A very, very clunky attempt at news management
Who defines what is newsworthy? In these parts, editors for traditional media, and readers / viewers for disintermediated media. Not, however, in the 'People's Republic' of
China Daily has this quadruple take of a headline: "Top 10 Olympic News Stories unveiled".
These include such reader magnets as "Supportive structures of the National Stadium removed successfully", the rather alarming "Over 240,000 Beijingers apply for volunteers" (sic), and "Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games Mascot Fu Niu Lele unveiled" (FNL looks like a rather able bodied cow to me, for what that's worth). However, number one with a bullet (which is what Chinese newspaper editors must be striving to avoid) is "Chinese government attaches great importance to Olympic preparation".
Perhaps readers would like to add their own Olympic news stories....
