Has the explosion of available information made media coverage better or worse? Explain your answer.
Weegy: The explosion of available information has made the coverage better and worse. The good thing about the explosion of the media is you can know what is going on whenever and wherever. [ There was a time when you had to wait until the six o clock news to find out what was happening. There were occasions when you would get a preempted news flash come across the television. Now media coverage is on twenty four hours a day seven days a week. The thing I think has made it worse is how the coverage media airs the news. The content the media thinks is important is usually gossip. I think if I hear of another celebrity being hauled of to rehab I am going to scream. It would be nice once in a while to know how our troops are doing and the good they are doing. Instead they put all negativity in the news. It would be nice if one media source just gave news about the everyday average American Citizen doing something good. All you ever hear is bad things and all the negative political bashing. The media are always competing against each other to see who gets the news the first, and the one that does get it first starts the ball rolling with other media. Everything is usually the same thing said only in different versions of how each media interrupts the news. ] (More)

Paraphrasing is re-writing another writer’s words or ideas in your own words without altering the meaning. The paraphrase is about the same length as the original since the purpose is to rephrase without leaving out anything, and not to shorten. Summarizing, on the other hand, is putting down the main ideas of someone else’s work in your own words. A summary is always shorter than the original since the idea is to include only the main points of the original work and to leave out the irrelevant. A summary is usually about one-third the size of the original. Now when should you paraphrase and when should you summarize? Paraphrase when: • You want to use another writer’s words without plagiarizing • You want to use another writer’s words without the use of quotes • The ideas of the other writer are more important than his/her style • You think that the words of the other writer are too difficult for your readers Summarize when: • You want to identify only the main ideas of the writer • You want to give an overview of the topic (from several sources) • You want to simplify a complex argument • You want to condense the matter to suit your requirement
