News is a way of keeping the public informed about events and situations that are happening in their communities, countries and the world. It is also a means of informing the public about important political, social and economic issues that may be occurring or about to happen.
Generally speaking, News is about things that are dramatic, unusual or out of the ordinary. The more dramatic or out of the ordinary a news item is, the more likely it will be to make the News. For example, if you miss your bus to work this morning and have to walk to work, this will probably not be enough of an event to make the evening news program on TV. However, if you happen to see a litter of baby tigers while on your walk to work and take them to the local animal shelter, this will be a much bigger news story and more likely to make the 5:00 PM newscast.
In addition to a dramatic or unusual element, news items also need to have some kind of relevance to the public. This is especially true in the case of a news story about an event that affects everyone, or that is very serious and/or controversial. It is also very difficult to make interesting news out of something that happens every day, or about a topic that is not of interest to most people.
The decision as to whether a particular event is newsworthy or not is made by the people who make and present the News, and is based on the perception of the public about the importance of an event or situation, or about the level of drama involved. This is the same for all societies around the world. For example, if a farm wall collapses killing a cow and a pig, which will be talked about more often? The answer to this question will vary from society to society, depending upon the relative importance of cows and pigs.
Another important aspect of News is that it should be objective, and not bias against any group or individual. This is not always easy, as reporters and editors are human, and will naturally have their own views and opinions which will influence the type of News they report. However, a good way to counteract this bias is to read a wide range of News sources and newspapers to get a well rounded view of what is going on in the world.
A good place to start is with online news aggregators, which will provide you with articles from a variety of news outlets and countries. They use algorithms to filter out the News, which can help counteract some of the natural human biases, and allow you to read many different takes on the same event. This can open your mind to the possibility that there are multiple truths about a given subject, and may change the way you think about the world around you.
