Mass Media
The mass media play an important part in our lives. Newspapers, radio and
especially TV inform us of what is going on in this world and give us wonderful
possibilities for education and entertainment. They also influence the way we see
the world and shape our views.

with extra detail, comment and background information.
The Internet has recently become another important source of information. Its
main advantage is that news appears on the screen as soon as things happen in
real life and you don’t have to wait for news time on TV.
