Is the usage of "Dominate" correct?

"Elderly people usually rather gather in some public places where they can hang out with their peers discussing some debatable and controversial news dominating their countries."

    Mike, we always ask for the source, as it helps us help you. Can you tell us the source of this sentence you quote? It's far from idiomatic and doesn't appear to have been by an English-speaking writer.

    We can answer only one question at a time, so: No, you can't properly say that news dominates a country. You can say that a particular event or controversy or subject dominates the news in a country.
