Microformats have many benefits for news reporting:

  • Distributed Reporting

News can be reported on various platforms and services, and be identified, aggregated, and re-distributed to local aggregators and wire services.

  • Pro-Am Journalism

Microformats allow anyone to report news without needing to use an exclusive or proprietary application. So long as other services can perform searches or real-time analysis of incoming items, news content can be recognized.

  • Topical Filtration

As the volume of news increases, rel-tags and more news-specific microformats can be by topic-specific services to filter news content.

Specific news-related content such as statistics and quotes can be laid out automatically into [infographics|http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FInformation_graphics&ei=Mm2dRq_0PJX-gwP4ltH6Ag&usg=AFQjCNGTX0M0pHVsr28R9X-g1IsuI5K6rw&sig2=chK5FB_Vc55njjkkjfh0rA] and generally better-formatted presentation.
