More and more people no longer read the newspaper or watch TV programs to get news. They get news about the world through the Internet. Is this a positive or negative development?
01、With news online dispersing like wildfire [独立主格作状语], the heyday of the newspaper industry and television news programs has gone. I tend to think this trend irresistible and positive [表态].This [逻辑衔接]is partly because the Internet — a vast storehouse of digital information — is convenient for people to dig for previous news, whereas [对比] neither the printed paper material nor the TV programs are easy to preserve for information searching.
02、The mass quantity of news online[逻辑衔接] also benefits from its fast update speed. This [逻辑衔接] edge allows netizens to obtain any story from the blog of a witness the second it happens, which is remarkable and more importantly, life-saving when disasters happen. Newspapers and TV programs on the other hand [逻辑衔接] need time for editing, censoring, printing, and delivering, extending people’s access to news about the world to at least the next day.
03、Despite these [逻辑衔接], news online is still portable, with palm-sized technological gadgets only. Typically, for people in a hurry in the morning, convenience and mobility are always preferred, and this is why [逻辑衔接] they would like to browse breaking news from a handhold phone on the subway rather than spend minutes in front of the TV or carry a thick stack of paper materials out.
04、However[逻辑衔接], the demerits of accessing e-news cannot be denied. To get more traffic, some news editors no longer interview in person but fabricate, releasing inauthentic news online. Consuming such information [逻辑衔接], the public is hard not to be misled.
05、In conclusion, I think the growth of online newspaper is positive. The main point is that government should superintend the released information and news writers should have a fact-finding attitude.
