News Food: A Boon For the Health Conscious
If you have ever gone to a newsstand and tried to select a newspaper from the rack, you might have noticed a large variety of news food in the paper. In many cases, the news is color coded to help you identify the section of the day that has headlines about that topic. For example, if there are three sections for news that discussing energy issues, health, and economy, you would see a yellow banner with one of those topics listed above the fold.
The other advantage of newsprint over the internet or television news is the timeliness. With newscasts on local stations throughout your country or even the world, there is very little time allowed for breaking news stories. With a news story appearing on a network or national newscast in the morning, it usually only has thirty to sixty seconds before it is relayed across the country. If you are looking up the latest local weather information, you are likely to have to wait until the end of the day before your local newscast airs new information.
This time constraint makes news food more attractive to consumers. With a newsstand, there is never any question about when the latest news will be available. Unlike with breaking news that appears on your television screen, you can sit down at your desk or in bed and read your favorite newsbook all morning without having to worry about the weather. If you want to know the latest local weather, you can simply take a rain gauge outside and set it to monitor the precipitation levels as they fall. By the time your food news finishes spinning, you’ll know the local forecast.
