I noticed that pretty much everything so far has been just me moaning and complaining about the various news outlets out today so decided to change directions a little bit and talk about at least one thing that is a positive with certain forms of media and for people to get their news.
One thing I will say is primarily a positive impact is how easily and quickly people of this generation have access to pretty much any news story that is out at the moment.
Anyone reading this that does not have one of these? I would say a good 9 out of 10 people own a smart phone and probably spend more time than they should on it. I’m not sure how many people out there actually use their smart phones for getting news stories, but for those who want to like me it is amazing. Whenever I hear of a story or see something that’s interesting all I have to do is pull out my phone and do a quick google search and BAM; there’s my news.
Back in the day I can’t even imagine what it was like without smart phones or the internet. People had to wait to either get their news papers or just happen to be by a radio to have any idea of what’s going on. I think I would have liked to live in more simpler times like this. Not as many distractions from what’s going on in the media today
