A newspaper has a very important place in our lives. If we were to live without newspaper we would be in the dark. We will never know what is happening in our own country and the world. It is a good habit to keep abreast with all that is happening all over the country and in the world. Newspapers are one of the reliable sources of information to us. They report incidents of importance that occur daily in various parts of the country and the world. No doubt there is TV and radio. But their reports are not always authentic.
A newspaper gives us the correct picture of the social, cultural, economic and business scene in the world. If there are no newspapers we would never learn about the various changes that are taking places in various spheres and also who or what causes those changes. Knowledge gives us strength to tackle problems and knowledge and information is best provided by newspapers.
We also get sports news and film reviews from papers. Young boys and girls learn about the various sport events and also film news from the celluloid world. Cartoons and games also keep us entertained and our mornings would be dull if we did not have the newspaperman bringing our favourite newspaper to our doorstep. We get objective analysis and opinion of important men through newspapers. However, sometimes they tend to sensationalize news to gain popularity. That type of journalism is called the yellow Press. One must be beware of such stories and features in the newspaper.
