News From 2016

We may almost be in 2018 but we are still seeing the effects of some of the major events of 2016. It was a year like no other and there were many newsworthy events that took place throughout the year. Five of the most notable news stories of the year are discussed below.

Death Of David Bowie

The year got off to a sad start with the death of David Bowie in January. The singer passed away after a short battle with cancer. Unfortunately his death was only the first in a long line of famous people that died in 2016. It seemed to many people that more well known people died in this year than in any other year in living memory.


The result of the referendum in the UK to leave the European Union was one that was met with great shock. 52% of those who voted chose to leave and it was a very close call. Almost immediately after the result had been announced protests began about the result and Prime Minister David Cameron who had supported the remain campaign resigned. The process of leaving the European Union has now begun but negotiations have been difficult.

President Trump

Another shock in the world of politics came when Donald Trump was elected as the President of the United States ahead of Hilary Clinton. The millionaire had no previous experience in any kind of political role and is well known for his outspoken views. During his time as president he has been involved in a number of controversies such as his travel ban and links between Russia and senior members of his team.

Worldwide Terror Attacks

There were a number of terror attacks that took place over the year in many different countries around the world. Hundreds of people lost their lives in these attacks and barely a month went by without another attack taking place. Notable attacks include the bombings in Brussels on a subway train and at the airport. Lorries were also used to run people down in attacks that took place in France and Germany.

Queen Elizabeth Turns 90

Queen Elizabeth turned 90 in 2016 and there were a number of celebrations that were held all over the UK to commemorate this occasion. She is the oldest serving monarch and also the one with the longest reign. Despite turning 90 she still makes regular public appearances and travels all over the world.

Reading about 2017 News – The Highlights

Age of Controversy

Some people are interested in 2017 news – the highlights. Other people have been trying to avoid the news throughout 2017. The current political situation has become terribly divisive. American politics in particular have always been contentious, and it seems that this is a new climate of extreme opinions vying with one another. A lot of people are nervous about the future, and they might be interested in waiting to see what happens next without really paying attention to all of the daily variations in the news at present.

The year 2017 has been market by a lot of endless scandals. The Trump administration was under investigation more or less before it even came into power. There have been a lot of political and media figures under investigation in this current political climate as well, making a lot of people feel as if they cannot trust anyone at present. Many of the political and media figures of the twentieth century are being exposed all the time, and this is causing a lot of people to feel as if a new era of history has emerged. The twentieth century itself appears to be dying in more ways than one. As the 2020’s get closer and closer, a lot of people are trying to see what the years hold and what will characterize the twenty-first century.

Reliable News

This is the era of ‘fake news.’ It seems that almost everyone is questioning the veracity of everyone else’s claims. This can make things difficult for the people who are trying to figure out what is true and only what is true. People who are still trying to be apolitical in the current climate are going to find themselves swimming against the current, so to speak. This will continue to get harder and harder as more emotional issues get brought to the surface.

Media scandals are becoming so frequently that people can literally log into Twitter and see new names named every single time. These scandals are occurring among figures on the right and the left. While this might seem like an era in which the United States, the United Kingdom, and many other societies have entered a new wave of conservatism, the progressive backlash against all of the recent conservative victories demonstrate that it is truly a time period where everyone is at odds and not an era where any single side is in power in reality.

Finding a way to get real data on any of this is difficult. Ultimately, people will just have to consult with a lot of different news sources in order to gain some perspective on this all. Sometimes, reading news sources from other countries can help. The BBC might have more objective information on American news than a lot of American online newspapers. American online newspapers might have more objective information on British news as well than the BBC will in this climate. Finding some light in a world of heat can be a struggle, and it seems that a lot of people are at least in on this struggle together.
