There are New Types of News Coming
1. Late-Breaking News - everyone likes to have the latest news. In the past you had just a very few sources for news alerts. Now with the proliferation of smartphones, anyone can be a news reporter. Twitter and similar notification type services are just the beginning. When you see traditional news media like CNN using Twitter, that is handy, but it is still part of 'traditional' news. What is coming is news, by for for the people. Someone at the scene of an accident or a Tsunami or Murder can report the news faster than any agency ever could. Where will this kind of news reporting go? How far can it be developed?
2. News Forecasting - this sounds hard to imagine but just think of how good weather forecasting has become! News forecasting is not only possible, its here now. There are university professors with working demo's of news forecasting services. Our future website, NewsForecasting.com, will explore what kind of news forecasts are possible.
3. Objective News - this is even harder than the above. Can the news be objective? We intend to find out. We are going to start an experiment in news to directly show the differences between the Conservative and the Liberal views. We will have well-educated writers from each of these political views write the same article; the same exact news, but from different viewpoints. Then the reader can decide! So checkout ObjectiveNews.com soon!
