This Buzzfeed article is relatively informative and quick to outline the 5 W’s and an H. However, there are a few areas that need improvement.
The headline excludes the title of ‘Home Affairs Minister’ which would give the story more context and enhance SEO optimisation.
Instead of using a photograph of Dutton, an embedded image of his announcement via Instagram is included. A feature image of Dutton himself within the article would be far more visually powerful.
The article does detail his role as Home Affairs Minister, with a hyperlink out to the National Security Committee of Cabinet (which he is a member of), highlighting the potential risk posed on others including the Prime Minister.
However, it turns slightly satirical, with an embedded tweet stating: “I guess Peter Dutton will have to be sent to Christmas Island”. By including this tweet, an element of humour is injected, detracting from the severity of the situation. Furthermore, a comments section allows for members of the public to leave profane remarks about the ‘hilarity’ of Dutton, of all people, contracting the virus.
Thus, the conclusion of the article hinders the ‘breaking news’ element and importance of the story.
