Across virtually every social network site, users scramble to be the first to break a news story. Inevitably, this leads to hundreds of duplicate story submissions and ends with one winner amongst hundreds of losers. But even if you weren’t the Woodward & Bernstein who successfully broke the story, there’s still hope. Remember, the story isn’t over once the news breaks; indeed, in many cases, it’s just beginning.

Great advice. If you want more examples search for something like "journalism finding the angle" or "journalism finding new angles" on Google. I remember a whole week of Writing for Newspaper classes in J-school dedicated to taking an old story and finding a new angle. They were fun exercises too.
