Some people think that newspapers are the best way to get news. However, others believe that they can get news better through other media platforms. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Newspapers are considered as an accurate source to get news, while others believe that other media platforms are more effective way to spread the news. In my opinion, it depends on age factors of people because people taste changes by passing the time. For more than a century, newspapers have become more popular with the public. A large number of people, especially elderly people have a tendency to follow the news via newspapers because they still read the paper form of news on a daily basis and some of whom just read a specific newspaper column and it seems that they do not want to change their reading habits. In addition, newspaper news is more reliable than other media because they are written by professional journalists and checked or even censored according to the audience's tastes and editorial rules by editors, so it has published via valid sources. Although the newspapers are known as a valuable source to get news, their audiences read the news later. There are many other sources that spread the news online and those who live in other countries can follow international news very easily without cost, consequently, many people will be involved in the news of other countries. For example, in my country, a 22-year girl was killed by police security because of her hijab one month ago and it spread quickly in social media like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. It provoked mass protests against the government and many prominent people all around the world supported them by expressing their emotions. In conclusion, this is true that news in newspapers is much more reliable than other media and mostly elderly people are interested in newspapers because of their reading habits, while others prefer using online social media to get news online.
