The other day, someone at the Online Think Tank had asked me how come I am up on all the newest news – he asked; “where do you receive your news anyway?” What he really was asking is if I got most of my news online, from the newspaper, radio or TV? Interestingly enough, I get my news from those sources. Online, I take several RSS feeds, ezines and surf the internet news. You see, as an enormous “news intake junky” myself, I can say that both online and offline news are important.
Where do you receive your news? Where do we tend to get most of our news? Yes, that is a good question, and some say news is much like politics and all news is local stiri transilvania 24, meaning that you need to read the area newspaper, watch the area TV, tune in to the area radio and head to localized online portal venues. Great news for local media at a time when much of the advertising dollar is moving towards online venues.
But how people manage to get thier news is actually hard to say. For all like me it’s a combination of sources. Maybe, but without proper research, it is simply all talk. Actually, I read an appealing blog last week that addressed this issue and cited a couple of surveys that contradicted one another, done of course by the media of each different venue, convenient indeed. This indicates in my experience this gentleman’s blog makes a great point in that he shows these “news polls” for what they are. What is that famous saying; liars figure and figures lie, often enough is the real truth.
In B2B Magazine which is really a print magazine touting the greatness of Online Marketing, that will be funny in itself, it showed a study that radio, TV and newspapers were building a slight come back advertising, of course that is only because those media outlets work best for elections and you will find big bucks being spent. Thus, they have to continue the image that individuals are viewing, thus more studies, “done by them” to advertise themselves. Still, I came across it ironic that B2B Magazine agreed with the stats.
Obviously, in regards down to it, most politicians are getting a larger percentage of these contributions online so there is a lot of push for valuable content, locally, regionally and even nationally and global. I came across your comments spot on, and this is a deep question, that I too want answered with empirical data, real research, unbiased. Indeed, I enjoyed this gentleman’s blog about the media and how people manage to get thier news, it certainly got me thinking, and I really hope I passed this onto you.
