Print newspaper vs Internet news

Due to the widespread use of internet nowadays. It's been a long time since I have touched a broadsheet newspaper and tabloid. I usually get my news on television or in the internet.

How long since you have last read or touched a newspaper? Personally, I have more trust in the content in the broadsheet newspaper than the content found on the internet. Most of the journalist in these fields has integrity and I'm pretty sure that the facts that they are presenting are well researched and studied.

I use public means of transport and occassionaly I find a newspaper when I set near the driver. The majority of the drivers in my nation prefer to have a newspaper with them so that they can read as they rest waiting for passengers. There are also numerous times when I go to the bank and when the queue is long i pick a newspaper from the ones availed to pass time. With that being said, the last time I read one was today morning.

I feel very comfortable while reading a newspaper because its from a trusted source than internet news where false information can be spread, newspaper is mostly available in areas where patient is needed to be used to pass time.

This is so true my friend. With so many websites and blogs especially mushrooming each and every other day all looking for cheap publicity false romours are spread easily online. It is always wise to rely on a offline source of information.

Offline source is best information still. Online news has lots of fake and unreliable news. I still prefer the news that is in the newspaper.

When I land my hands on a great piece of newspaper one that I know comes from a reputable company that is I will always spend my precious time browsing through each page. You will get amazing content that is all true and credible rather than having to rely on hearsay.

I do blame Google Adsense for the flow of false information across the net all in the sake of making a cool cash but also they can't be blame too because the idea of Google wasn't to help circulate false info but to help blogger in one way or the other to support them.

I think Google should help remove false information or ban any blogger that post false new.

The problem is that there are too many blogs nowadays and google would have a lot of work to do if they were to monitor what was fake and what is not. This is also difficulty when the news are localized and google does not know what happens in a remote town.

That least strict law and warning should be imposed on those caught so that others can learn from them.

Yea, your statement is correct on that but google should try and monitor the once they can.

They should obviously and I think that they try to do their level best. However, I also think that apart from the big towns and celebrities or public figures whose information can be verified easily or investigations can be done and the individuals interrogated there are other minor issues that google cannot manage alone.

This is why it is always wise to verify any source before you can fully believe them. I do not like to take anything as hundred percent correct until I can verify that it is credible. If information is tainted then the whole story is corrupted.

I can't remember when was the last time. I consume the news by watching news channels and reading reviews online. It's much more convinient than buying the printed paper. It is harder to tell which paper tells the truth since alot are just paid to sell. So I find it better to consume the news through the net and by watching the shows. That way I could scope for a wider view on the topic than just a one sided story printed every now and then.

I think the internet share fake media more than printed media, now anyone can open blog for free and what people will be looking for is how to earn or draw traffic to that blog, that is when all kind of false attractive news will be sent online to make you click there link and earn.

I couldn't agree more to this. I prefer to use the television and internet as mediums to stay updated with the latest news. Of course, there are fake news in the internet, but so are in the newspaper. As citizens, it's our responsibility to ensure that a certain news comes from a trusted source before believing. I just think that the internet news has the advantage as it is up to date and more convenient.

I can't remember the last time I held a newspaper but I'm sure it's not that long ago. For me, personally I would like to choose the Newspaper however I am also concerned with the well being of our nature simply because alot of trees are being cut to produce paper every year. And so, I guess, online news are better not because they're much more credible, but because they're eco-friendly.

Actually, the main reason why I don't stress myself with reading newspapers is because most times before the papers are published and printed out to be distributed by the newspaper vendors, I would have already read most of the news online. So, the question is if I have the time to re-read what I have already read online on its printed version.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

jaybee19

True. I've also experienced that a lot of times. I wasn't actually aware about it until I became a frequent reader of online news. I guess printing press/publishing companies only print newspapers for people who doesn't have time to go online (like the Jeepney drivers here in the Philippines) because I don't think they still have the passion to reach out to the younger generations who're always online.

Yea, printing press should keep on printing news paper because the world still have people who does not have access to internet and those old people who in one way or the other are not in the position to browse the net.

Exactly. Especially in third world countries where most adults at their forties and above don't know how to access the web or worse don't have an access to one. I guess reading news online is a common thing for first world countries tho because my brother in law is an Australian and he reads news articles online instead of reading it from the newspaper.

