What Makes News?


News is an important part of our lives. It keeps us informed of what is happening around the world and helps us to make sense of our world and our place in it.

News can come from anywhere, in any medium. It is a form of communication that has been around for centuries and is transmitted by a variety of ways, including newspapers, radio and television.

There are many different things that can make news and most people know what is news, and what isn’t. But not everyone is aware of the process that makes something news, or how gatekeepers decide what to include in a newspaper, onto the TV news line-up, or on the news Internet site.

Timeliness is one of the most important aspects of determining what will make news and what won’t. If a man wakes up, eats breakfast and then goes to work on a bus, it’s not considered an unusual or exciting event; however, if he pulls a litter of baby tigers out of a cardboard box and brings them to an animal rescue shelter-that’s something that will definitely make the news!

Drama is another characteristic that makes a story more likely to become news. Think of what you would most like to see on the news if you were in charge of deciding which stories should be broadcast.

Keeping an eye on the news, and making sure that you understand how it is made, will help you to write your own news reports and articles. You’ll also have a better understanding of how to engage your readers and show off your writing skills.
