News stories of TV and in newspapers are very often accompanied by pictures. Some people say that these pictures are more effective than words. What is your opinion about this? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

News stories either on
TV
or Newspapers covered with pictures will help readers or viewers understand the news and helps in updating of any ongoing situations across the globe. News with pictures will highlight the scenario on any particular situation, so that while watching can easily figure out the news content on
TV
and
likewise
read the news with picture in the newspaper.
For instance
the recent news on outbreaks of Corona virus which just reading or watching the news will not help us, but simultaneously seeing more pictures either on
TV
or newspaper makes us understand and overview the catastrophic effect of Corona virus.
Also it

Also, it
leads us to take preventive measures to stay safe from the
infection
and
also
from spreading it.
Further
people will come to know the current position of the
infection
and what will happen to an infected person, what sort of medicine he or she is administered.
Moreover if
Accept comma addition
Moreover, if
any person unaware of the news and has not seen any images or pictures and doesn't know about "Quarentine" will be very difficult as any suspect of
infection
will be taken to isolation room and will be monitored day & night to check the
infection
and treatment will be started based on the report So in my opinion, I would say that pictures are more effective in understanding the news stories either it could be on
TV
or Newspaper. Through
this
picture only any person can be able to acquire information on politics, sports, science, global etc. As to be precise, on the sports news when Indian team won the world cup 2020 the picture of Indian cricket team holding cup provided the information without reading or listening to the news.
Hence I
Accept comma addition
Hence, I
do agree that pictures are effective in news stories.
