WOW | What You Think

Do you read the news? How relevant is the news today? Do you believe what you read?

Yes, I do read newspapers and magazines in my break and lunch hour. I usually read one or two papers on Friday to see what’s new in the entertainment section and some articles which are relevant to my area of work or interest.

We are using more types of media now than in the past. Satisfying the audience is about making sure that the content is relevant and engaging to readers. The standard of today’s journalism is good because it raises issues of the voiceless. It plays an important role in bringing change and prosperity to human life through information, entertainment, education, health awareness and also strengthens democracy.

I don’t believe everything I read, whether it is print or online media. I only believe half of what I see or read and trust only few sources.
