Advantages of Online News Broadcasting (online newspaper)
In the developing countries, like United States of America, there are many people who visit the internet and mostly the World Wide Website and that means that a large audience can be reached. The internet media can put out vital articles prior to them being printed and shun being poached away. There is no stiff business rivalry since not many competitors prevail in that field. The places that can be re-reviewed are found in easily accessible formats. The medium through which it reaches the reader is faster than the other forms of media outlets and therefore it shuns the media giants from being at the helm of controlling the news. They exhibit inimitable places where the people that are concerned to use them can enjoy glimpsing and therefore desire. The areas that define the media of online news broadcasting, more so the website, offer the publishers of the materials the golden opportunities of starting up indexes, listings and databases to the readers and that fete cannot be achieved if the media used to pass over the information was maybe in print form (that’s in the case of articles and publications)
Disadvantages of online news broadcasting
That which has got its windward side (positive purposes) must have its leeward side too (the negative impacts).Therefore as there are so many advantages of the online news broadcasting, so does the disadvantages abound. Among the demerits are : the medium is expensive and the parties concerned with zapping people with the existence of the clue digs deeper into their pockets whilst advertising at radio and other advertisement materials such as print-outs. The medium has to be mutually dependent on perfectly working software if at all it has to show cutting edge products. The other demerit is that people detest reading into the Websites for long moments. The publishing workers are veered from the print articles. The people in the various industries do not desire to engage in the new form of medium due to lack of the expatriates in delivering the processes and therefore opts for the accustomed methods of printing. There have been lapsing profits and also declining circulations of the daily newspapers. The accuracy of the materials cannot vouched be vouched for and therefore are mostly not stable because the technology of the medium changes now and then. Also, the method tampers with the creative format of news presentations and therefore the end result is that the norm of the news becomes full of eye-catching press releases about the politics, deceit and other unfounded propagandas.(Martin)
The future of online news broadcasting
Some corporations that use this form of medium, are figuring out how they can upgrade their services and this fete can (and is achieved) by introducing hard-copy printed papers still using the electronic paper. Some researchers have taken a mighty leap forward prior to the introduction of a unique type of electronic ink version of the original print outs of which would be passed over the subscribers.
There should be special news regulatory bodies to vet the accuracy of the news that are proffered by the news broadcasters where the media companies that are found to have based their news on lies could be taken legal action to shun off the trend. The media companies could be pressed to reveal the sources of their information and (or) references. In this form of broadcast, the supplies of news materials such as newspaper would be laid off from their jobs (retrenchment) since they would not be required anymore. Instead of being retrenched the concerned companies could upgrade their education and they would feature in the new form of news broadcasting medium.
