The answer is, it really depends on several factors. Generally speaking, news is information of general interest to the target audience, in other words, what is newsworthy in Buenos Aires might not be newsworthy at all in Baku or vice versa. As such, journalists make decisions on what news to report based on several of these news values: timeliness, objectivity, and professionalism. And with the increase in the number of international news sources, and the consequent increase in the need for journalists to communicate the news effectively, it is important to consider these four types of news value when reporting on world events and issues. It is useful to look at some examples to better understand why journalists must make this decision.
The first of these categories is the timeliness of the news agency. The importance of this decision is to ensure the timely delivery of news stories. For example, if a story is about an oil spill in a sensitive area, the news agency must determine if it can be published within 24 hours of the news event taking place. If the story is about a terrorist attack in Europe, the news agency must ensure that the story is published as soon as possible. And with the increase in the number of international news sources, the speed of delivery of the news has become even more critical than before. This is why it is very important that news agencies take the timeliness of their news seriously, especially when communicating with international clients.
Secondly, the objectivity of the news agency is very important. An international news agency should be free from editorial bias, and it should be clearly understood that this news agency has no interest in what its reporter chooses to report. The objectivity of a news agency can include reporting on events as they happen and not merely choosing what is in fashion, or what the political leadership chooses to report. Also, the objectivity of a news agency must be taken into consideration when reporting on events that have been reported about in the media elsewhere. For instance, if the news agency chooses to report on an earthquake in Russia, while others choose to report on it in India, there may be a certain degree of objectivity.
Thirdly, professionalism of a news agency should also be considered. Many reporters believe that an International news agency should not only be aware of newsworthy events but should also take steps to ensure that it is not disseminating inaccurate information or false claims. And in order to do this, the news agency should be transparent about the types of information it chooses to disseminate. such as, for instance, not giving false information about a nuclear test in North Korea to build support for its use against United States military forces in Iraq, because the United States would find out the truth about the test soon enough anyway.
Finally, professionalism of a news agency can be measured in many ways. While there are some news outlets that give the news a very high profile by hiring a large number of journalists, or by holding press conferences and hosting interviews to discuss controversial topics, many outlets such as international ones that make their news through news releases do not have the same kind of press coverage that traditional media outlets do. They rely mainly on their readers, supporters, and readers’ opinions. Thus, the credibility of the news is directly related to its ability to establish credibility with these people. When journalists choose to provide news to their audience, they must be able to establish credibility by communicating well, being courteous, and providing accurate information.
When making the decision about which news source to use in the context of world news, a number of considerations must be kept in mind. It is important to consider not only the timeliness and objectivity of the information, but also the level of professionalism it has shown. The information itself should also be able to be verified by other sources.
