(许波: Xu Bo, Class Four, enrolled in 2008)
We have to admit, Internet, Blog, which result in information conveyance having many revolutionary changes and having an enormous impact on traditional newspapers and magazines. Most people always surf the Internet to scan the current affairs, how many of them on earth were firstly reported by the Internet, they often depend on working together with the other media share sources. Although we have gained much information from the Internet, we still continuously buy magazines and newspapers from the bookstores. As for me, in the aspects of reading habits, I will not give up the media of newspapers and magazines. When have a comparison among newspapers、magazines and TV, Internet,you will find reading newspapers and magazines is easy for our eyes and they are more authoritative than the other media. Thus, newspapers and magazines will not disappear. Then, maybe, you will wonder why the hi-tech media did n’t eventually replace the simple newspapers and magazines.
Firstly, other media have less authoritative than newspapers and magazines. We shouldn’t leave out the mistakes of letter、punctuation and semanteme. The content which TV reported also has authority, but the picture message flashed away quickly, when you want to have a verification to the report , you have no choice but to count on newspapers and magazines, because they were born in the publishing company, w is responsible for the newspapers and magazines, which has one institution, one teamwork, they combined with newspapers and magazines. We couldn’t belittle the function and influence of newspapers and magazines, which are the main source of news material. Although the percentage of the source information of Internet is more than newspapers and magazines’, the authoritative remarks of them, the normal and painstakingly analysis to the topic of the “ person is on the street”are sinking deep into the hearts of them. They are precise and real, also which are full of loopholes,
which cause the public being doubtful of the reliability of Internet news.
Secondly, the newspapers and magazines could take as restoring materials, the most striking example is New Y ork Times is called:“File recording newspaper”. Th ey have the value of collecting, I have ever seen a piece of news, which said every member of family has the newspaper published on their birthday. Thus they know the events happened on that day. As we all know, newspapers and magazines are made of pa per, they hasn’t light, you can read them depend on the light source, which is good for our eyes. But reading Internet and other media which are new technology is harmful for your eyes and health. No matter in the future or recent times, we could predict that the number of choosing to read newspapers and magazines is no less than choosing others’. As for the most readers’ reading habits, they are inclined to choose newspapers and magazines. I have seen a memoir that asked you which way to read is your favorite. In the end, the result is the number of choosing newspapers and magazines is more than others’.
Thirdly, newspapers and magazines are fit for reporting events deeply and quickly. When Sichuan earthquake happened, the journalists have a quick report to it , newspapers and magazines also offer relevant news background information to us ,so we can know more details about this event. Meanwhile, newspapers and magazines have a special attention to “freezing point” and vulnerable group. The most important point is you can know more about the life situation about social vulnerable group by the description of newspapers and magazines. Generally speaking, newspapers and magazines covered politics, economy, cultural and other contents, which are comprehensive. But Internet choose variety of aspects to report, so the public didn’t grasp the main point from it. The key to the development of newspapers and magazines is they own its character, authority and reliability, quality.
In my opinion, newspapers and magazines need improving in the aspects of quality, content and reliability so that we could read some more professional newspapers and magazines. With time passed by, everything wouldn’t keep its fresh appearance to meet us. Thus, it’s important to improve and make them perfectly. In a word, magazines and newspapers will not disappear in a short time, because its
authority and reliability position are irreplaceable.
Newspapers and magazines should keep pace with the times, the newspapers offices have their contents introduced to the Internet recently, which makes use of the advantages of Internet to make up for the shortages in some aspects. That is the transformation in a superficial level, because in this way , people will think it is a simple method to make newspapers and magazines close to the Internet in style.The better point is how to transformation and improve their advantages meanwhile they could maintain and expand their advantages. Maybe, in the future, we could imagine newspapers and magazines are not printed by Press, even not posted by posters, but conveyed by optical fiber communication or wireless network directly. Y ou could receive news or information through some equipments, the news will be showed on a special piece of “paper” which is the same si ze with newspaper which have you read them freely, upon finishing reading, you also may restore and scan them expediently.
To conclude, magazines and newspapers are the basic source of other media, which have a lot of unique characters that other media have not. It is universally acknowledged that newspapers and magazines are the main source of information and reports. They play an indispensable role during our journey. Imagine they disappeared and in the case of no power in your phone, what do you want to do with your long and boring time. Y ou will not find a significant point that we did not hope newspapers and magazines disappear until we meet with this situation. It is obvious that the fact told us and turn out newspapers and magazines will not disappear.
