    in / on the news

    Can you say "you see gang fights in the news" or does it have to be "on the news"?

    Re: in / on the news

    Both are used. For me "in the news" refers to the general news media (newspapers, websites etc) and "on the news" refers to TV news broadcasts.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
