Encyclopedia

(Redirected to Human interest story article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or persons in an interactive and/or emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest or sympathy in the reader or viewer.

Human interest stories may be the story behind the story about an event, organization or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during war-time, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, or profile of someone known for a career achievement.

Human interest stories are sometimes criticized as "soft" news, or manipulative, sensationalistic programming.
