News is information which was not known before either current events aired on the radio, newspaper, television or even in big print media or online. An example of news would be a newly married couple announcing their wedding in a large family meeting. This news would become a huge event with reports flying around the world within hours of the wedding taking place. This is how news travels and spreads. Although news is often misinterpreted by some as ‘trend’ news, it should not be treated as such.
When we speak of a ‘crisis,’ usually this refers to a situation where there is an impending disaster or some kind of emergency that is unfolding and threatening to disrupt normal life. This can then become the basis for new news stories, especially those which are sensational in nature. As we have seen throughout the recent economic crisis, there were a number of reports that came out about the failures of major corporations in a very short period of time. As these companies began to fail, the scope of coverage in the press expanded and included the failures of the government officials who had been asked to lead these businesses.
The scope of the reporting on these firms became so great that it affected the opinions of the American public. As the opinions started to leak out into the media and into the public policy arena, these firms were accused of hurting the American economy. As a result, there was a new era of journalism known as the ‘New Journalism’ or ‘New Media.’ This new style of journalism focused on current affairs and the workings of public policy. This then became the focus of all news coverage.
There was also a new trend of journalists who reported on stories which were considered too far-fetched to be taken seriously by the traditional media. Examples of these would include stories about ‘space aliens,’ stories which involved celebrities breaking their leg and falling into a coma, and even news stories about people slipping into a chocolate liquid and turning into a mindless zombie. In recent years, there has been a resurgence in interest in both the entertainment industry and in the world of public policy and government accountability.
This new focus of news media and journalism resulted in many new voices coming onto the scene. One of these new voices was the Fox News Channel, which is better known as the Wall Street Journal. The Wall Street Journal now covers many different topics and stories from all over the world and across all spectrums of the news media and journalism spectrum. This has caused a sea change in the way that news is written and distributed.
With the advent of the Internet, many news websites have changed from simply being websites to becoming what is sometimes known as an online magazine. This online magazine would then specialize in providing news about the topics of the times that interested readers. As such, there are some news stories that would be of interest to younger readers or Internet users. These stories are chosen for publication on the news sites by people who are older or people who may not have a lot of knowledge about the subject, but who want to be informed about it.
