本文隨即選取2011 年7 月挪威極右派分子殺戮76 名無辜青少年的國際新聞為案例，發現連續3 天均出現了撰述者運用想像加工事實之線索。繼而根據17 份由記者回填之問卷發現「預期想像」輔助記者提出好的採訪問題，而「再造想像」則是最常運用的寫作思維。
||Imagination is defined in this paper as a type of mental ability that helps people to infer facts during the processes of reasoning. Although not
directly demonstrated in most straight news stories, such mental processes theoretically play a critical role in reconstructing reality in a reporter’s daily professional routine.
This study examined and analyzed a mass-murder in Norway that occurred on July 23, 2011, to explore how imagination may be applied to news writing for increasing the readability of news stories. Seventeen Taiwanese reporters were surveyed to associate theory and practice and to determine whether they perceive imagination as applicable to their news writing.