This is a valid point. YOu can easily visit the site of the firm publishing the news and read what they will publish on the coming day's news. This is actually less tiring than having to rely on a newspaper vendor while waiting to know of some important information. However, you should know that they do not put everything online and sometimes they give you snippets so that you can go and purchase their paper.

Well I would say you are really funny but I love your decision because we need the trees and they are eco-friendly. I still feel more trees are planted every day.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

jaybee19

Thanks mate. I also find my explanation a bit hilarious because it's uncommon for people to actually think first of the environment when making decisions because practicality will always be the primary factor when they make decisions. However, because I was thinking of a more original reply, I came up with saving the environment instead (but I'm genuine about it, I promise). And unfortunately, no, a lot of trees are being cut everyday compared to the small number of trees that are being planted. Also, even if we plant a lot of trees everyday, it would still take a lot of time for them to grow.

Yea true. It takes years or decades to grow a tree but it takes just some minutes to cut down a tree, your point is very valid because no matter the fertilizer used to grow those tree it cant grow the same way it is being cut down.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

jaybee19

Precisely. It's actually disappointing and fascinating at the same time that scientists discovered/invented cloning already but can't make a fertilizer that can make trees grow faster. I guess they still can't do it at this time or maybe forever because honestly it's just too impossible. And so, I am really concerned with the number of trees we currently have on our planet because it might definitely be gone sooner than we are expecting because of massive developments that most developing countries are making/planning.

You should also factor the fact that it is not all the companies who use fresh tree materials to make the papers to be used for newspaper publishing. There are others who rely on recycled papers and in the manner help to clean the environment.

Thanks for pointing this out mate. I wasn't actually thinking about those companies because it's more common for printing companies to use fresh tree materials and it's much more known to the public. However, yes, there are companies like this and they should be given recognition for their efforts on saving the environment.

You've got a very good point. Imagine all the newspapers combined from all around the world, how many trees could be affected by them? I am not saying that I don't have a share of fault because I bought newspapers before. It's just that it's better to save the world while we can.

Thanks miss theresejane. That's true, I am also guilty about it specially that I am fond of burning newspapers during elementary whenever I and my siblings clean the open space in front of our house where a big tree is located and its dry leaves fall down - we always burn the dry leaves afterwards.

I haven't picked up a paper for a couple of months, but I do prefer them to online news. If I get the chance to read a paper I will and now there are so many free ones (Metro), but the writing isn't always that good and the news is a little trashy at times.

If I am in a coffee bar or cafe and there are papers I will read them there, and when I am in a hotel I will always read a paper. However, online news tend to be more up to date, and that respect can be more accurate.

I think that's the last time I read a newspaper in print too. Whenever I stay at a hotel they usually put a copy of the day's newspaper outside my door every morning, and then I usually flip through it as I'm having my coffee to start the day.

Other than that though, I really can't recall the last time would have read a hard copy newspaper.

Ive last read tabloid or news paper is way back 2014, haha because since internet has been more accesible. I choose internet news so far in our country, news in big companies in print newspaper or even tv news are being manipulated of the higher posistion in politics. I know in internet news is having a high risk when it comes the fake news but if your a smart reader you can annalyze it and also youve been aware in it. In Internet news, sometimes you can see the real situation of news because of concern citizen is also inputting of news rather on the print news paper.

It often makes me think that most of the time, these print newspapers only get published once the news is almost obsolete! News is such a dynamic, changing thing that being able to access it online is the most convenient way to stay up to date.

I do wonder if we'll see print newspapers completely phased out within the next decade or two.

We are not really being frugal at home when I say that we get the news from the online version of 3 major newspapers. The reason is not the cost of the newspaper but the freshness of the news. The online versions usually have breaking news reports that are not in the printed version. But in fairness to the printed version, my husband still buys one printed newspaper because he loves to do the crossword puzzle during bedtime.

Well, honestly, due to today's generation and the modern culture of spreading the news... I'd prefer internet news. Why? It is because I find more legit information from the internet than the printed one. Also, in my situation, I can easily get news just using my mobile devices so it is also very helpful to me. And of course, I have taught my self on checking what's the legit one from aren't too and that is a good thing for us because not all news being delivered on TV and newspaper are all true.

In this age where fake news is so rampant everywhere, its so hard to find a reliable news especially on the internet nowadays. So I'd rather prefer the traditional broadsheet and tabloid newspaper because of their credibility. I do still read news online but sometimes it gives me a hard time to figure out its legitimacy. In traditional newspaper their columnist are credible and responsible for their craft. So, for me newspapers are better than online news.

