Why Does the Executive Order Make News?
Journalism is the human activity of collecting, evaluating, developing, and publishing news and other information for the news media. It is an outgrowth of all these activities. Journalism is distinguished by some unique characteristics and various practices from other disciplines and products.
In the United States, the process of disseminating news makes news which in turn becomes part of the official public service. But this is not always so. Some news is prepared for prominent figures who have the authority to control the distribution or interpretation of news. The concept of vox media, or “vulgar press,” was an earlier expression that referred to the editorializing of news.
The Vox media concept is not used today, but news is always made news through the power of the press, editorials, advertisements, popular acclaim, and popular acclaim again. To make news, the power of news is used in a democratic way by the broad mass communication medium, television. There is no vox media in this sense. In fact, news is made news only when the state or the executive ordering the news makes it news. Any news that is made or manipulated to serve the will of the State or any particular person, party, or group is news.
