Newspapers are being replaced by television and college dorms are a perfect example of how technology has almost surpassed the need to daily newspapers. Students at American universities get a free copy of the New York Times and the Washington Post but most don’t really bother as they prefer catching the news on some 42 inch plasma that is placed in the TV lounge. So here, you wouldn’t find discarded sections of folded newspapers. Even if somebody wants to flip through the pages of the newspapers, it is primarily for different reasons such as Sudoku or comic clips. With news being made easy with online access today, eco friendly people have even more reasons to avoid newspapers and opt for online news
Yet, we cannot deny that there are homes who like to start their day with newspapers and a cup of coffee. Whether you pass the bucks to their customary way of living over the years or the seamless accessibility that comes with simply picking up the newspapers from the porch, the significance of staying active on the toes has not really dwindled in any sense. But then again, the question arises if online media is really marching towards replacing newspapers and television boxes in our real life?
While the convenience of flipping through the pages of a newspaper for headlines, sports sections or economic updates cannot be laid low, we should nowhere be pinned down for inclining towards the online media. Whether you sing the praises for the on-the-go comfort of turning your advanced digital devices or shrug your shoulders that online media has matched the strengths with the usual newspaper, the fact remains that everyone needs the information.
Although the soaring significance of online media is pretty easy to have our eyes on, we should never overlook the effortless approach that comes with reading everyday newspapers. After all, there are certain old things that always remain gold. Nonetheless, we wouldn’t be off track for stating that online media has transmogrified in a great manner over the years – right from summarizing tons of news pages to a short context to bringing worldwide headlines right on your device and desktop. In a simpler way, things have indeed gotten better with time (though, today’s young generation would give a few extra brownie points to the online media for its easy accessibility and seamless news delivery). But, the matter of fact still remains – who really cares whether it’s online media or general newspapers and television boxes as far as we are rightly being informed about what’s happening outside our doors?
