What news?

The new in news is really what it’s all about. The news is what is new. I read a book about the differences between the UK and the US. The author pointed to how obsessed the US is with new-ness, how we named our cities new this or that, how we ask each other what’s new, how our advertising skews toward the New and Improved, how we strive ever onward toward the NEW thing, the NEW idea, the NEW horizon.
