*What publishing systems do traditional (offline) media use when they publish news on the web? How do they manage articles, news, stories, headlines, editorials, etc. How do they track readers to improve headlines and layout? How do they manage categories (i.e. regional news, local news, business, sports, music, entertainment, etc.)? How do they archive news material on the web? How do they schedule articles to appear at a future date? How do they work with news valuation to place the "best" news on top? Etc.
* Produce a report answering these, and similar questions. Provide snapshots of systems that are in use. Your report should not focus on technology, but rather on editorial guidelines, news valuation etc. **Edit** Clarification: This is not a report intended for publishing. We simply need qualified answers to the above questions.
