Having a strong lede at the start of a story is huge, it is used to capture the readers attention. Filak and Knight both characterize a lede as the biggest part in a story. In journalistic writing, lede’s are how stories get published. I have been use to introduction paragraphs but it is very identical to a lede. Grabbing the readers attention is not always that easy, sometimes the paper is not about something interesting . Filak helps to highlight to the reader it can sometimes come easy. Knight takes a different approach but in the end, the result is to grab the readers attention.
