THE NEWS part 2 cont- THE NEWS CYCLE

The News has a cycle like any manufactured product.

1. A NEWS ‘EVENT’ IS SELECTED … out of millions of random ‘events’ happening in the world

2. THE NEWS EVENT IS REPORTED … by journalists & now untrained bloggers & tweeters

3. THE NEWS EVENT IS MEDIATED … via radio tv internet, it is transformed by the medium

4. THE NEWS EVENT IS CONSUMED …as an information product by a mass audience
