Does the News have an Expiry Date?

Have you ever wondered how stories in the news gain a certain traction, go through a whirlwind of media coverage, only to slowly trickle down in the end? This week, we explore how journalists determine the "newsworthiness" of a story, and the life cycle it goes through before it eventually expires.

Here are the segments of the episode:

1:16 - Asia Calling 1 - Persons of interest go missing in Thailand

9:04 - Asia Calling 2 - India tries to reduce its air pollution levels

16:01 - Does News have an Expiry Date?

This episode was produced by Sharyl Kaur and Muhammad Haniff Baharudin.
