What is “News”? News is simply what made it into today’s paper or news broadcast. With near ly188 countries, 5 billion people, and thousands of events that “happened” yesterday. Only the ones that actually made the paper became news. Tomorrow will have its own news, so the rejected events will never be news. News is not about history, but about profits, when newspaper publishers are thinking clearly, from the very beginning.
The second preliminary point is that there is no need of thinking of news as daily. It comes along irregularly when people, exercising their own judgment, they decide something they heard was interesting or important, and passed it on. The third preliminary, the content is accepted to a sense of important social or political events. There have been many occasions in the history of journalism where opinion has been published as news, where comments have been presented with the authority of facts.
The Fourth preliminary, is the most common mistake in thinking about news is to imagine that the most important events are those that get the most publicity. The reverse may be true. Powerful people do not usually like publicity. and the media have learned that customers will pay as much or more to read about celebrities as about the powerful.
The Origins of Newspapers The history of newspapers is an often-dramatic chapter of the human experience going back some five centuries. The first printed newspaper appeared in Germany in the late 1400′s in the form of news broadsides, often highly exaggerated in content. The first successively newspaper published was The Weekly Newes of 1622, and the first true newspaper in English was the London Gazette of 1666.
Newspapers play a vital role in human affairs. Its importance has not been reduced by the appearance of the radio or the television. Newspaper has become the main source of information about local and foreign events. Even though radio and television conveys important news and messages quicker than the newspaper, they produce the details of an incident. On the other hand, it gives not only more detail about a particular incident but it also contains more new items.
Newspaper are easier to carry and it could be read at any time during the day. Further, the stability of the printed word helps one to refresh memories of certain facts and incidents reported in the past. Furthermore, the importance of newspaper has been increased by the spread of education, newspaper appeals most especially if one finds little time to read books. However, newspapers should read with caution, for its ability, to do harm is great. Most people believe everything that is reported by the newspaper. As a result, when some news is reported wrongly either by a mistake or design, it may cause a lot of misbehaviour.
However, newspapers try to report as accurately as possible, for competing with other newspapers to provide accurate information on world developments, and it is the newspaper that links us with the outside world. To conclude this newspapers are very important to any target audience this is because the style, content. Yet, the many readers are affected by education, meaning they are learning and improving their language. My view is without newspapers and replaced by radio and television,
