If you've ever done a newspaper on school you'll probably know how to write a news article and know how newspapers look like.
If you have the writer skill or even the Filmmaker skill it will also help out too because many of the challenges are based on writing an article and some are asking you to film a new scene (this is where filmmaker will help out).
