  • Hi,
    News is the source of communication for knowing everything around us, be it a war happening in a neighbouring town or in your own country. The news would be the first to send the word out there, which could save lives. News helps businesses reach new heights; it helps people know pending problems and how to tackle them. It keeps us assured of what has happened. Honestly, I believe a world without news would have been a world where no one knew his/her whereabouts

  • You're right that news plays a vital (necessary or important; essential) role in keeping people informed about what is happening in the world around them. It helps people stay up-to-date on current events, politics, economics, social issues, and other important topics that affect their daily lives.

    I also agree with you that the good effects of news are numerous (great in number; many). It can help people make informed decisions about their lives, stay connected to their communities, and learn about different cultures and perspectives. News can also inspire people to take action on important issues, such as volunteering, donating to charities, or advocating for social justice.

    However, news can also have negative effects. It can create fear, anxiety, and stress among people, especially when it focuses on negative events like crime, disaster, or war. News can also be biased or sensationalized ([especially of a newspaper] presents information about [something] in a way that provokes public interest and excitement, at the expense of accuracy), leading to misinformation and misunderstandings about certain topics. This is like gossip, except it involves entire countries and can cause (especially, although it can cause other things) racial stereotyping all over the world.

    However, news is primarily good, and there are ways people can avoid hearing false information. They should seek out reliable and diverse sources of news, fact-check information before sharing it, and take breaks from news consumption when it becomes overwhelming or stressful.
