Which is news?

- B – Dog bites reporter
- C – Someone known for years to be a lesbian “comes out”
- D – Senator admits to 15 years of church membership
- E – Man bites dog
- F- Politician changes his stripes to suit his audience
If you answered A, B, C, D or F, you might do better as an historian.
