How News Happens

A NEWSWIRE distribution is a press release sent out to major media outlets by a commercial newswire service or news agency. Marketing and public relations professionals use newswire distributions with the aim of generating coverage on major news outlets, increasing brand awareness, reach, and visibility, and in some cases to boost search engine rankings. The Big Three broadcast television networks produce morning and evening national newscasts. These newscasts are focused on world news, national news, and sometimes local news items that have some national significance.

The last time I checked in on the U.S. election, I took great comfort in the tea leaves.
