Breaking news is a term used to describe timely and significant events that are typically unexpected or unforeseen. These events often have a major impact on people's lives and can be either positive or negative in nature. Breaking news stories are typically covered by the mainstream media as they unfold, giving the public access to information in real-time. While breaking news can refer to any type of event, it is most commonly used in relation to catastrophic events such as natural disasters, terrorist attacks, or political disasters. In these situations, the need for accurate and up-to-the-minute information is paramount. Traditional news outlets such as television, radio, and print media are typically the first to report on breaking news stories as they happen. However, in recent years social media has become an increasingly important source of information for people looking for the latest updates on current events.
