. Newspaper articles are written largely by newspaper staff and editors and often do not provide authors' names. Many of the articles appearing in national, international, and regional papers are written by various wire service writers and are nationally or internationally syndicated. Examples of wire services are Reuters and the Associated Press. Newspapers rely on advertising for a part of their income and might also include photographs and even full color illustrations of photos. A common feature of most newspapers is its editorial page, where the editors express opinions on timely topics and invite their readers to submit their opinions. Examples of newspapers include New York Times, Times of London, Florida Times-Union, Tampa Tribune, Denver Post, Guardian, and USA Today.
Peer Reviewed/Refereed Journal : Most academic/scholarly journals use subject experts or "peers" to review articles being considered for publication. Reviewers will carefully examine articles to ensure that they meet journal criteria for subject matter and style. The process ensures that articles are appropriate to a particular journal and that they are of the highest quality.
Trade Journal : A regularly published collection of articles that address topics of interest to members of a particular profession, such as law enforcement or advertising or banking. Articles tend to be brief and often report on developments and news within a field and might summarize current research being done in a particular area. Trade journals might also include editorials, letters to the editor, photo essays, and advertisements that target members of the profession. While trade journal articles might include references, the reference lists tend to be brief and don't reflect thorough reviews of the literature. Articles are usually written with the particular profession in mind, but are generally pretty accessible so that a person wishing to learn more about the profession would still be able to understand the articles. Examples of trade journals include Police Chief, Education Digest, Energy Weekly News, Aviation Week and Space Technology, Engineering News Record, Design News, and Traffic World.
Volume : Most journals and many magazines, newsletters, newspapers, and trade publications assign volume numbers to a year's worth or half a year's worth of issues. For example, a journal that publishes four times a year (quarterly) might assign each yearly collection of four issues a volume number to help identify which issues of the journal were published during a particular year. Publications that publish more frequently than monthly might also assign volume numbers, but they might change volume numbers mid year, so that there may be two volumes in any one publishing year.

Why Use Newspapers?
Newspaper articles can provide a useful source of information, serving as a primary source of information about historical and current events. Some of the benefits of using newspaper articles as primary sources include:
- Seeing how people viewed an event when it happened;
- Providing multiple points of view about an issue, including a comparison of the United States and international views;
- Permitting researchers to trace the historical development of subjects over time;
- Examining issues in the context of their time (by seeing how stories about an issue relate to other stories, or by examining the type of coverage provided);
- Giving a snapshot of a time period detailing how people lived, and what they purchased which is helpful for writers, playwrights, historians, etc.
Because newspapers also contain commentaries or retrospective articles about events, they can also serve as a secondary source .
Whether used as a primary or a secondary source, newspapers can provide a valuable research tool.

How to Write a News Article
News articles report on current events that are relevant to the readership of a publication. These current events might take place locally, nationally, or internationally.
News writing is a skill that’s used worldwide, but this writing format—with its unique rules and structure—differs from other forms of writing . Understanding how to write a news story correctly can ensure you’re performing your journalistic duty to your audience.
Give your writing extra polish Grammarly helps you communicate confidently Write with Grammarly
What is a news article?
A news article is a writing format that provides concise and factual information to a reader. News stories typically report on current affairs that are noteworthy—including legislation, announcements, education, discoveries or research, election results, public health, sports, and the arts.
Unlike blog and opinion posts, a strong news article doesn’t include personal opinion, speculation, or bias. Additionally, the diction and syntax should be accessible to any reader, even if they’re not deeply familiar with the topic. News stories, therefore, don’t contain jargon that you might find in a research paper or essay.
What are the rules for writing a news article?
Whether you’re learning how to write a short news story for a school assignment or want to showcase a variety of clips in your writing portfolio , the rules of news writing hold true.
There are three types of news articles:
- Local: reports on current events of a specific area or community. For example, “College Football Team Welcomes Legendary NFL Coach” or “School District Announces New Grading Policy.”
- National: reports on current affairs within a particular country. For example, “NASA’s James Webb Telescope Captures Surreal Images of the Cosmos.”
- International: reports on social issues or current affairs of one or more countries abroad. For example, “UK’s Record Heat Wave Expected to Continue Next Week.”
Regardless of the type of news article you’re writing, it should always include the facts of the story, a catchy but informative headline, a summary of events in paragraph form, and interview quotes from expert sources or of public sentiment about the event. News stories are typically written from a third-person point of view while avoiding opinion, speculation, or an informal tone.
How is a news article structured?
While many news stories are concise and straightforward, long-form or deeply investigated pieces may comprise thousands of words. On the shorter side, news articles can be about 500 words.
When it comes to how to structure a news article, use an inverted pyramid. Organizing your content this way allows you to thoughtfully structure paragraphs :
- Begin with the most important and timely information
- Follow those facts with supporting details
- Conclude with some less important—but relevant—details, interview quotes, and a summary
The first paragraph of a news article should begin with a topic sentence that concisely describes the main point of the story. Placing this sentence at the beginning of a news article hooks the reader immediately so the lede isn’t buried.
At a traditional newspaper, this practice is described as “writing above the fold,” which alludes to the biggest, most pressing news being visible at the top of a folded newspaper.
How to write a news article
There are a handful of steps to practice when writing a news story. Here’s how to approach it.
1 Gathering information
Source the five Ws about your news topic: who, what, where, when, and why. Lock down a keen understanding of the timeline of events so you can correctly summarize the incident or news to your reader. The key is to position yourself as a credible and reliable source of information by doing your due diligence as a fact gatherer.
2 Interviewing subjects
Consider who you want to interview for the new article. For example, you might choose to interview primary sources , such as a person who is directly involved in the story.
Alternatively, secondary sources might offer your readers insight from people close to or affected by the topic who have unique perspectives. This might be an expert who can offer technical commentary or analysis, or an everyday person who can share an anecdote about how the topic affected them.
When interviewing sources, always disclose that you’re a reporter and the topic that you’re writing on.
Draft an outline for your news article, keeping the inverted-pyramid structure in mind. Consider your potential readership and publication to ensure that your writing meets the audience’s expectations in terms of complexity.
For example, if this news article is for a general news publication, your readership might include a wider audience compared to a news article for a specialized publication or community.
Brainstorm a snappy headline that concisely informs readers of the news topic while seizing their interest. Gather the most important points from your research and pool them into their respective pyramid “buckets.” These buckets should be based on their order of importance.
Get to writing! The paragraphs in a news article should be short, to the point, and written in a formal tone. Make sure that any statements or opinions are attributed to a credible source that you’ve vetted.
Reread your first draft aloud. In addition to looking for obvious typos or grammar mistakes , listen for awkward transitions and jarring tense or perspective shifts. Also, consider whether your first draft successfully conveys the purpose of your news story.
Rework your writing as needed and repeat this step. Don’t forget to proofread your work.
Strong news stories are built on facts. If any statement or information is shaky or unsupported, the entire work is compromised. Before publishing a news article, double-check that all the information you’ve gathered from the beginning is accurate, and validate the information that your interview sources provided, too.
How to write a news article FAQs
What is a news article .
A news article informs readers within a community of current events that are relevant to them. It typically revolves around a topic of interest within a publication’s readership, whether the information is about local, national, or international events.
News articles are structured like an inverted pyramid. The most important or crucial information is always presented to the reader up front, followed by additional story details. A news article concludes with less important supporting information or a summation of the reporting.
The general rules for writing a news article involve accuracy and integrity. Report on the details of a story in a factual, unbiased, and straightforward way. When writing a news article, do not editorialize or sensationalize the information, and keep your content free of your opinion.
