Modern technology made reaching of news affordable, easy and fast. People can access this from wherever they want. Due to this, there is a steady growth in independent publishers and media houses and cost of publishing has drastically come down when compared to paper publishing. Many new authors and citizen journalists are welcomed and encouraged to prove their worth in the filed of journalism and book writing from zero to low cost. This technology is echo friendly as use of paper is kept minimal. This technology is helping news to go censor free. For example, publishing an E-book with print on demand option is very feasible to those who cannot get the big publishing house to publish their book as the cost is zero. Independent media houses are using modern technology like social media and penetration of the internet to grow there reach e.g., newsclick.in
