Do the elements of news change priority in an online world?

Depending on the source, there are 5-20 elements of news discussed in courses and textbooks about news.

Timeliness, relevance, prominence, conflict, proximity, oddity, consequence, human interest… Some sources even add elements such as drama and sex.

These are elements that determine the newsworthiness of a story. Some of these elements are found in almost every news story, others are found in very few news story, but their existence automatically defines an item as newsworthy.

The elements of news also change according to the given publication or news outlet.

Perhaps a discussion is warranted on whether or not the value of these items changes in an online news source. If so, how?

If we were to list standards of almost all news sources such as accuracy, relevance, immediacy, and interestingness (not a real word, deal with it), how would these items rank in value to a newspaper vs. cable news and cable news vs. online news?
