    Cool there is+news?

    Hello!

    Which is correct, please?

    - There is a lot of bad news.

    -There a lot of bad news.

    Can we ever say "many news"?

    Thank you

    - There is a lot of bad news. Correct

    -There a lot of bad news. Wrong

    Can we ever say "many news"? Not in the sense I think you mean. We could say 'It was reported by many news agencies'.
