MORE ABOUT NEWS STORY
What is a news story?
The term news report often means the same thing, but a news report may or may not be presented as a narrative account.
The term news story is often used to distinguish a news report as completely fact-based, as opposed to an editorial or opinion piece. A news story can consist of any fact-based news, though the term is sometimes used to distinguish it as hard news, as opposed to a feature story, for example.
The term news article is often used to mean the same thing as news story. However, the word article implies a piece of writing (in text form). In contrast, a news story can refer to a report presented in any medium, including websites, newspapers, magazines, TV, or other visual and audio formats.
Of course, just because a report or account is labeled or presented as “news” or a “news story” doesn’t mean it’s completely fact-based. Items falsely presented as new stories may include opinions or fabricated information.
In casual use, new stories are often simply called stories, as in Did you read that story about the election?
Example: Our journalism professor had us read news stories in three major newspapers and compare them.
Where does news story come from?
The first records of the term news story come from around 1900. In general contexts, the word story often refers to a fictional tale, but that’s not the case in the context of journalism and news. In these contexts, story implies not fiction but narrative—it usually indicates that an account of events is being presented at least in part in narrative form (as opposed to simply being a list of facts). However, the terms news story and just story are used so broadly and commonly to refer to news reports that they are sometimes applied to such nonnarrative reports.

I turn 40 this month which is notable for two reasons: first, I was told I would not live to see 40 when diagnosed with ALS three years ago; second, it makes me old enough to remember when a single news story would dominate coverage for multiple days.
