Anytime something major happens, the media comes alive with reports about it. Examples of major news are a newly married couple announcing their wedding in a family party. An example of big news would be the New York Times reporting that the winner of a national election has been found. The media also reports major environmental issues and environmental disasters like hurricanes or floods.
Nowadays there are a variety of media outlets that can deliver updated news to you via the internet. There are many websites that specialize in delivering up-to-date news stories. Other traditional methods of delivering news include television news and print news. In this case the print media is usually local television stations. Another delivery method for news stories is through the online journalism.
Online journalism means using various different websites to publish your news stories. Most news organizations have their own websites to reach a broad range of their audience. Many websites also allow their readers to comment on the story. This is one of the main advantages of online journalism; commentating on a news story helps build a community for the writer and gets them more feedback.
Some of the popular online journalism outlets are the Associated Press, CNN, Financial Times, and the Wall Street Journal. All of these offer their readers’ commentaries to accompany their news articles. Other news organizations offer live streaming videos for people to see as they are being reported. They are sometimes referred to as tea accounts. Tea accounts are referring to the news organizations that give people information about tea parties that are held during certain times of the year.
Newspapers are very different from websites and television stations, in that they provide full-length stories with original photographs and no commercials. Newspapers are mainly read by the people and therefore, have a very specific audience. A news desk editor has to write the main article and then work with other reporters to add additional details and support to the main article. The number of reporters on a news desk can be counted in the dozens depending on the size of the newspaper.
There are some challenges in regards to working in the news media because newspapers are often read by just a few people. There are also times when journalists get controversial or even libelous because of their stories. This is why you will find many journalists working in small towns or in college towns, where there may be a smaller amount of readership.
