This essay Information Media has a total of 726 words and 4 pages.
It all started with the newspaper. Every morning the paperboy or girl tossed the daily news on their usual paper route while the neighborhood patiently waited to see what was happening in the world around them. Now the news can be received right after it happens via television, internet, or the closest smartphone. Information media has evolved right along with technology and can now be accessed quickly and easily. Although the news can now be easily accessed and has evolved with the technology today, there are still flaws and room to grow.
Information media has social responsibility because it provides news to everyone in the world. The importance of the accuracy of the news that is delivered to the public is serious. There is plenty of fake news that floats around on the internet that some people actually believe. There is a news station that makes fun of real news but actually is more entertaining and makes the news easier to watch. “We recently launched in 2007 Onion News Network. And it’s doing extremely well. It’s reached audiences that the newspaper and the online newspaper has never been able to reach through this whole viral thing” (Randazzo). There are certain news outlets that the public turns to such as; CNN, Fox news, NBC news, and ABC news. Reporting false news or partial news will ruin a news outlet’s credibility. Reporting news that happens around the world that is not necessarily easy to obtain is information media’s responsibility. By reporting the news, the public is informed of the things going on around. Therefore the news has taken on the responsibility of doing its public duty and reporting news that benefits everyone.
People depend on the news for everything including what is going on with the government and the country. The only role the information and news media should play when it comes to politics is reporting information on what is going on. It does help that the media outlets sometimes show coverage of debates between political parties so that the public has an easier way to get information on the political parties they are choosing and maybe see what the other party has to offer. Information media should stay a neutral party when reporting information on politics. That way the public can decide for themselves.
Information media is a lot easier to access on the go since technology has evolved. People can now view any story that was covered by a news outlet on their mobile devices anywhere they go. Because the news is more accessible, newspapers like The New York Times, can post online or on their mobile apps as soon as they receive the story. The newspaper companies used to have to wait until the story was finished then printed just to break the story to the public. “For years, we’ve operated under the assumption that we just have to know what’s going on by midnight when the press roles. And we have all day to work on that story. So we work and work and work on it. At midnight, you hit the button” (Little). With the new technology, there is no more waiting and people can see what the news stations have reported on their mobile devices. People watch the news a lot more when it is more accessible and easier to access the exact story they want to know about instead of waiting. This makes news easier for a new generation. A younger crowd is now more involved with what is going on in their community.
With the new day and age, electronic media has become a part of everyday life. It has made accessing news coverage easier and is a way to get stories out to the public extremely easy. “Newspapers may not eventually survive in the form they’re in” (Campbell). Technology is slowly diminishing the newspaper and now the newspaper companies can still report news with a new found twist and the news stations can keep the public informed quickly, but just like anything that has to do with technology, the news is not perfect and the people that report it are not either.

Objectification and Humanization Objectification and Humanization People in almost every developed country and culture on earth have attained unprecedented levels of personal freedom and equality to their fellow human beings.