One cannot escape from fake news even if in the printed newspaper. Some pieces found in printed newspaper are sourced from internet news and there are news that are heavily influenced or cooked up to the benefit of certain parties. In this modern day, one is not immune to fake news even printed newspaper. The most important is that readers have to employ due diligence when making conclusion from the things he read.

Most of my news sources these days are online news based. The fact of the matter is that immediacy in receiving news is huge, and print sources just can't compete with online sources in that regard.

I also think that online news sources allow you to pick and choose the news sources that fit your needs. For instance, want more news about politics? Pick a news source that has a heavy coverage on that. Want news about sports? Again, you might pick a sports news related website, which has a more singular focus on that topic.

Honestly, the last time that I have held a sheet of a newspaper was yesterday. Well, it's not what you think it is, I held it because it was a cover for a fruit which I bought at the market. This is the sad reality that we don't really buy printed newspapers nowadays because they are also published online. Most newspaper companies have their own soft copy versions posted online, which makes the demand for printed newspaper decrease.

I prefer internet news, it can save the environment by preventing trees from being cut. And after reading the print the paper will lose value, might become a tool for drying puddles, could be a trash in the sidewalk, unlike the internet news where there is no need to dispose it. Another advantage is in the internet news you see comments of other fellow citizens.

Lately I've noticed that some of the newspapers which in the past demanded a subscription fee to access content no longer do that opting instead not to publish some of the articles which will be in the newspaper.

I know this because I read newspapers almost daily. It's not because I buy them though. Some of my workmates always buy newspapers and when there is something interesting in the papers that isn't on the net, I'll take a look. Nonetheless I prefer the net as a news source because I don't have to spend any money to read the news.

I personally think that internet news are more accessible and it is quicker to get updates through social medias. Whenever I look for news, I just search it over google since it is just in the palm of my hand with the help of my phone. Maybe it is really time to utilize the internet and make news or announcements over it.

It's more relaxing to read a newspaper and I also realize that not all newspaper features are available in their online version. I get to read newspapers on a regular basis though because the office has a daily broadsheet subscription. Besides that, we can also read newspapers in banks and in some fast food branches. However, I rarely buy newspapers myself because they're costly considering that my favorite newspaper has a free online version. Internet content can also replace most newspaper features.

When you say internet, I assume that you are reading the online version of the newspapers. That's what I do every morning, I check the 3 major newspapers in the internet and scanning the headline just to get a gist of what's happening. More often than not, there is nothing very interesting so I spend just a few minutes but when there is something interesting then I read the entire article.

The last time I read a broadsheet newspaper was when I was preparing for a newswriting contest back in high school. Ever since then, I relied on the internet to be updated on the current events. Print newspapers are harder to carry around and read compared to mobile newspaper sites which can display tens of thousands of articles and for free, at that. In addition, breaking news are easily added to the website's page, and developing stories may be updated real time, With the advent of microblogging sites like Twitter, news is spread at an even faster rate.

The problem here, however, is the spread of fake news sites. Hence, another important thing to do is to educate the people on how to spot non-trustworthy websites compared to verified, authentic ones, although this may take quite a bit of practice.

I think I would try to visit our main library and read again some newspaper since it would surely comes back the old memories.

Print newspaper if you ask me. There are just some thing in life that you need to keep old-school. Print newspaper is one of those things. Very soon the internet will completely take over and all of those good old-school things will disappear. When that happens you will regret it.

I agree with you but some people argues that it will be beneficial to the environment since printed newspaper needs paper to produce but there are new technologies nowadays where they could use recycled papers for newspaper and can use trees for papers that could grow in 5 years or less.

Well our elementary school has newspapers where they publish best works written or drawn by students (aged from 7 to 14 years old). They also have a page with photography that are taken by the kids, riddles, jokes and trending news and movies. I never thought kids can be that good in writing poems! I love that they encourage them in that way. Unfortunately, these are the only print newspaper I use. As for the internet I read it only sometimes.

I love both really, printed newspapers are basically more on the news in our locality or our city it basically more on what's happening around me rather than all over the world, news in the internet are the mix of both local and international but really today I avoid reading the news especially the ones about killing, rape, killings. I just don't want to let that get in my mind and be negative towards life.
