"News" is a piece of written prose used in newspapers and magazines to spread information about events. The term is also used for coverage in oral/visual media such as Radio, Film and TV. "News" posted in the Poiesipedia space can be either totally (events, places, subjects, etc.) or partially (just one of the elements) fantastic. Readers are advised to apply a healthy ratio of "suspension of belief" on reported facts that appears to be close to reality - whatever reality might be. Authors wishing to use this genre for satirical purposes must avoid straight denigration and bad taste. They should just keep in mind that the most powerful pieces of satire were often written in a way that let everybody get the message without providing any angle for prosecuting the authors even in the context of total censorship and authoritarian regimes.
