An Introduction To News
News is information concerning current affairs. This can be given through several media: verbal communication, print, broadcasting, postal systems, television, or by the personal testimony of witnesses and observers to recent events. The mass media give much more in-depth information regarding local, national, and global news. A common method of disseminating news is through the printed press. Newspapers and other news organs publish regularly scheduled news stories, obituaries, and other factual data on a specified day or at a specified time.
The Internet also contains a large amount of news. It is possible to receive online news through e-mail, regular electronic mail, or instant news. The web-based news can be delivered to a desktop computer or a laptop for immediate consumption. News distributed via the Internet is usually in the form of text, as well as graphics (such as graphs and diagrams) for clearer understanding.
Some news items are often in conflict with one another. For example, while some stories report the execution of a terrorist suspect, others claim that the person was actually killed by a civilian. It is important to remember that what is reported on the news is not necessarily true; sometimes what the police department or government agency reports is false. For this reason, you should not believe everything you read. In addition, it is very important to remain critical of the media as a whole, and not just specific stories or agencies, but the overall tendency of news to report things in a negative light.
