Is "news" singular?
How do I say it: "The news is nice" or it should be "The news are nice" ?
I've read that it's a singular and plural noun by default. Also If it's plural is there a way to refer to only one "NEWS"?

News is treated as grammatically singular (or at least I've never encountered an exception where it's treated as a plural); "only one 'news'" is generally referred to as "a news story" or "a news item".
