IELTS - News editors decide what to broadcast. Would it be better if more good news was reported?
Media is commercial foundation. So, how much time will be media product viability it has been defined by the market. Editors are interested in media product stay on the market during a long time. For this reason, they provide auditory news, which is common and suitable for all time. It is a reason why we give information about wars, revolutions and other disruptions. In fact, auditory defines what editor shows them. There is one simple principle, if is demand, there is giving, too. It is the one the most major factor what impacts on the editor's decision.
As I mentioned global interesting theme is war. So, we give negative and bad news permanently. We are listening to endless news about East wars, demonstrations in Egypt, Syria. From my point of view, to reach goals and increase circumstance is easily by this way. An editor needs themes which will bring more viewers. Gradually, the media came out of human interest and it had converted as mass production.
If the editors think of, about population and they will report more good news, and also if they would not be oriented to strain the situation artificially, watching or reading newspaper and TV would be more pleasant for us. And also, in my opinion media must be oriented on human development and give them more positive than negative.
