How Do We Get Our News? Now vs. Then

By Features Desk

Friday, September 1, 2017.

The way that people consume news and the media has changed a lot over the past century. In that time, we have seen the radio, television and finally the internet come into people's homes. Print media was once the most popular way to find out what was happening in the world, and now so many people get their news from their phones or computers. The way that things have changed is fascinating and learning about it can help you understand how the media influences people.

The Availability of News

How easy it is to access the news has changed hugely in recent years. Newspapers were once the main source of news for many, and they were at first a very slow method of delivering the news. The radio allowed for more regular and current updates, and so did TV. But it's the internet that has made the news so available to everyone. People might once have stuck to one newspaper or outlet, but now it's easy to get your news from hundreds of different sources in seconds.

Paid Media vs. "Free"

As the internet has become a more prominent provider of news, whether people pay for their news has changed too. Fewer people buy a physical or even a digital copy of a newspaper today. Many media organizations rely on advertising to support them, which can sometimes be worrying for people looking for news with as little bias as possible. Some online papers have switched to subscriptions.

The Evolution of Newspapers

It's possible that print media might not be around for a lot longer. Newspapers tend to have websites now, even though many still print paper editions. Newspapers and how we use them have changed a lot over the years.
