Hi everyone, I'm interested in how you all get the News. Now a days we have the choice of TV, newspapers, radio and internet. But which do you rely on and which do you consider covers World and local news adequately? Personnally, I think newspapers today have far too much hollywood gossip and tittle tattle than informative news. Their sport pages seem to be expanding and for the cost they just are not value for money. The radio, never has enough time to give indepth news items but just covers headlines and a couple of sentences. TV, does give more indepth news items but tends to be more nationilised rather than World and repeats the same footage in every bulletin. However, if you have satelite TV, you do have more access to a wider range of news stations from around the World...BBC World, CNN, Aljazeera, etc. For me, I nfind the net the best place for news information, not only can you read items from all over the World but often there are video links as well and one has access to the newspapers and TV reports. So, how do you get your news and which do you think gives the best coverage?

I am subscribing to the daily newspaper here of the city I am living at, to keep informed and updated on the developments in the city and the region. I also do watch the news channels on the TV, BBC and CNN too. The news coverages on those channels are marvellous, reporters going right up to the frontlines.

You certainly have to hand it to the foreign news reporters how they put their lives on the line to bring us the latest in World conflicts. I also think that BBC and CNN are 2 of the best if not the best at broadcasting World affairs.

I read two papers a day and watch the new on tv...also if there is something tha piques my interest on the internet I check it out. I prefer newspapers to any other kind of media for the news.

Do you not think newspapers are becoming over priced for the quality of information they give us. So, many of them seem more interested in scandals rather than informative news information.
