Types of News
News is a piece of information that is related to an event or a topic. It is reported and often contains scandal and violence. It is also local and timely. The following are examples of events that are newsworthy: hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, the 9/11 attacks on the United States, the Boston Marathon bombings in Boston, Massachusetts, and the election of Barack Obama in the United States. These stories were considered newsworthy by editors and producers and were reported by journalists.
News is a report of an event
There are various ways in which news can be provided, including print and broadcast media. News can be categorized as “hard news” or “soft news.” Some of the common types of news are political, economic, and environmental. Entertainment and lifestyle news can also be considered news.
It contains violence and scandal
Netflix’s “Anatomy of a Scandal” has strong language and profanity and revolves around a case of rape. There is some discussion about sexual content, but no nude scenes. There are scenes of a young boy “anal chugging” alcohol or “downing alcohol off someone’s butt crack.” There is also a scene involving the death of a classmate.
It is timely
Timely news is news that is current and happening right now. This news is more interesting than news from the past week, and readers are more likely to pay attention to stories about recent events. On the other hand, even stories that are older can be made timely through a new twist or discovery. Similarly, news about upcoming events or important people has more new value when it is close to publication.
It is a form of advertising
Advertising has always been a part of journalism, and it is one of the primary funding sources for journalism. In the early days, advertisers were not interested in the content of news, but rather in the audiences that the news would reach. Until the introduction of television and radio, newspapers and magazines were largely funded by advertisements.
It preaches nationalism
Christian nationalism is a movement that believes that America is a Christian nation. The group was founded by Christian ministers and leaders in the U.S., primarily those influenced by the Bible. The group’s members include Proud Boys, QAnon adherents, Oath Keepers, and countless individuals with no identifiable group affiliation. Whether or not these groups actually preach Christian nationalism remains to be seen, but it is clear that the ideology is consistent with Christianity.
