One thought on “Who writes this stuff?

  • “Who writes this stuff?”
    – The National Associations of Estate Agents (NAEA), as it says in the article.

    1. An entity ( here the NAEA ) publish a press release.
    2. A Journalist at a news wire writes an article ( or just copies the press release ) ( in this case The Press Association )
    3. Someone ( usually a ‘journalist’ ) republishes this in their news feed OR writes their own piece by taking: whatever information they want from this and other wire articles; their own opinions; and those of their employer and their target readership ( in this case the Belfast Telegraph ).
