Newspapers were once the go-to place for news. It was an all-in-one place you could learn things from global events to local yard sales. Today, newspapers still serve the same function, but with advanced technologies, more and more people get their news from other places.
Television and radio still provide news to many people daily, and this is one source that can usually be trusted for accuracy. The drawback to these, however, is that they typically only run for a small allotted time and may not cover all the stories you may be interested in. The news that is provided by television and radio is clear and easy to understand, so most people will make a point to be in front of their television every day at six, but it is still limited to which topics the news group decides to run.
For more coverage on any particular story, most people turn to the internet. Here, there is more complete coverage on a wider variety of topics, every niche of news that can be imagined. The downside to obtaining news from the internet is that the accuracy is not as easily regulated than that of television or radio. It is far too common to find inaccuracies strewn throughout some news stories, omissions to support an agenda or bias, or altogether fabricated.
Newspapers still hold the highest standard for unbiased, accurate, and complete news stories, but people often do not want to or have time to sift through pages and pages of stories. On top of that, most newspapers still cost money, so they must be purchased first. With technology, newspapers can now put many of their stories, if not all of them, online for convenience, but it still requires readers to search through articles and ads to find the stories they are interested in.
So, where could someone get news that is reliable, on topics they care about, and easy to use? An e-Newsletter may be just what is needed. E-Newsletters are fairly small documents, so there is not much sifting through multitudes of stories or ads. They typically cover specific industries, so the articles are most relevant to what someone is looking for, and, most importantly, they are generally held to a high standard of accuracy, like newspapers, television, and radio.
There are a multitude of e-newsletters available today, many that cost nothing. SafeSourcing’s e-Newsletter is one of those. It is provided free of charge every month and can be accessed online even without a subscription. It provides industry-related stories from reliable sources, so readers can be sure what they are reading is true, complete, and accurate.
