Journalism is different to creative writing. It is the practice of news-gathering, assessing, interviewing, taking photographs and creating news articles to present it in news-form, to provide information to the general population.
Newspapers, magazines, online media websites, radio and television all provide news through journalism.
Journalists also work in different types of beats, such as crime, health, entertainment, politics, lifestyle, metro, sport and more. Journalism can be distinguished from other types of writing, because it has identifiable characteristics and practices that are different. It separates journalist from other areas of writing, such as communications, which includes public relations and corporate writing. News and information is dispensed by media (journalists), editors, magazines, newspapers, television and radio stations.
Journalists put forwards stories that are being read for information about what is going on in their area of interest, engage them with entertaining news, or even shock them, amuse or disturb them with what is happening.
