News is information about current events that are of interest to the public. It can be about anything from politics, crime, business, fashion and entertainment to weather, natural disasters, and health. News is often published in the form of newspapers, magazines and radio programmes but can also be found on TV and the internet. It is a common belief that the more technologically advanced society is, the less people will use traditional media to access news but this has not been proven.
Generally, a piece of news will only be reported if it is breaking and has not been reported by another source. This is why it is important to keep your eyes open and to pay attention to what is happening around you. It is also useful to have a good imagination and a sense of what might be interesting or important to the public. It can be helpful to think about how you would like to hear the news and what you would like others to tell you if you were writing an article about a particular topic.
When it comes to News, people are interested in stories that they think are significant or important and are therefore going to be talked about. However, what is considered to be newsworthy will vary between societies. For example, a man waking up, eating breakfast and catching the bus to work does not make news because it is not unusual.
