What is News?


News is information about events that affect the lives of people. It can be either current (about events that have happened recently) or historical (about events that have already happened). News is reported on by journalists, and the stories are published in newspapers, magazines, radio, TV and online. It is important for journalists to report accurate and factual information, and not to impose their own views or opinions on the reader.

What is newsworthy depends on what society considers to be significant and interesting. In general, the more unusual, the more interesting and the more significant something is, the more likely it is to be newsworthy. But what is considered significant and interesting will vary from society to society.

It is also important for journalists to find out about events as soon as possible so that they can report them quickly and accurately. This is why a newspaper usually only prints a very brief summary of an event at the start of an article, and then puts more detailed information later in the story.

It is often best to find a relatively unbiased source of news, such as the BBC, so that you can be sure that the information you are receiving is accurate and reliable. Using a news aggregator site like Google News can also be helpful, as it can provide you with a wide variety of different news reports from around the world. Remember to always include quotes from your sources in your news articles, as this will help readers to engage with the information you are reporting.
