In the given study, we analyzed different approaches to the principles of news selection and identified the most frequent ones for Kazakhstan: spatial and emotional proximity. Against this background, Socially and politically important news was selected on the reforms of the Unified Accumulative Pension Fund (UAPF) of Kazakhstan. We considered the issue of the dynamics of the communicative and linguistic transformation of the information occasion in print and online publications of Kazakhstan. Four main stages in the dynamics of news distribution were identified: selection, origin, active dissemination, and extinction. Publications on the topic during the period of active dissemination were classified according to semantic characteristics: description of the actions of official bodies, description of the actions of the people, advice, analytics, and authoritative opinion. In addition, this period was characterized by a wide stylistic range, where the frequent linguistic means were keywords of the topic, verbs of speech, interrogative constructions, orientation metaphors, accurate and approximate numerical data, and evaluative vocabulary.
