The Slice

You be the editor

When considering the decision to dominate the front page with sports news, what factor would help you make up your mind?

A) Your certainty that the sports news in question is the most talked-about topic in your circulation area. B) Your hope that readers who have zero interest in sports will understand that we're talking about special circumstances. C) How compelling are the traditional news stories and photos available for that day's edition? D) Sticking to a rigid formula about what goes on A1 might have made sense in 1965, but this is 2015. E) When someone says "You're just trying to sell papers" you can calmly note that a vast majority of your readers are subscribers who get home delivery. F) You are proud of your staff's coverage of the sports event in question and want to showcase it. G) Other.
