More people get their news from online articles than from newspapers. Until 2010, it was the other way around. Online information is quickly and easily accessible. Most Americans have laptop computers, tablets, smart phones or other portable electronic devices. Getting their news electronically is convenient, and saves a lot of paper.
Online articles can get information out much faster than paper ones. Breaking news can be posted in a matter of minutes. It takes much longer for a story to go to press, and for newspapers to be printed and distributed. Online articles can also be edited and updated instantly, another advantage over printed.
Blogger news is, basically, made up of electronic news columns. The word blog is a shortened form of weblog. A blog is sort of a personal online diary. Blogging is writing your opinion about subjects that interest you or about current events. That sounds a lot like what newspaper columnists do, because it is very similar. Any subject that can be written about in a newspaper column could also be included as blog info.
Books, magazines, and newspapers are all available online. Online information can be posted instantly, so that news can be delivered in minutes. For the most part, this is a good thing. However, there have been a few incidents of news stories being posted online before being verified as fact, and that later turned out to be false.
