What is News?

Categories : Gembing

News is the information about current events obtained from every moment and everywhere, transmitted to the public in an accurate, fast and objective way. News conveys all the information that is happening in the world to the audience through various media like newspapers, radio, television and the Internet.

The information that makes it into a newspaper, onto the TV news line-up, or posted on a news website is decided by people who work for a particular news organization. They are called editors, news directors or even news managers. Taking recommendations from reporters and assistant editors they sift through the events of the day to decide what is newsworthy.

In general, things that make news are those that affect a lot of people in some significant way. For example, a major political scandal or an earthquake may interest many people. Other examples are fires, floods or hurricanes. In the case of the stock market, a fluctuation in prices over a long period of time may have a huge impact on many investors and therefore become newsworthy.

People also tend to be interested in news that are useful to them, such as weather forecasts and train times. This kind of news has educational value and helps people to be more informed about their local communities. It is also a good idea to tune into a wide variety of news sources so that you can see how different people and organizations present their news.
