MediaNov.8Two news reports,  both  Page One,  in The Hindu,  about ongoing BJP crisis in Karnataka. The one displayed below the fold  is evidently definitive and more informative – Dissidents want six ministers axed.  But it  is the New Delhi datelined news report, a non-story,  that gets the top slot in the newspaper.

Question:  Do dateline  and  stature of the reporter,  rather than substance,  determine the display of  a  given news report gets in the newspaper ?
