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.
People have differing opinions about various means of getting news. Although there are good arguments in favour of following news through newspapers, I believe that it is better to get news from other media platforms like TV news channels. The option of tracking news through dailies can be attractive for several reasons. Newspapers news is usually accompanied by analysis and it is not limited to a series of headlines and sentences. Various newspapers with their own approaches, employ experts and analysts to comprehensively investigate the news which can lead to the increase in the analytical understanding of ordinary people. Furthermore, although rumours may spread through many platforms, newspapers, especially credible ones, are less likely to release fake news since their responsible authors and reporters prepare news based on evidence and documentation. Accordingly, people may find dailies more reliable than other platforms. On the other hand, I believe that tracking news through other media platforms like television or social media is a better choice for a couple of reasons. The most significant feature of the mentioned platforms is their ability to publish news as soon as it occurs. As these platforms are providing news 24 hours a day, they are obliged to quickly notify the society about various incidents. Additionally, news can be followed anywhere through these easy-to-use platforms. Unlike newspapers that are sold in stores, by very simple actions such as visiting news websites or using mobile apps, news can be tracked through these platforms even at home. For the reasons mentioned above, it seems to me that media platforms like TV news channels or websites are better means of following the news than reading newspapers.
