News is an item of news which is delivered to the public with a particular aim or attitude. News items are those items of news which have special interest for the people who have it or for the people who listen to it or read it. A few news items are reported by the media as part of their regular news items. Examples of such news items are weather reports, local news, and sports events. All other news items are termed as news items.
Examples of news stories which are reported by the media and have special interest for the people who have it or for the people who listen to it or read it are historical news, world news, breaking news, weather news, and political news. If you wish to make news of your own, you can do so by making news stories of your own. You can also record these news stories and make them available to the media if you wish to do so. Examples of such recorded news stories are voice-overs used in television commercials, fictional news characters created for comic strips, and short, humorous videos which make popular on YouTube.
Some news stories may affect many people, and if this happens the news story will become an event. Such an event will attract many people to take an interest in the news item and may cause more people to pay attention. The interest generated by such an event may affect public opinion. This may affect government policy. For example, if a new policy is adopted by the government based on the findings of a survey conducted, this survey may become newsworthy and people will likely pay more attention to it and discuss it.
Many news stories that attract a lot of listeners or viewers, especially online, become viral. This is because they are funny or have some other relevance to the listener’s life which makes them appealing to many people. This type of news story can spread rapidly through various forms of media and the internet. It may affect the listeners directly or indirectly. For example, if a joke that went viral on YouTube made people laugh so hard they shared the link on Facebook and Twitter, many people are likely to follow the joke and end up following the singer who performed the joke.
A news story has a unique news value due to its irreverent nature. It is not the same as a piece of fiction. For example, a news report which reports about the antics of a wild bear, which was caught on camera and whose owner was filmed chasing it around a park may make listeners laugh and at the same time tell them a story about a very unusual animal. On the other hand, a piece of news which involves the negative side of human behavior may also have a news value because the writer wants to convey the seriousness of the situation. Some examples of news stories which have this dual purpose are those which report about tragic events, natural calamities and crimes.
In order to get this interesting side to your reporting, it is important that you understand how the medium works. There are certain constraints that limit the way the mass media can work. For instance, just like television cannot show someone having sex in a moving vehicle, print media cannot show child abuse. However, there are various exceptions such as newspapers, magazines and books, which may include stories based on a secret affair between a public figure and a confidential source. Therefore, it may affect listeners differently depending on whether they agree with the medium’s point of view or not.
