Examples of News
Examples of news can be found everywhere, it can be in the newspaper, on television and on the radio. But how exactly does the news get to you? It travels by way of a reporter or a broadcaster who is reporting the events that are occurring in a particular location or at any given time. Examples of news can be when the weather reports that it is going to be fine tomorrow. When the price of oil fluctuates between two figures, this is considered news because it reflects the state of the economy.
News in America has been around since before our country was even created. Stories were told around campfires and in the early morning as farmers rose early for work or for school. Stories were passed on from person to person through word of mouth or around the dinner table. As we have come of age and journalism became a professional profession, the news has also become more professional and serious in tone.
Examples of news can be found almost anywhere, it is also important to remember that not everything about life is a positive thing and that there are times when bad news is needed. American journalism in particular has covered some very controversial events such as the Oklahoma City bombings, the Oklahoma hotel bombing and the Virginia Tech shootings. Even with these terrible disasters American news reporters and broadcasters continue to perform an invaluable job in conveying good news to the general public. This is a part 1 of a 2 part series on American Journalism and the difference it makes in society.
