With rise in technology and easy accessibility to Internet, the traditional newspaper has lost its importance. I Strongly agree with this statement as nowadays everyone wants to save their time and hence prefer online press, as it is more convenient and provides immediate latest news to the reader.
Firstly, the online news are more easily accessible and convenient than the traditional printed news. News readers can easily access the latest news on their smartphones at their own time while multitasking for example, while travelling or cooking. Readers can also share the relevant news with their family or friends on social media. The online news industry, provides more short and relevant news to the consumer based on their interest and their recommendation, using various new technologies like AI and Machine learning algorithms.
Secondly, in the conventional printed news there are a lot of efforts required to make the news available for the news readers, like tedious process of editing, printing and distributing the newspapers every morning in time. Moreover, it also involves a lot of paper consumption which is not ecologically friendly. The local printed newspapers limits the news up to their states or country , but the digital online press offers the wide variety of news from all around the world.
To summarize, people prefer consuming online news as it is easiest and doesn’t require additional cost. I believe gradually printed newspaper will be replaced by the online press as it offers a lot of advantages over the conventional newspaper and are also environment friendly.
