    Online News Vs. Newspapers

    ‘More and more people are getting their news for free online, while fewer and fewer are paying for a newspaper. This means that the standard of journalism will inevitably suffer.’ To what extent do you agree with this statement?

    I disagree with that statement.  I think that there will always be major news venues.  These entities will have a high standard of journalism.  I could see it possibly improving the standard of journalism because online has potential for a much larger readership.  Online news still make money through advertising and other business models.  I see a lot of online news that still use a subscription model as well.  I am always open to being wrong though.

    online definitely.the thing  with online papers is the convenience of not having to shuffle papers over and over again looking for something to read. Online papers occupy smaller space and you can easily click to go to the pages that you want too read.

    I think not. Online news will have to keep up to the standards, they would have to compete for readers if they want to have any revenue from advertizing. And we know that competition means quality.

    I think it's the newspaper companies that might suffer. Online news is free, newspaper is not. And it's harder to dispose of paper than bytes.
