We all know that news travels fast, especially bad news, although The Sun probably isn't the worst paper when it comes to bad news, there would have to go it's Sunday companion in the News of the World that does everything in its power to ruin the lives of the celebrities that is writes about. In a world of people wanting the latest news first though, it means that once a paper is published it is more than likely going to be out, and that is why it is no surprise to see national newspapers such as The Sun turning to giving online deliveries of the daily news.
It would be wrong to say that it is just The Sun that has online news, because pretty much every paper going does at the moment, even my local paper. This online delivery of the news can be quite helpful when there is maybe something I would want to know about, and no one in my family has managed to pick up a paper from a newstand, but it does make me wonder why The Sun feels the need to publish their news online, even if it is in cut down versions they are still giving away a lot of their surely priceless content.
For example, I can log on to the website and pretty much view the story behind any of its main headlines, and I can do it without having to raff around with big newspaper pages and have stories that I can just scroll through instead free of charge. Good quality pictures are also included in the stories, so unless you like to cut them out and keep them, there's not really any need to pick up a paper for the headlines. You may also find just lately that The Sun will mention about logging on to it's website to view exclusive content, such as videos relating to stories, so if you get more benefits from using the website why would anyone want to buy the paper?
Well not everyone is going to catch on to this interactive news service, and to be honest most of my news reading comes when I am in a bored state or I don't want to be on a computer. With so much to do on the internet already, such as writing reviews, why would I want to check out news as well when most of the time I could just sit on my couch and read the paper - and on days when I don't get to read a newspaper I'm not all that bothered anyway because that's why we have so many news services on the television nowdays.
Benefits of having this online website is that they can publish the latest news that they haven't managed to get in their paper before the deadline, such as if something major happens changes are they will update their front page with the news. This news service really doesn't rival that of BBC's though, and if there was some breaking news I wouldn't go to The Sun.co.uk for it. Everyone does have an opinion on everything though, and The Sun allows you to voice this in one of the millions of open forums on the intenret. At the end of each story you will usually have the option to add your own comment to it, and read what other people are saying so far. Sometimes if you don't agree with something someone has written about a story it can be hard to keep your mouth shut!
The site does work well, and there is also a lot of random stuff for you to explore on the website, and some of this extra stuff is mainly there for money making purposes. I can't really argue with the layout of the website either, but there is somthing about it all which makes you think that the website probably gets used more for the latest on Big Brother rather than the traditional news stories.
