Why the world needs newspapers – Athens Messenger (registration)
In todayâs world, itâs more important than ever that people can trust newspapers. There are of course tabloid publications that openly twist and sensationalize. They are simply filling a niche market. Social media, however, is blurring the lines between tabloid, opinion and newspaper-level reporting. While social media has positive aspects in how it allows anyone to weigh in on any matter at any time, that same positive can also serve as a negative as too many people take what is written on social media on the same credibility of newspaper journalist.
