Keeping Up With the News


News is the information that people have about what’s happening around them. It can be reported by journalists in newspapers, on television, online or even shouted about from a town crier. People read or watch News because it’s interesting and relevant to their lives. It can be about the weather, a crime in their neighbourhood, an upcoming event or something that has happened abroad.

Generally, it is the unusual or the unexpected that makes a story newsworthy. A man waking up, eating breakfast and catching the bus to work does not usually make the news, but a plane crash or an explosion in a building would. People are also interested in money; fortunes made or lost, school fees, taxes, compensation claims and the budget can be newsworthy.

It is important for the writer of a News article to try to be impartial. If the writer’s own opinions come through it may make the reader resentful or angry. It’s better to interview people who can speak for themselves and allow them to say what they think without the influence of the writer.

It is also important to find a balance between the amount of News that you consume and how much time you spend thinking about it. Too much news can lead to stress, anxiety and fatigue. If you have a strategy for staying up to date on what is going on in the world, you can keep informed without feeling overwhelmed or consumed by it.
