Hello, we are protective_dusk and active_guava, and we are here to discuss the very important question, How does an infodemic change the way people read the news?
So, first of all, what is the news? Well, the news is where people tell other people what is going on around the world. The word news means new story. There are also many ways on how people can access the news. For example, 73% of the people in the world get news from the TV? Other people access it from social media, the radio and even newspapers. Before the pandemic, lots of people watched the news pretty often, and this was probably about 3 times a day. But, because of Covid, we have gone into something called an infodemic as well. This is where there is lots of news on the same story.
Because of the infodemic, the way people view the news has changed. People are getting bored, scared, and overwhelmed with the amount of news there is on Covid. This can be bad as it is effecting people's mental health and wellbeing. Now, because of this infodemic, people are getting, and reading the news a lot less often then they would do. Because of this, news presenters might get less money. That is how an infodemic can change the way people view the news.
