The term TODAY stands for Today, Sunday Times, similar to PR. The abbreviation TODAY stands for news, sports and weather. Besides the above, news is defined by different writers and journalists of mass communication. It is a daily summary of major events, information and happenings around the world. Today is observed as the day when mass audiences turn to television sets, newspapers and radios to get current news and world events.
All major publications including major news papers publish several newspapers on a daily basis. They have a large readership amongst them. Many of the reputed newspapers and magazines are known by their readership in countries such as the United Kingdom. Many of these publications provide free content on some topics. They are also available in the form of books or periodicals on a part of their website.
A major role has been played by the media in disseminating information on almost all subjects within the published world. All journalists have a different outlook and style of writing. But they have come up with an agreement to write news items that uphold a set of values to news readers. There are many news selections that portray good news in a positive light to enhance the readers’ mood and mentality. But some newspapers carry news that is negative in nature. This is where the role of a news reader becomes important.
News publications are categorized into two types: news agencies and journalism. News agencies include news desks of major international banks and news organisations such as BBC World, CNN, CTV News and Agence France Presse. These services are published by the major broadcast and print media houses. They publish news items on a particular topic that helps people understand a situation better and respond accordingly.
News publishing companies are owned by large news organisations such as AP, Reuters and The Associated Press. They provide online news services and are also responsible for managing their own reporters and other related resources. Their news selection decisions are based on their editorial policies and guidelines. The major advantage of online news services over traditional journalism is that online journalists are able to cover stories that other journalists find difficult to cover due to time constraints.
Many journalists feel that the power elite has become so powerful that they no longer can be ruled by the common man. But they are only individuals according to the law and everyone has the right to criticize them in whichever way they see fit. Social media users are the beneficiaries of the criticism since they allow us to make comments on any subject at any time. Therefore we can judge them and question their actions accordingly.
