Sorry about the confusion. I believe what I said was to copy and paste the first paragraph or two into the description field, to make it easier to rewrite. At least that's why I meant to say! Basically, you'll want to paraphrase the most important features of a news article: what the story is about, what the problem is, and what the conclusion or remedy is. Usually, you'll find the answers to all three of those questions in the first paragraph or two - so copy and paste the first paragraph into the "description" field, rewrite it in just a few sentences, and then delete the stuff you've copied and pasted.
I hope this helps!
