The news I choose to analysis titled ‘Suicide bomber attacks Istanbul, kills four’ published on Wikinews on March 21, 2016. This piece of news is good as a whole, for example, there is a section about related articles listed on the right side of the news story “giving the readers access to where the information came from as well as saving the user time and effort in finding out more”(Rohumaa, L., & Bradshaw, P.aul 2011), but there are still some points should be improved to better its online delivery.
•1.There is no other method like apps and platforms for readers to receive latest news except by logging into the website, which would influence the efficiency of online delivery.
•2. Journalists are allowed to upload various media such as video and audio. (Rohumaa & Bradshaw. 2011) Laking of multimedia methods to release the news would influence the expression effect of the news.
•3. No comments are allowed on the page, which would influence readers engaging in online news releasing.
•4. The information management should be improved. The website layout is mixed and in confusion and there is no specific categories of the news presented on the main page.
