piece, the story can become diluted. Feature stories are more than a reporting of the facts in a clinical, detached manner. Rather, feature writing tends to humanize the facts,
go into more depth on a matter, and seems to serve as a fleshing out of a story that has previously been reported. In the news industry hard hitting stories
