What is News?

Today we spoke about what news actually is.

We were given the quote ” When a dog bites a man. that’s not news, because it happens so often. But if a man bits a dog, that’s news”

Quote from John A Bogart in F.M. O’Brien’s book Story of the (New York) Sun (1918) Chapter 10

News is something that’s happening know and relevant.

The most impact full news include people, real people, real lives and real events. They may be controversial, dramatic, even bizarre but real.

Innovation, medical and scientific breakthroughs, financial and political these are all relevant.
