In our daily life we come across many news items, some are true and others are false. It becomes really hard to differentiate between the two. News is something that is created for entertainment and information purposes. According to the Oxford dictionary, news is “a written article about current events, normally related to the news and public affairs”. A radio or television programme usually containing reports on current events. A fictional presentation as in a TV show or in a newspaper.
The purpose of creating news stories or reports is to entertain or inform the people. Today we see a great number of news channels on TV and a large number of online media outlets reporting on different news stories. News has become a part and parcel of our lives that we can even see it on the internet. Now you do not have to wait for any particular channel to air a news story; you can simply watch news stories online whenever you feel like it without any time restraints.
Every major news channel has their news desks, which is where all journalists work and where all news stories are prepared. Most newspapers have an online news desk where news or current events are published. But even today there are news desks that exist offline which cater to the newspaper’s local community and to the readers living in that locality. All the major newspapers today have their news desks, where a reporter pens and reposes the main article and submits it to the main article directory.
