News is a form of information that is short-lived and frequently reported moments after a particular event occurs. It occurs early in the Information Lifecycle, before the age of the Internet. News covers a wide range of topics, including current events, scholarly sources, and cultural and historical perspectives. A typical news story involves several actors and is generally very dramatic.
News sources include newspapers, magazines, radio stations, and the Internet. Some news sources provide insights that scholarly sources may not provide, or that may take many years to reach. News is also a good source of reactions to events and prevailing attitudes in the area around an event. Some sources of news are better than others, depending on your preferences. Some are best for breaking news, others for aggregation, and others for historical content.
Journalists’ choices of news stories are influenced by many factors, including deadlines, access, and competition among journalists for exclusives. However, in this age of social media, audiences are playing a greater role in determining what is newsworthy. Therefore, journalists should consider the preferences of their audience when choosing news stories.
News stories may be about famous people or events. These stories may involve scandal, loss of power, or other events that have a large impact on the public. They may also include news about the health of various people, such as news about new medical breakthroughs or the health of certain animals. A variety of stories concerning entertainment can also make the news.
