News Quizzes & Trivia

No news is good news, right? But then how would you know about everything that happens? How is news spread? Is it via word of mouth, newspapers, television, the internet or by radio? What about all of them? But how much do you know?

Can you answer how the news stations find out when things happen? Can you tell what gets news first, the papers, television or radio? Can you name the main news channels? Are you worthy to be called the "person that knows things", or have you become as old as yesterday's paper?
