First, you have to know what a dateline is -- and what it is
The dateline of a news story has important information -- it
indicates the city the journalist was in when he or she reported
on the story. It also indicates the date the story was filed.
However, the dateline does not indicate the
place of publication. For example, an article that
was published in a US-based newspaper, website, or TV network
was produced in the US for an audience of Americans. It can
thus be considered to have the US as its place of publication
-- regardless of the dateline. (See example, right).
