    To me instead of saying “are” you should say “is” but other than that they sound ok

    News may seem plural, but it is singular. With that correction (using is, not are), both would be fine and mean the same.

    Sorry, neither one is grammatically correct. 

    The meaning of the statements implies that the writer has realized that the news he/she was learning was recent, but in order to make it grammatically correct you would need to say:

    I realized that this news is very recent.

    I noticed that this news is very recent.

    ** 'is' implies that the news article is singular.

    I noticed that these news articles are very recent

    I noticed that these news articles are very recent.

    ** 'are' implies that the news articles are plural.

    "the news" is singular so "are very recent" is incorrect.

    both sentences are grammatically incorrect

    as a reader, these sentences do not make any sense.

    Neither of the two sentences is errorless.

       Some nouns ending in -s : athletics, billiards, checkers, darts , economics , ethics , gymnastics , linguistics , mathematics , measles , mumps , NEWS , phonetics , politics , rickets ,tactics are used as singular.

    they all sound okay to me

    Both are grammatically incorrect. The News is treated as singular, so "I noticed that the news was very recent"   would be the better one.

    "I realised that the news was very recent" is the more likely form in Britain .  Note 'news was' - singular.  Note British spelling of 'realised' ('realized' is American)

    I believe that in the 19th century 'news' was regarded as plural, but it has always been singular in my lifetime (born 1946).
