I see a lot of sites in all categories, which post news sometimes with images on there sites, but I also know that those sites have not made that news report.
Like car sites as a example, many different sites have the same model news or upcoming cars bla bla news listed on there site, where do they get those News/feeds is there a company where you can all that stuff and place it on your site as news as this in this example is also of interest of the Car builders. I dont think they have contacted each and every Car Company.
So how can many sites present the same news to there users.

There are several news services that allow you to specify categories or keywords and generate a newsfeed of headlines with a string of say 200 characters of the article that you can display on your website. These services are sometimes free if you are happy for them to embed text ads in the headline box.
This type of news will give the website owner absolutely zero benefits from an SEO perspective. Plus, to read the full text of an article you are directed away to the site of the original publisher.
The best option from SEO point of view is to have linguistically unique articles. That is, the story may be told in other places, but the text is uniquely put together such that it will not be deemed duplicate content. There are several bespoke news content providers, like Newsvend, but they vary in journalistic quality.
