Every type of structured news organization must have certain people responsible for determining what events merit coverage. In broadcast news, assignment editors play this role of evaluating the newsworthiness of stories. In recent years, some television news has come under fire for creating mediated realities. Television news editors must understand modern technology’s effect on certain stories and be aware of circumstances and subjects of the report. Television news assignment editors can make or break a newscast.
