“2.00 What is News” – FLVS Journalism 1 Assignment

Reporter’s Notebook

“What is News?”ย Explain your answer using your current understanding of news in general. Is news something that you read? Is it something that you hear? Is it something that you watch? Is it something that you get from friends? What makes news different from other types of communication?

Hmmmm. I think news is actually a lot of things. Gossip in a sense is news, basically. It is information that travels between people, and most of the time the people have not found out the news before it gets to them, that why it’s news ๐Ÿ™‚

News can be listened to, watched, or read. On the radio, on the Television, or in Newspaper. News can also be read on a Blog. In fact many news stations have their own blogs for reporting news quickly.

News can also be gotten from friends, passed on from friend to friend. But it depends on what kind of “news” you are talking about. When we teenagers talk about news, we are talking about “so and so getting an new car”, or like “some one didn’t make it to church.” But that “news” is actually gossip, not really news. Most of us teenagers still consider this a from of news.
