News producing is not a job for the decision-impaired. Over the course of 24 hours, CNN Interactive's producers face a dizzying whirl of choices. They have to decide which stories to run, when they should be done, who should do them, and where to put them (oh, and they have to do it fast). The calls aren't easy, and producers don't always agree among themselves. However, given our format, resources and audience, some routes may be more apparent than others. To give you a sense of the factors our producers weigh, we've constructed some common news scenarios and asked a producer to respond to each. See if your calls match theirs.

Enter here to face your first news scenario.
