What Makes Up the News?


News makes up a large portion of the information that we read in newspapers, magazines, watch on television, listen to on the radio and find on the Internet. The stories that make up the news are often dramatic in nature and focus on good and bad characters or situations.

When we hear or read about something that makes up the news, it usually affects a large number of people. It may concern politics, the economy, a natural disaster, a neighborhood, or an entire city.

We see the news on TV, in the newspaper and on the Internet because we want to know what is going on in the world around us. We need to be informed and keep up-to-date on current events in order to make wise decisions about our lives.

It is very important to note that the content of the news we see on the media is a product of our culture and is therefore subject to our own judgments about what makes good or bad news. This is influenced by our beliefs and values, which are shaped by how we have been raised and what our own experiences tell us about the way the world works.

It is also important to note that the news we see on the media has to be evaluated by gatekeepers and suppliers before it is given to us as news. They decide which stories are worth pursuing and which ones they can drop because of the cost of advertising or because it will hurt their bottom line if they include the story on their broadcasts or newspapers.
