Why Does the News Make Things Better?
News is a word that has many meanings and can mean different things to different people. The word news is usually used in reference to print publications such as newspapers, magazines and others. News (n.) Also news (v.).
It is the task of the news media, i.e., print and television news media, to keep the general public well-informed about current affairs and other important developments around the world. Current news means an item that is current; but it also suggests that something is taking place, which is taking place presently or has been taking place recently. To make news “good” or “great” it is necessary to make sure that the general public gets the right information at the right time and in the right place at the right time.
There are many reasons why the news makes great things better or worse. For example, in a case like the Oklahoma City bombing or other large-scale political demonstrations, it was possible for the news to be beforehand with a live camera feed that would have allowed the public officials and the protesters to know about things in advance and prevent mass panic, which could have otherwise resulted in more damage, injuries and innocent life lost. In a case such as the terror attacks in London in 2005, the public wanted to stay updated on the events as they happened so that they could stay apprised of what was going on and so that they could provide assistance if necessary. Sometimes, the news makes great advances that we cannot imagine. The story of Princess Diana, who lost her life following a car accident made international news almost overnight.
