1.    Use the 3rd person point of view
Unlike in feature writing where one can use the 1st person, 2nd, and 3rd approach, news stories should be in the 3rd person only because news are events that are reported to the people basically for information.                     Example:
“Former Philippine President Corazon Aquino was laid to rest, Aug. 5, which was made as national holiday to give chance to all Filipinos to sympathize with the bereaved family and to ponder on the legacy of faith and freedom left by Cory to the nation.”
