The World of News
News is technically information about current happening. This can be given through a variety of media: print, television, radio, postal systems, wire services, online publishing, or from the oral testimony of witnesses and other observers to current affairs. It is the general content of news that informs an audience what is happening in the world today. There are four types of news: breaking news, local news, international news, and sports news. The term ‘breaking news’ refers to a major event that has already happened, like a terrorist attack or the downfall of a government.
In breaking news, the first details are usually announced, and often more than one person dies or major damage occurs. These things are usually reported on the evening news, on television news, on radio stations, and on newspapers. These news agencies all work together to publish this news to the public.
A good example of breaking news is the earthquake and tidal flooding in New Orleans a few years back. Thousands of people were displaced, and many lost their homes and businesses. People from all over the world are still trying to get back on their feet, and many are still missing their homes and livelihoods. These things happen because the Earth is going through a process called climate change, which has been caused by greenhouse gas emissions.
Local news, on the other hand, is just the news that is local to where the person is writing or reading it. It could be a story about a local business, town, city, or state. Some places, like Australia, have a national newsreaders who read local news every day. Other news organizations write local news as well. These could be radio stations, television stations, newspapers, and magazines, among others.
International news is worldwide news that travels around the world. It can be news that is traveling from one country to another, as well as international news that is happening in many countries at one time. This type of news is especially important today as most news travels quickly and easily through the internet. While many people keep up with the national news, international news is often more important and people want to know what is happening in other countries.
There are many ways to find out what is going on in your community, town, city, state, or even the world. Many people turn to the Internet as a way to get news on any topic they are interested in. As long as the news is written for general audiences, there is no problem with that. So go out, take the time to read news, and make sure that you are happy with what you see.
