What is News?

News is a story about an interesting, significant, and/or important event or development. News stories are usually about people, but can also be about non-human events such as a cyclone, bush fire, drought or volcanic eruption. News stories can have a positive or negative impact on the lives of the people who read them.

News articles should include the key facts of an event or development and be written in a formal tone. The article should not contain opinions and any statements that could be construed as such should be attributed to a credible source that has been vetted. The title and byline of the article should be clearly labelled. Articles should be structured using the inverted pyramid model, whereby the most critical details appear first, followed by more detailed information further down the page.

The most common type of News is about politics and world events, but there are many other kinds of news as well. Sports, weather, local news and celebrity gossip are all types of News as well.

There is debate about how News is reported and whether it is unbiased. Some people believe that the reporting of News is inherently biased, but others argue that it can be unbiased if it is carefully and thoroughly researched and compiled.

Often it is difficult to determine if a news item is biased, but some websites have been set up to evaluate News sources for their bias. These sites can be useful in identifying sources of information that are not prone to confirmation bias.
