News is something that we listen to, watch or read daily to gain the knowledge of the activities and current situation of our area, city and country. News is an abbreviation for North, East, West and south i.e. news is something that covers every direction and each part of the world. I do not think that it is needed to explain the importance of news in our daily life. They are like food for our knowledge and help us in being in touch with all the current knowledge.
Sources of News: There are many sources of news.
I would say anything that tells us about any information or latest activity is a news source. We get news from daily newspapers, from television, radio, the internet, even from other people by talking to each other. When there is an activity in our local area, it is spread through conversations among people and we usually get it before we read it in the newspaper or watch it on the television. This is the flow of information and all these are sources of news. The most common news sources are newspaper, television, radio and the internet. Though newspaper is a very traditional way of getting news, but it is still the same effective and trusted way of broadcasting news. Radio is also a good mean of communication, old, but a really good and fast way. After that comes the television. There are many news channels that keep broadcasting news daily 24 by 7 so there is a strong probability that we will know about something as soon as it happens. Another method for news broadcasting is the internet. Internet is the most advanced way of getting knowledge. The best thing about the internet is that most of the things on the internet are free to access. The internet is a hub of information and that information is regularly updated.
On a television, we can access only some limited channels, but with the internet, we have access to worldwide news sites. Even if you are living in USA and you want to know about latest news in Mayo Ireland, you can visit any Irish news website that covers Mayo and you will get the news. Even if you are not able to find such a website, you can make a search on Google for the term Mayo News and you will get several news sites for that. I think the internet is the most trustworthy and wide source of the news worldwide.
