Charles A. Dana once defined news
inthisway: "If you see a dog
biting a man, don't write it up.
But if you see a man biting a dog,
spare no pains or money to get the
details to the Sun office." This is
a poor paraphrase of a good story.
when "Doc" Wood was night edi
tor of the Sun a young reporter
asked him "what constitutes
news!" Mr. Wood considered
for a moment and then replied :
"Here's an illustration which will
probably give a correct idea of
what I think of that subject. If
you should Bee a dog running down
Broadway with a tin can tied to
his tail, it isn't worth a line.
But if you should see a dog with a
tin can tied to his tail walking down
Broadway, it's worth a column."
