Regarding to The Guardian in its article “Journalism in the digital age: trends, tools and technologies” it is easier now to read the news than before because now the news are available everywhere not only written in the newspaper, we can find news on social media and the news can pop up on our mobile phones as well.
Nowadays, it is totally different from how journalism worked where only few sources of news were radio and some tv-channels. Unfortunately, not everyone is interested to have purchasing physical newspapers. They prefer instead an easy and flexible way to read the news which it is reading the news by using a free apps or websites on the mobile phone which make it easier.
It used to be incredibly expensive to publish a story and make it available to the audience, but nowadays because of the digital developments it is way easier to the journalist to publish the stories without any costs.
