News Agency – Find Out What They Can Offer
Every day we hear of another school shooting, another terrorist attack, another earthquake or floods or whatever else we need to worry about in the world today. The only good news, however, is that these acts of terror rarely came in January, as usually the bad news comes in summer or winter. We are all too aware of what happened to former classmates in the month of December, when two teenage students opened fire at their prep school in Colorado, killing eleven people. This act of violence shocked the nation, but thankfully there were no fatalities. The bad news is, in today’s climate it’s probably not a good idea to bring guns or even shoot guns (although many other countries do) in a school or other public building.
Other news lately has involved breaking news from the Capitol Region, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. A recent article I read mentioned the National Mall, which has been closed due to the recent spate of mall shooting incidents. It also noted that the Mall was the site of one of the largest anti-war protests in recent history, one that shut down the entire mall for several days. That in itself is noteworthy events weather-wise.
Then there was the story of the National News Online’s bureau in Washington D.C., which closed down temporarily. This news agency, previously known as wire service, went on strike in part because of the state of the economy. In the past the National News Online used to publish much of its reporting via wire services, but it has been shifting more towards online sources of news since President Obama took office. If you’re interested in breaking news and world events, the news services may be just what you’re looking for.
There are other news agencies that aren’t quite so focused on actual news: the Canadian Press, Financial Times, Associated Press, Agence France- Francia, and the AP (which are not actually a news service, but rather an online news agency.) These news services offer consumer and business content, respectively. They can provide a great deal of information on current affairs, local news, science news, arts and entertainment, and a lot more.
You can use the Internet to find out more about news agencies. Research a few of the smaller ones and see what they cover. Once you know what kind of news you need, simply type the words “news” into your search engine and go through the results until you find a news agency that fits your needs. Contact them and make arrangements for them to deliver news to your home or business. Most news agencies are very easy to work with, so don’t hesitate to contact several different agencies to see which one can deliver what you need.
Find news that matters to you. You’ll know if a news agency can help you by reading their news stories or listening to their radio show.
