The Basics of News


The Basics of News

News (noun) A daily report of events, normally of an ongoing or recent nature, often focusing on a single issue. Also known as a news magazine or news report. A recent topical subject of news. It’s also used to describe news which has been widely reported but not confirmed by the mainstream media.

News stories are generally reported by several sources and can be broadly classified into two categories: newsworthy events and non-newsworthy events. Non-newsworthy events are typically things that happened in the news but not necessarily something that is newsworthy in the eyes of the general public. For instance, a candidate being charged with a crime or a terrorist act, even if it’s news to the public at large, would be considered newsworthy in the eyes of the police, the prosecutor, and the media, however unlikely it may seem at first glance.

What is interesting about the reporting of news today is that there is a tendency to focus on what is happening locally at a particular time. This makes national and international news less important because people are more interested in what is going on at their neighborhood level. However, this does not mean that all news is local news. There are several international news agencies that are dedicated to providing world-wide coverage on everything from politics and religion to sports and fashion. There are many television stations dedicated to providing world-wide coverage on local, world, and even national events. All news is subjective and you will find news from around the world but depending on your interests, you may find that the sources you choose are very different.
