How do I write something Newsworthy?

I am a member of a number of groups, and as such I sometimes get newsworthy material which nobody has. This can be from NANOG in the form of data on networking activity; security groups about exploits or security attacks; and private communications from people. This is also a product of being trustworthy within the communities I take part in.

Let’s take the example of a number of items I posted about LinkedIn sometime ago, these contained private communications between LinkedIn staff and users, this was not because I knew the staff or the user involved. I was given this material because I had before discussed some items related to the practices of LinkedIn on my blog and showed that I would bring the story without bias.
