The Rise of the New Media

News, the word itself, is defined in the Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary Tenth Addition as a “general information bulletin board”. The meaning of the word is something presented with a lot of information wrapped up in a package of opinion or feeling. It is a type of “feeding frenzy” with news and opinions being presented to us almost every day. And then there is the media; print, television and the internet, which cover the actual events that occur

All forms of media have their own set of news sources and reporting that are relevant to their field of specialization. Journalistic reporting on human activity, while not totally independent, is normally intended to inform rather than promote and is generally objective in nature. However, a journalist’s personal opinion or interpretation of events may cloud or change the accuracy of certain facts and figures presented. Examples of this would be a report by a journalist on a natural disaster, which might include pictures and video of the flooding and or damage, and a report on a politician that was criticized for some action.

When you look at the two sides of journalism, you will see a lot of conflict of interest. A journalist has to take sides in stories that are slanted toward either one side or the other. When it comes to traditional journalism, one side is the newspaper and the other is the newspaper owner. This is because the rules of the game are set up by the newspaper company and they are the ones that stick with them.

However, news organizations have changed dramatically over the years. Many newspaper companies now own multiple daily newspapers and magazines around the country. They also own television stations and even radio stations that are syndicated around the country. Many times, they have both hard and soft news divisions. In this case, hard news is the type that is published in the newspapers and is more serious, while soft news is often featured on television by various hosts.

The difference between hard and soft news is very simple. Hard news is all the articles and news reports that are published in the newspaper that is not reported elsewhere or is news only. Soft news is any type of article that is printed on the front page of the newspaper and any other place that the newspaper has placed it for reference. It is normally opinion based and is designed to inform rather than influence.

While there are many benefits to be had from a career as a journalist, it is important to understand that there are a lot of potential pitfalls and negative consequences to it. Many traditional newspapers face a dwindling number of readership because of the internet, and they are in serious competition with online newspapers and magazines for ad dollars. Many times, the tone of the articles or stories published in these newspapers will be different from the original reporting that was done by the journalist. This has led to the accusation that some journalists are simply pushing a political agenda or editorialized content and not always providing true information. There is no debating the fact that technology and new media have changed the face of journalism forever, but there are also many good aspects to the industry, as well.

As long as the print media remains in business, there will be a need for newspapers. The only real way to lose newspaper sales is if everyone switches to television news. At least for the time being, broadcast media is here to stay. Although technology may cause some changes in how newspapers publish their news, they will always have a solid readership among the general public. Whether people love it or hate it, the news industry will always have a place in our society.
