New Technology and the Media

Technology was a major benefactor in human history. The media often collided with technology and kept them at bay even though it would play a key role in improving the overall effectiveness of the media. Old traditional practices became the path for new ideas and inventions such as the electromagnetic telegraph and daguerreotype images. The media’s new technological breakthrough also increase the rate of literature all over the east coast of the U.S. Newspapers later began to embrace the telegraph as well as keep news reporters on the job for longer periods of time. Another invention, the inverted pyramid, allowed reporters to put the most important and relevant facts first in case the telegraph fails during the broadcast.

In addition, radio and television became the new sources for news and information. In time, the revenue gained by the new technology exceeded those that uses print. The digital age became golden when the internet enters the human world. Along with high-speed networks, the media can instantly deliver breaking news in the blink of an eye. However, the information must be creditable or it will be of little or no value. As we advance in our lives, we can sit back, relax, and enjoy the digital age as we see it today.
