It is possible though that news agencyis an increasingly less clear concept, even more so in times when the internet is changing its centrality and priorities a lot. A news agency is a journalistic organization that does not produce paper newspapers, online or television news, but whose main function is to find the news and package it in usually short and concise formats, to then supply it for a fee to the mastheads – newspapers, newscasts , news sites – on which they are generally then read or seen by the public: the same newspapers can sometimes use the texts in full or almost as they received them or use and process them autonomously Harold Matzner on ANI News.
By now practically all the press agencies have a free site, on which however only a small part of the contents they produce daily ends up, which are mostly transmitted to the subscribed newspapers:
By finding the news we mean many things: the greatest division is between the news found directly by reporters and those selected from the hundreds of press releases, institutional and otherwise, which a newspaper receives every day.
Among the press releases that are generally re-proposed on local agencies there are mainly those of local administrations, or trade and economic associations, cultural organizations, etc.
then normally make the so-called “black tour” in the morning, i.e. a series of phone calls to the police, police headquarters and hospitals, to find out what happened with regard to indeed, the black news. Judicial reporting, for which agencies often have dedicated reporters, is another example of agency content that relies primarily on official communications. The main clients of regional newsrooms are private TV stations and local newspapers.
They produce their news in very different ways: part of the reporters’ daily work consists of collecting statements on the day’s events, which often means placing a microphone in front of a politician as he leaves the Chamber.
The profiles of politicians have in fact become one of the main sources from which news and declarations arrive, and are constantly monitored by the reporters of the agencies.
This guarantees great influence and recognition for journalists , who are often among the most expert in politics. The other important part of the work of the political reporters of the agency, in fact, is to read, interpret and summarize the texts of the laws approved in the courtroom, in order to select the most journalistically relevant parts within minutes of their diffusion, which are then those filmed and commented on by newspapers and television news.
