News to me

"Shortage of homes for sale expected to push up prices by end of the year

But the bad news is they could fall again next year"

This was a headline in today's Times newspaper.

How has the concept of news been so corrupted that the word is now used to describe things that haven't happened and may never happen? News bulletins are occupied by predictions. Yesterday's news is about tomorrow.
