Has the explosion of available information made media coverage better or worse? Explain your answer.
I think that the explosion of today’s media coverage has its bad and good points. The fact that we have the ability to see news updates virtually anywhere (even with a cellphone) has made media better than worse in my opinion. I like how I can have news feeds sent directly to my email inbox, while getting an update of the post on my phone. I used to hate waiting until the six ‘o clock news just to see what was going on in my community. Either I would have to get up early to see the morning news, buy a newspaper, or like I said before, wait till the six ‘o clock news. Personally, I do not watch news on the television. News is more tainted with the same gossip that every other source is talking about, just using different ways to point out the same hot, new story. I don’t want to have to watch the whole news show at 6 ‘o clock just to hear the stories I want to hear about, I would rather pick what I want of the internet.
