  • NEWS

    When a dog bites a man, that is not news, because it happens so often. But if a man bites a dog, that is news.” BBC News (John B Bogart, city editor of The New York Sun 1873-1890)

    Its news because journalists say it is: Just like artists say art is art 

    Eg: Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain (Urinal)

    John Venables (1993) What is News? ELM Publications. Huntingdon:

    News: understanding by osmosis:

    • Journalists produce the news
    • Jnr staff are apprentices to senior staff to ‘learn the ropes’
    • News is about people
    • News is discussed socially
    • News is something someone wants to keep secret
    • Must be new and of interest to the public

    The Royal Commission on the Press 1947-49:

    • Sports
    • News about people
    • Strange and amusing adventures
    • Tragedies and accidents
    • Crime
    • Public affairs

    1961 Guardian newspaper staff guide to news:

    • Significance: Social, economic, political, human
    • Drama: excitement, action and entertainment in the event
    • Surprise: freshness, newness, unpredictability
    • Personalities: royal, political, showbiz, others
    • Sex, scandal, crime
    • Numbers: Scale of the event, number of people affected
    • Proximity: on out doorstep, or 10,000 miles away

    We have these lists but it does not explain WHY: 

    John Galtung & Mari Ruge 1973

    • Frequency
    • Scale 
    • Unambiguity (news stories have clarity - the mass audience understand)
    • Meaningfulness
    • Consonance (agreement or compatibility between opinions or actions)
    • Unexpectedness
    • Continuity
    • Composition (beginning, middle and end of the story)
    • Elite Nations
    • Elite People
    • Personalisation
    • Negativity (“Bad news is good news”)

    The journalist is the editor - making all of these decisions

    So far we’ve pointed at things and declared them to be news but we still don’t know what news is or why we feel the need to engage with it. What role does it play?

    Creates knowledge and understanding, yet it is constantly changing: it is history in first draft. We engage with it to know what is happening, if it will affect us etc. 

    Ideology: a set of beliefs that affects your outlook on the world, conscious and unconscious ideas. Things that are crimes attack the mainstream ideology: rape, murder, violence, war, etc.
