I think "Fedora 8 is released on 8 November" is, to some degree, a 
non-story.
The story is, "Fedora 8, which is released on 8 November, empower me to 
do X, Y and Z" (where X, Y and Z are some features I was hungry for for 
a long time).

Also, there are news for various audiences: the games spin (DVD) is 
probably completely uninteresting for business tech publications but it 
may be something big for other communities (I bet a news item about it 
will score high on Digg, it may get on Slashdot, it may get on non-Linux 
gaming sites).

On the same line, stories about Pulse Audio will not get important 
traction from the business oriented press (as opposed to geek press) but 
Iced Tea or SELinux may hit a big point there.
