In the past only the journalists were writing the things that happened and the citizens were reading it. But after the technology took over the media, everyone had a chance to be a journalist. People are using the social media to make everyone learn what is happenning in the world.
Take the example of propaganda in Africa; people twitter and all of a sudden the entire world knows about it. So technology has made the world a better place to learn about what’s going on. In the past, people were treated badly and they had no way to ask for help. Only journalists were writing about these things that happened, but only if they were there, or the people managed to escape from the torture. So in the past, it was not easy to write and make the world know about the news. In this time Now, with citizens actively ‘’making’’ the news, one can tell a story to all the world in one second.
However, many journalists don’t have the right to talk against governments. They put journalists to jail if they talk about the bad things a government has made and this makes the news stagnant. As a result, and not surprisingly, the web media is getting all of the real news and has become the source where people are learning the things. Some of the news are taken from the government files and make the news to the top revealing secrets.
When we compare the past and the present, the new system of journalism is better, because the new type of the journalism makes the world know everything in seconds and in one second you can learn a lot of things about the world. When you open up the internet you get a lot of news that have arrived at that time and when you open after one hour you get a lot of new news.
In the past news were standing a foot behind of what has happened, now news are running along side it.
