Electronic media refers to the various electronic modes of mass communication such as televisions, radios, internet, social-media, etc.
In the present day, many of India’s newspapers are online as well as being disseminated in printed formats. Both local and national newspapers have an online presence in this country. Online newspapers are available in numerous languages, from Hindi to Urdu to English.
Electronic media comes with several merits. Firstly, it enables people from all over the country to access the news – if you live in the south of India but want to keep track of the regional news in the north of the country where your family is living, for instance, online news sites are invaluable. These sites also tend to be free to use.
However, there are some demerits to electronic media. For example, in the online world there is more pressure to rush news stories out quickly and this can mean that they are less accurate or well written.
