What is This “News” Thing Everyone is Talking About?

By Erik Hinch:

First I’ve heard of it.  To me, news is information that was previously unknown to the viewer.  If I turn on the local news station and hear that a store down on Water Street was broken into, that is news. I didn’t know about it before that moment, and I’m gaining new information on the subject.  We use news stations to learn about what is going on on many different fronts.  At the local, state, and national level, there are varying kinds of news made every day on different subjects.  News is important in that we would not be informed on as many subjects and events without them.

    I agree that news isn’t really news to us until we actually hear about it. News definitely comes in different levels and it’s everywhere.

    Your right anything unknown to you previously can be considered news…you could proobaly even consider school a medium of news when it comes to learning a new topic. And no doubt that news is everywhere and a big part of our lives!

    And we say things like, “that’s news to me” and “whats new” and “Did you tell her the news?” and that stuff is news just spread by people, not media.
