News Intertwining The

News-and-Society News is the process of dissemination of information. It has be.e the centrepoint of the world. In olden days, news gathering was quite primitive by today’s standards. Printed news had to be phoned in to a newsroom or brought there by a reporter, where it was typed and either transmitted over wire services or edited and manually set in type along with other news stories for a specific edition. These days, the term news has be.e trite as broadcast and cable news services use live satellite technology to bring current events into consumers’ homes live as they happen. Events that used to take hours or days to be.e .mon knowledge in towns or in nations are fed instantaneously to consumers via radio, television, mobile phone, and the Internet. These days, news is not simply reported by the media, it is created by the media. the objective of news is to inform the audience. It’s the job of all the news media to tell people what’s going on in their .munity – locally, nationally or globally. In this sense, the news media provide a valuable public service. News that satisfies readers’ curiosity answers the following basic questions: Who? What? When? Where? Why? and How? If a news piece is unable to do the same then, it doesnt qualify as a news piece. Reporting of facts is news but, one has to keep in mind the fact that exaggerating or distorting information based upon these factors is called sensationalism and if someone is indulging in sensationalism then, he is certainly deviating from the truth, the news. News is significant because it educates the people and the posterity can learn from the past mistakes only because news is documented. The news, plays a vital role in human affairs, The importance of news has been increased greatly by the spread of education. People need a well-rounded understanding of politics, the environment, social structures, and economy, in short- of news, for, thats vital in order to make important decisions in their lives. The news should, however, be believed with caution, for its capacity to do harm is great. Most people believe everything that is reported by the news agencies. As a result, the news exerts a profound influence on the audience. Therefore, when some news is reported wrongly either by mistake or design, it may cause a lot of harm. One the other hand, if the policy of the news agency is to promote the welfare of the people, it could do a lot of good. For example, it could exercise its influence to persuade the government of a country to do many things for the benefit of the people. To sum it all, news is important but, not all of it. We must sort the trivial from the profound, judge it appropriately, and then, if needed, act on it. Without this, we may find ourselves overwhelmed with information or, worse, giving opinions when it would be better to remain silent. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
