Internet is slowly becoming more and more popular as a source of news. Television, however is loosing it’s influence. Internet probably soon will become main news source among every group of people, but is internet really better news source or people are using internet just because it is easier and more available than in romania? (imprumut rapid)

There are different options. Those who think internet is better news source base their decision mostly on variety of news available. On the internet many different news websites are available. That means audience can choose what news they want to read and also they have a chance to compare many journalist opinions. In television, however, there is only few news channel available, so audience must trust them without any comparison or a plurality of views.

Also as a huge benefit is mentioned the ability to choose specific topics. In television there is specific topics covered in each broadcast and audience must watch the whole broadcast, even if they are interested only in one specific topic. On the internet you can read or watch only articles that are binding to you. It is possible to get comprehensive information on every topic, but you are not forced to read it all.

Internet is also estimated as more reliable news source, because most of the news websites are independent and run by journalists or professionals in field of media or public relationships. Television, however is ran by corporate media. Their main aim is to gain profit, so they are feeding the news that are convenient to them.

And the last thing that proves internet is superior is the ability to provide the latest news. It task only few seconds to make an article on the internet, so you can know everything that is happening just few seconds later. In television, however, you will be able to get the latest news only when the broadcast starts. That might be even with many hour delay (even more than with credit doar cu buletinul). So those who are using internet can find out everything first.

By this we might think internet really is superior news source than television, but there are also some disadvantages of internet news. For example, in the internet everyone can make their own website and write news. You cannot truly trust the information, because you cannot be sure who writes it and how he gets the information. If there are no information sources stated, you cannot trust the news. Specialists in the field of media claims that even half of the news provided by internet websites are false. So if audience is not able to tell which news are reliable and which are not, they will get false information and will pass it by.

 

So internet really is superior in many aspects, but audience must be careful. As there is so huge amount of information provided on the internet, they must make sure information really is true. Basically they must make their own research to to find out what is true and what is not. Television however offers only small amount of information every day, but it is brought by reliable sources only which are always stated. Another question is – are television broadcasts corrupted or honest? The best option is still going through different news sources and figure out the truth by yourself.  

There are so many information sources available nowadays that it might be challenging to sort out this whole information provided and figure out what is true and what is not? It is important to know who to trust, so evaluate all the provided information very carefully. That will help you to become more critical thinker and will save you from being misled snabblån.

First you need to understand what kind of content you are perceiving and what is a purpose for that. Are you looking at news article, opinion post, advertisement, comment or something else? Find out who produced this content and what is his purposes of doing that? For example, if it’s news article created by journalists, it should be true, because the job of journalist is to provide true information to the audience. If you are looking at personal post, it is probably true, but saturated with emotions and it is nonobjective. If its advertisement it might not be true, because the aim of commercial is to show something from better side and hide all the disadvantages. In short, knowing what exactly you are perceiving is important in understanding weather it is true.

Next thing you need to look at is the source of information. Anyone can say or write whatever they want and nowadays that can be passed by very easily. If there is no source stated, it is not reliable information. If there is source stated, you must eventuate reliability of this source. Remember that you need to get to the provenance of the information. For example, if there is some news agency stated as source of article, you must figure out who provided the information to the agency. Only then you can be completely sure about the information. And even then you must ask yourself – how do they know that? If there is no answer, you cat trust the information låna pengar utan ränta.

Then you should evaluate evidences. It is similar to source, but a bit different. Just like in case of source, you must understand how can they know its true? Actually it means how close the author of the information is to the event or object he is writing about. For example, if you find an article about medicine and the author is average high school student, probably the information cant be considered as too reliable. How can a simple student know something important about medicine? But if the source is research institute, it probably is true.

And the lat thing is personal intuition. Unfortunately, even with serious research about reliability of the information we can never be completely sure. There can be article with many references on serious researches carried out by bet scientists, but even that can be fabricated. Information can be misrepresent and perceived very convincingly. And also there can be opposite situation – someone without specific knowledge in certain field must somehow know more than others. So sometimes only thing you can relay on is your own intuition.

