The work of Journalist is an orbit reward for all of the humanities from created. The work of journalist is related with Journalism. All of we are well known about the definition of Journalism or Mass Communication.
Some of the famous media institutions and scholars define Journalism as a craft, a profession and even as a cultural industry and a business. It is the activity of gathering, assessing and creating and presenting news and information. It is also the product of these activities. Those who practice Journalism are known as journalists.

So, for the first time the subject and functioning of Journalism came into force. It is the work of journalists to create powerful, intimate stories that takes people beyond the boundaries of their own life experiences and connect them with the current situations and reshaping world on a daily basis. Journalists in search of news sometimes needs to be a reporter, photographer, videographer as well as an editor and producer of stories.
That every event happening which makes a sense of social understanding and makes a difference into day-to-day lives of People, qualifies as news. There are some elements required for the qualification and acceptance of a piece of message or information as a news. So, as per of being it such diverse and dynamic there stands no proper definition for a news.
A news needs to be worthy. It should possess some significance and value of understanding. Not every piece of message and information can be accepted as news. That is why, a news requires worthiness, importance, credibility and authenticity. It should be current in time, it should not be stale (outdated). Even if it is stale and old every time, when it is rewritten something new should come up into that. That is what we call news timeliness.
Whatever information is fed to the masses as news primarily requires to be pretty and very much credible. An information given vaguely is nothing but a fake news. A news needs to first confirmed wholly and then conveyed to the masses. Because, a news is like a promise of truth being given to the public.
“And say: Truth has now arrived, and Falsehood has perished: for Falsehood by its very own nature is bound to perish.” Holy Quran: Chapter 17 Verse 81.
Journalists are social workers and work for betterment of society.
