DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that prior to literacy, town criers held the responsibility of spreading news, announcements, and information to people within the town? Town criers usually wore garish outfits to make them stand out amongst the crown and often carried a trumpet to call the attention of the crowds before making announcements. The English word “news” was coined during the 14th century as a special use and a plural form of the word “new”. Although the exact time and place wherein this term originated from isn’t necessarily agreed upon, evidence suggests that cultures around the world have found an avenue for people to share stories about new and information that are deemed interesting.

Ancient civilizations have practiced questioning travelers for news as a matter of priority. In ancient Greece, daily happenings and major events were spread within their respective “agoras” or public forums. Nowadays, plenty of print and online platforms offer their audiences a chance to catch up on important events, happenings, and gossip. The news is usually spread by word-of-mouth, which oftentimes causes them to become untrustworthy as information can become warped as it passes by from one person to another, making it difficult for fact-checkers and truth seekers to determine if a certain piece of information is true or not.
