Today news has many effects on people’s everyday lives. Many times, the negative events are the focus of attention, but the news also has many positive events that are given attention. When hurricane Katrina struck, thousands of news stations focused their cameras on the relief efforts and offering ways that even those sitting on their couch could assist America in its time of need. The news has increased awareness of the world around us, turning once self-centered countries into one global world. Distance is no longer a barrier. When a disaster strikes in the most remote part of the world, assistance can begin almost immediately due to news broadcasting. The news also gives individuals a voice to communicate with the general public. News allows ordinary people to talk about their views while reaching millions through the internet, news channels, and newspaper articles.
