In the modern world, obtaining news on the Internet has become an accelerating trend. Some people may argue that the traditional way of reading newspapers is much better, and yet I would this trend can overshadow it in the future.
The most obvious proof supporting my viewpoint is the decline in popularity of
traditional newspapers. Conventional newspapers’ nature which is characterized
by a thorough and time-consuming
process of editing, printing, and distributing turns to be a weakness that causes newspapers fail to meet the instant quest for news of modern news readers. In addition, due to the fact that printed newspapers are geographically limited, their reach and exposure levels are be becoming substantially lower than those of online news. Apparently, it is online press, not the traditional one, which helps news seekers all over the globe access local news as well as global news published by a variety of internationally prestigious newspapers including BBC, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal. Such availabilty of online news far outweighs that of printed news, steadily dominating the news industry.
Moreover, the advantages of online news significantly surpass those of printed newspaper. In this era of advanced technology and communication, the omnipresence of the Internet and the availability of Internet devices have boosted the popularity of online news to an extent that the concept of buying and reading a printed newspaper would become obsolete and inconvenient. Online platforms which facilitate fast-moving and immediate news updateswill certainly become the utmost solution to satisfy increasing demand and busy news seekers. Thanks to Internet-based platforms, news about an incident happening half world away could be retrieved within a few seconds after its commencement, which renders news updates one day later on conventional newspapers out of date.
In conclusion, despite the fact that printed newspapers still hold an important role, I firmly support the tendency that they will be eclipsed by online news.
