Agence France-Presse – French Press Agency
News is anything from the mundane to the outrageous. The most popular form of news is television news, as it provides the most up to date and current news stories that are internationally broadcasted. Television news is generally anything that people discuss; the more it interest the better its importance. When you first hear about a newscast, it may be completely irrelevant to you, however after the show ends many people refer to the news anchor and discuss the things that were discussed on their shows.
A news agency or news service is a company or organisation that produces news reports for television, newspapers, magazines etc. News agencies also provide news briefs online for people who want quick and current information on specific issues. There are many news agencies and news services available in the UK today. Many news agencies and news services provide their news feeds free of charge and are accessible to everyone through their websites.
Most news agencies and news services are solely staffed by women and this makes it easier for them to provide quality news reports that attract a huge audience. Some of the news agencies and news services are also supported by the government through grants and contracts. Agence France-presse is one example of a French news agency. The reason for this being that French news agencies adhere very strictly to the principles set out by la Gestion de ceux.
