He says the journalistic view is that (1) events are matched against (2) news criteria which, if satisﬁed, underpin (3) a news report which generates (4) news interest.

The point is that the person you are speaking to may not receive the message you intended to transmit. So, how can you tell? This is where feedback comes in. When two people are in conversation, the speaker is free to adjust his or her tone, speed, language, emphasis and so on, according to questions, nods, smiles and other responses from the listener. Indeed, if something is not understood, it can quickly be made clear. The source and receiver are in a constant feedback and adjustment loop.
