What Is News?


News is information about current events that people share and discuss. News can be delivered via a number of media including newspapers, magazines, radio and television. News can also be shared and disseminated online through social media platforms like Facebook.

Keeping up with the news can help people stay informed about important issues and make better decisions. It can also improve critical thinking skills and help people develop a more global perspective. However, the amount of news that is available can be overwhelming and it can be difficult to keep up with all of it.

A news story is considered to be ‘newsworthy’ when it meets certain criteria, such as being unusual, surprising or sensational. Other factors that may determine whether something is newsworthy include its impact, timeliness and how easily it can be verified.

Historically, governments have been the source of most news stories, but now many more sources contribute to the news. For example, social media and blogs have become a source of breaking news. It is also easier than ever to report on the news, with many people becoming citizen journalists.

A wide variety of topics can be classified as news, but some examples include war, politics, religion, celebrities, crime, weather and business. Government proclamations, royal ceremonies and laws are also often considered newsworthy. People are also interested in the lives of famous people, and news about their careers, homes and children are often reported. Health-related news is also of interest, such as medical research, hospitals and diseases. Sex is also of interest to the public, and news about sex can be a highly charged political issue.
