This shouldn't be cutlisted. It might need an upgrade or an overhaul or just a little TLC. But "Local Angle" is absolutely a legitimate media trope, something I can attest to as a former working journalist.

Subtrope of Creator Provincialism, related to A Million Is a Statistic. You can share the examples for newspapers on that page as well.

I'm sorry about being hasty, I may see if I can put it on more indexes so it gets more traffic.

Creator Provincialism is fiction, and being related to another trope is not a good enough reason to cut a page. "Find the Local Angle" is preached in journalism schools and newsrooms around the country. It's an actual, factual thing. It should have a page.

My main objection was with the low amount of examples, and that it looked like they were shoehorned on the end of a Useful note page. Now it looks a lot better, although I do think it would have got more examples going through YKTTW first.
