“We all know that you are news - but are you king? King of the Jews?"
(Scene on YouTube). The line comes after 1:11 in the video.)
What does the
news word mean in this context?
I searched and found this meaning in Oxford:
a person or thing considered interesting enough to be reported in the news. "Chanel became the hottest news in fashion"
But I'm still unsure if it applies in this context or whether it may be a kind of slang from the 60s?
