Which kinds of people like reading news and which don’t like it?
I suppose that people who like to stay well-informed enjoy reading the news. Generally speaking, I believe businessmen are regular readers of the news because they need to focus on whether new policies have a good or bad influence on their business. On the flip side, people who have a small attention span or care about less serious things probably don’t like reading the news. You know, those people aren’t that concerned with what’s going on in the world around them. They may care more about their daily life and their own family.
What kind of news do people like?
Well, in general, people like news about celebrities. There are dozens of tabloid magazines that make money off of people wanting to hear all the latest gossip about their favorite stars. Personally, I think it’s really shallow of people to want to know so much about strangers, but I guess it can’t be helped when we live in a society that focuses so much on famous people. Everyone just wants to know the latest goings-on.
Do young people and old people like the same type of news?
I don’t think so. If you ask me, young people like news about celebrities or pop culture. For example, lots of my friends spend hours scrolling through news articles about their favorite stars. But when it comes to old people, I think they probably enjoy news that are focused on politics. For example, my grandpa likes staying up to date with the latest actions of famous politicians. They’re much more serious in that regard.
Besides TV, how do people get news?
Well, when it comes to people my age, I know that getting news from social media websites is actually pretty common. For example, I often check out sites like Sina so I’m in the know with what’s going on. But I know lots of other people get news the old-fashioned way through actual newspapers. Many old people are subscribed to a ton of newspapers that keep them informed. To each their own.
Do you think children should start watching news from a young age?
I don’t really think children should start watching news from a young age. A lot of what you see on the news or read about in the papers is pretty serious. For example, there are lots of stories about violent acts like robberies and murders. I think kids should be allowed to be kids and not have to worry about heavy stuff like that. Maybe they can start paying attention to the news when they’re older.
Do you think we should pay attention to the latest news?
Yeah, I believe it’s important to pay attention to the latest news. After all, a good citizen is an informed citizen. If you watch or read the latest news, you can know more about what’s going on in the world. That’ll give you material for interesting and informative conversations with the people around you. Actually nowadays, people are too focused on themselves. It’s good to branch out and pay attention to stuff like that.