 

In short, reliable information usually have references on reliable sources such as news agencies, interviews, researches, etc., and it is independent. If there is no the interested parties on the provided information itself, it should be true. Otherwise there is little chance that information is reliable.

Nowadays almost anyone is a part of social social networking. We use all kind of social networks for many reasons. It is not only used for communication anymore, but also as an important information source. Actually social networks has become primary source of information of this decade låne penger. That means people get the information mostly form social networks, but as it is possible to post anything and share it with others, the question arises – is it reliable enough to be used as actual information source sms lån?

Just think of how easy it is to create a post. If someone wants to feed false information to the whole society, all he has to do is create a post that is fascinating and interesting to the audience. Everyone will be able to read it and if the information in the post is set out convincingly, people will share it and these false news can even cause panic or condemnation towards someone. There have even been real cases when panic is caused by false posts. Making false posts is easiest way how to slander someone, so be sure there is plenty of them in social networks.

So does that mean we shouldn't read anything on social media? Not at all. Actually social media is a great help to actual journalists and news networks. It works both ways – journalists can find information on latest events on social media and posts created by journalists can be passed by, using social media. Journalists all over the world are doing that and it is working. They are professionals and they know how to tell if the information is true or not. They also check everything before making a post so information provides by journalists is usually true.

The thing is that people must know how to tell which information is true and which is not. First of all, you must look who has posted it. If it is some unknown website or just some person with no actual proofs of the information written in the post, you shouldn’t trust this information. Even more, you shouldn’t even read it at all, because that is exactly what these false news providers want. However, if the information is shared from reliable news website or there are actual source of information stated, there is no reason why you shouldn’t believe it.

Social media can be used to spread lies, but also it can be used to inform society about important events. Some information is reliable and some is not. The issue is that social networks themselves, don’t sort this information. If you can tell which is true and which is not, than social media even can be the best information source for you, because it is possible to find out all the latest information this way. If you are not able to tell if the information is true or not, it would be better to not use social networks as source of information. That can cause panic and create wrong opinion on important fats.

Independent media has an important role in any democracy. If the media is being controlled by the government, it can’t be called democracy anymore, because then the leaders of the country could have control over citizens minds and actions. The role of media is usually underestimated, but actually media has the biggest role in any political process. Independent media is the only force that can tell the truth and if this force is taken away, politicians can feed anything to the citizens.

For example, if one political force have all the influence over media they are able to show their actions and ideology as the only one that is true, and at the same time they are able to slander opponents. Of course, people would believe that, because the main information source nowadays is media. If each and every media says the same, why would citizens doubt that? The good news is that all the media nowadays in democratic countries will never be controlled by one political force, but does that mean media is completely independent and we can relay on them when it comes to political processes?

It is believed that in demonstrative countries media really is fully independent, so the citizens would have a chance to evaluate all the political processes by themselves, but actually it is quite far from true. It is almost impossible to remove any kind of political influence on media. First of all, there are no regulations toward who can own media nowadays. If you have enough of money, you can buy or create any kind of media. Second of all, also independent media are trying to earn some money, so everyone can make them provide the information that is convenient to them.

As we all know, nowadays citizen’s support get those political forces who can provide the best commercials and information about themselves in media. Electorate mostly base their decisions on what they see on news. If one political force buy on-air time in any news broadcast and talk about how great they are and how awful are the opponents, it is clear that they will get the most votes. So basically now the most powerful poetical forces are those who have money to control the media, not those who can provide better solutions. Electorate doesn’t have a chance to evaluate all the candidates, because media tell them what to think and what to do.

So media have a huge role in political forces. Actually, everything electorate will do is based on what is told in media. The only way how you can make your own decisions without any positive or negative influence is by sorting out independent media and the interdependent or corrupted media. It is not an easy task, because independent media also will have certain attitude and without deeper knowledge in politics it is hard to tell which one is telling the truth and which one is just trying to feed what is convenient to them. Just try to think with your own head and make your own decisions not listen everything whats on news.
