News: Concise Oxford Dictionary defines News as "new or interesting information" or "fresh events reported'". In short, all that a newspaper contains is not news. Only episodic information in it is news. These may pertain to current political affairs, sports and games, economic and commercial activities, arts and culture and socio-political engagements. These are all episodes or events and, therefore, it is said that news is episodic information that is ephemeral in character having, however, historical value.
