Print Media and T.V. News

by Karuna

In spite of 24-hours news on T.V., the morning newspaper still has not lost its relevance in the daily life of a common man. Although both are of equal importance, each has its own benefits.

Let us draw a comparison between the two to see why either or both are special.

Television news caters to a larger and more inclusive audience, such as the visually impaired, deaf and dumb, etc. Newspapers on the other hand, encourages reading habits, which eventually becomes leisure activity for senior citizens.

While newspapers are traditional and time tested, i.e., one can rely on them for accurate news, television news are quick with live presentation and reports. The breaking news is brought to the viewer as soon as an incident occurs. Moreover, television news is engaging and interests people of all ages.

Newspapers, on the contrary, are devoid of sensationalism and come up with truly thought provoking editorials. The morning newspaper is a relief to someone who likes to stay up to date with current affairs. Now that it is available on digital platform, one can access the news anytime anywhere.

Hence, it is suffice to say that both T.V. news channels and the morning newspapers are and always will be a common man’s every day life’s need.
