The creation of cable television 24-hour news networks has changed the entire landscape of current events and politics. With many 24-hour news outlets needing current events content to fill their broadcast day, it is not unusual to see the same world event covered from a variety of angles by a variety of people. When war breaks out today, the media is there to bring us the pictures and images almost as they happen.

To some people it can seem a bit too real, and to others it is an essential way to show the world how events affect real people. The 24-hour news networks also have extremely dynamic websites, and they are all trying to outdo each other when it comes to presenting new facts about a daily event. When you see all of the 24-hour news networks listed in a web directory, you are looking at several different views of the same story.

TV

As much as the television news networks try to maintain their unbiased stance, their websites and daily programming content will usually indicate a leaning towards one political view or another. Politics plays a large role in the formation of news on the 24-hour news channels, and the political pundits and commentators found on the websites and in the regular programming of these stations will quickly indicate where a station's views fall on current event issues.

Television is said to have both its good and bad sides. One disadvantage of having a television and using it daily is that after a while you become addicted to it and the shows it offers. Reality shows, catchy movies or documentaries are a delight, but as long as the spectators know when it is time to lift themselves from the couch and do the house cleaning. On the other hand, television is important in our lives because we need that in order to stay informed and know what`s happening in the world.

Spending too much time in front of the television can also cause obesity when people do nothing but eat and watch TV. This has already become an important issue for the American Government. The first TVs were monochromatic (only black and white colours) and there was usually no sound, so the quality was poor. Nowadays instead, we have large plasmas with such a stunning quality of the image and sound that you think the action is really happening in front of you.

To sum up, television does influence our lives one way or another and it will continue to do so since it is one of the most important methods of mass transmitting the information to the population. Jasminedirectory.com can provide information related to the first TVs, inventors, evolution but also predictions regarding television and how it will affect our lives in the near future.

Politicians will use these implied affiliations by 24-hour news stations to help get their points across to a large television and internet audience. It is interesting to watch the relationship between television news and politics at work on a daily basis.

One of the advantages of television news channels needing content to fill a 24-hour programming day, and the pages of an active website, is that many of the issues that could benefit from mass exposure sometimes get the attention they need to help people in need. A refugee crisis that may not have made the news before the 24-hour stations came along can now get massive coverage and it may help to get aid to the people that are suffering everyday.
