    In order to be well-informed, a person must get information from many different news resources. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

    I strongly agree with the idea, that getting information from many different news resources is a premise to be well informed. My reasons are as follows.

    To begin with, every news resource has only one stand. One newspaper has typically one single view regards on a specific matter. For example, an article either in favor or disapproves of a political event. And their reasoning will be around that single belief, so will their supporting materials and validations. However, the readers should not agree on the first idea they lay eyes on. Instead, they should read the claims from different perspectives to have a well-rounded view.

    Secondly, the news isn’t always accurate. In terms of economic events like stock exchange, the numbers are fast-changing yet should be as precise as possible. In such scenarios, getting information from all valid news platforms is crucial for anyone to make a clear judgment.

    Thirdly, the news is formed in an environment. Media from different countries, different cultures may have major distinguishments in their beliefs and political stands. In terms of that, reading vastly is very helpful in forming the right idea.  To make an example, in the recent outburst of the Wu Han virus, the Chinese news facilities failed to reveal the severity in time. However, papers from Britain cast doubts on the infection numbers from a very early stage. If Chinese people had read the news from Britain, if discussions are brought up earlier, people might have better guards on the virus as well as better chances of fighting them.

    In all, getting information from many resources is significant. A person must lay eyes on various news facilities so to have a correct sense of an event. In order to be well-informed, to have a well-rounded view of things, we should read vastly.

    Revision:

    With the recent boom of social media, there are more news resources today than we ever have. Some suggest that getting information from many news resources is a premise to be well informed. In my opinion, this idea should be strongly supported.

    To begin with, we should read different perspectives before reaching a conclusion. Nowadays, one news resource has typically a single view of an event. Besides, it’s reasoning will be around that single belief, including supporting materials and validations. For example, an article either in favor or disapproves of a newly passed bill and it will illustrate how the opinion out-weighs it’s opposite. Thus, the readers should not agree on the first idea they lay eyes on, but to read broadly.

    Additionally, news may be delayed. In terms of economic events like stock exchange, the trend is fast-changing. Yet, news facilities can not report every change in time. If people want to acquire precise statistics, they need to investigate different numbers and draw comparisons. Thus, getting information from all valid news platforms is crucial to stay up-to-date.

    Lastly, the news is formed in an environment. Media from different countries, different cultures may have major distinguishments in their beliefs and political stands. For example,  in the recent outburst of the Wu Han virus, the Chinese news facilities failed to reveal the severity in time, due to various reasons. However, papers from Britain cast doubts on the infection numbers very early. If Chinese people had read the news from Britain and started discussions, people might have better guards on the virus.

    In summary, getting information from various resources is significant. In order to have a well-rounded view of things, we should read vastly and broadly.

In this case, some people believe that getting information from many news resources is a premise to be well informed. From my perspective, the idea should be strongly supported. The reasons are as follows.

     

    To begin with, we should read different perspectives before concluding. One news resource has typically a single view. For example, an article either in favor or disapproves of a newly passed bill.  Besides, one’s reasoning will be around his argument, including the supporting materials and validations. It is one-sided as well. Thus, readers should not agree on the first idea they lay eyes on. It is paramount to read contradict ideas and leverage the strength of proofs. Although we do not have first-hand access to the scene, we should preserve our judgments.

     

    Additionally, the news may delay. In terms of economic events like stock exchange, trends are fast-changing. Yet, news facilities can not report every change in time. To acquire precise statistics, people need to read different numbers and draw comparisons. Thus, getting information from all valid news platforms is crucial to stay up-to-date.

For example,  in the recent outburst of the Wu Han virus, the Chinese news facilities failed to reveal the severity in time. In the meantime, papers from Britain cast doubts on the infection numbers before any alert. If Chinese people had read the news and started discussions, people might have better guards on the virus. The situation may be less severe.

     

    In summary, getting information from various resources is significant. To have a well-rounded view of things, we should read vastly and broadly.

    To begin with, we should listen to different voices before making conclusions. One news resource has typically a single view. For example, an article either supports or disagrees with a bill. Besides, the reasonings around an argument are one-sided. Thus, people should not readily believe in the first idea they see, but read diverse views.

    Additionally, the news may delay. In the fast-changing fields, new things come up at the boundaries of our knowledge. Yet news agencies sometimes failed to report tiny changes. Like in the stock market, every tip could mean something. To acquire precise statistics, people need to read different numbers and draw comparisons. Thus, getting information from all valid news platforms remains crucial.

    Lastly, news reports exit in an environment. Media from different countries and cultures have distinguishments in beliefs and political stands. They reveal different sides of a story. For example, in the recent outburst of the Wu Han coronavirus, the Chinese news agencies failed to reveal the severity in time. In the meantime, papers from Britain cast doubts on the infection numbers at the early stages. If Chinese people had read the news and started discussing, they could have raised awareness about the situation.
