In many countries, very few young people read newspapers or follow the news on TV. What do you think are the causes of this? What solutions can you suggest?

A number of youngsters all over the

have

in
newspapers and
TV
. The main roots of
this
issue
lies

in the rise of the Internet, which will be discussed in more details below with suggested solutions. It can’t be denied that Internet
has impressively transformed

the way we receive information. Have never before keeping up to date with the

we can get any news from anywhere all over the
world
with almost no cost incurred. It is obviously much more convenient and efficient to get info from Internet than traditional media
such
as printed newspapers,
TV
.
Hence
, youngsters who are digital natives find it more appealing to follow news on the Internet.
On the other hand
, it could be a double-edged sword. From the positive view, youngsters who don’t
get news updated

get updated news
via traditional method would choose online method, by which is still beneficial and informative.
However
, many others get carried away with what we call “trash or fast-food info”. These may include gossips from social media, online tabloids, etc.
Such
information can be very
entertaining but

not educational nor informative in the long run. Henceforth,
this
is truly a worrying problem that we must deal with. Another reason for the lack of updating news via
TV
/ newspapers is by personal preference of
youngsters
Suggestion
the youngsters
themselves. Today we are bombarded with a lot of negative news all over the
world
since chaos
are

is
everywhere. Some young people choose not to be up-to-date because simply they do not want to be affected by bad news. They feel that modern life has been stressful enough so

to

mental health. So how do we deal with

issue?
First
and foremost, there should be a control over
flow

the flow
of information. For any piece of news be

, there must exist validation process to back up its trustworthiness and rightness.
Secondly
, there should
also
be incentives to encourage youngsters to read news from orthodox sources whether it is traditional or digital.
This
can be done by guiding people from early ages to form a habit of reading news from reputable media brands
such
as CNN, BBC.
Last
but not least, media companies
also
need to invent different methods to capture youngsters’ attention without making exaggerated or even fake statements. All in all, the fact that youngsters no longer follow news from
TV
and newspapers is not an issue if they use a much more efficient tool like
Internet
Suggestion
the Internet
.
However
, if they let themselves be lured away by other non-educational data on the Internet
then
that is
worrying. Only a
co-operative
involving the joint activity of two or more
cooperative
effort of Governments, media bodies, schools, families and the young people themselves can address
this
problem.
