24-hour news cycle
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
The 24 hour news cycle (or 24/7 news cycle) refers to 24-hour investigation and reporting of news, concomitant with fast-paced lifestyle of modern societies. The vast amount of news resources available in modern society have increased competition for audience and advertiser attention, prompting media providers to deliver the latest news in the most compelling manner in order to remain ahead of competitors. Television, radio, print, online, and now apps for news all have different broadcasters who want to remain relevant to their audiences and deliver news first.
