There are a number of elements that have a sharp influence on the content news editors choose to broadcast on television and print on newspapers. As far as I am concerned, those factors may be the imprtance and urgency of the certain issue and the field in belongs to.
Apparently, a vast majority of people follow broadcast and read newspapers on a daily basis with a view to acknowledging what the most outstanding events going on in their world are. News editors are definitely aware of this and consequently pick up the lastest and weightiest news. However, the kinds topics matter a lot as well. The first priorities are often politics, socio-economy and serious cultural issues rather than relaxation, entertainment or gossips.
Nowadays, all broadcast and papers seem to be embraced with bad news and we are somehow familiar with it. Although that sounds negative, it would make no differences if more good news was reported, in my point of view. The jobs of news editors require them to be objective rather than self-opinioned so that the information approaching watchers and readers covers the most practical, urgent and important issues. Only when they, watchers and readers, are fully aware of what is actually going on can they adjust their behaviors satisfactorily to the world. Only then will a world be a better place.
Prviding good but impractical and trivial news would only make people turn their faith in a make-believe world. Watchers and readers of broadcast and newpapers should be brave to come to terms with what problems ae going on in their world since only when we look on them as real problems are we ready to fix them.
