The news is a journalistic genre presenting the actual reality, which it puts in a communicable form, then transmitted through modern mass media techniques.
In the field of journalism, information must be understood in a double sense. Information is a term that becomes the press. Some authors even define information as "the process of social communication and the institutions that provide this process."
The definitions of the news are numerous, belonging to various press schools, and reflect a certain conception of the press, the functions and the social position of the journalist and the press. In a Czechoslovak journal of journalism, news is defined as a brief, operative communication of a new or new social fact, of a social process or of its results, of an unusual knowledge or of an expression of ideas.
According to other statements, "the news is a" novelty, "the story of recent events. To have the news, what is being reported must be: acual, pending, important, significant or unusual." is also defined as a fact or a precise idea that will interest a large number of readers; "news is any communication made at the right time because it is interesting and meaningful." It is an account of the significant aspects of a topical occurrence, which is interesting for the readers of the newspaper where the story is published, news is the first account of significant events, interest to the public ".
From these definitions we can extract two qualifiers: interest and meaning as basic traits of a story that can be considered a news story. By summarizing the opinions expressed on the characteristics of the news, the following definition can be formulated: the press release is a brief narrative of some facts, events, significant ideas, current news, a story that is of interest to the public.
