Every day the news is full of stories of grief and disaster. Whether the news is delivered via the newspaper, television, radio or the internet, we are never left without knowledge of what is going on in the world. Covering and reporting the news is interesting and exciting.

There is a lot of work that goes into preparing a news report regardless of how it is being delivered. It is important that facts are gathered and reported accurately and in a timely fashion. Almost all of us have seen movies and TV shows or read books where journalists and editors clamor to get the hot item, the prize-winning story, the so-called front-page news or headliners.

Sometimes these stories are sports related. Sometimes they are about war or natural disasters. Occasionally a good news story will make the front page but that is very seldom. Normally, the daily news consists of horror, pain and human suffering of some sort.

Because of the internet and cell phones, news stories are delivered even faster than ever before. As we have all witnessed, sometimes we are able to watch news-breaking stories as they happen because people are able to capture the action on their smart-phone cameras.

For instance, during tornado season, people miles away from the storm area can witness these funnel clouds as they are happening. Storm-chasers are there, zero yards away from the eye of the cyclone, reporting, recording and feeding live coverage to TV stations as the phenomena occur.

When earthquakes happen, people with internet access can find out about it seconds after the event. But even with technology, news reports have to be written, edited and reported by experts. People train for years to be able to deliver the news ethically and as truthfully as possible.

Another thing to consider is to ensure that details are reported in a way that the masses can understand. It is also important that facts be reported in a way that will not cause massive alarm. Even if there is cause for concern, for instance, in the event that people must evacuate their homes and their towns or cities, the news must be reported in a calm fashion.

Sometimes the news must report events such as murders and the people who commit them. These villains often become famous and their names become a household name, such as Jack the Ripper. The critical factor is to inform and warn the public about these extremely dangerous people while not alarming them at the same time.
