WRITING TASK 2
You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Present a written argument or case to an educated reader with no specialist knowledge of the following topic:

News editors decide what to broadcast on television and what to print in newspapers. What factors do you think influence these decisions? Do we become used to bad news? Would it be better if more good news was reported?

You should write at least 250 words.
Use your own ideas, knowledge and experience and support your arguments with examples and relevant evidence.


People who work in a broadcasting company search for news all the time. They want to show their news to all people in the world. There are many media for broadcasting news. People have a different way in searching news. Some of them like to listen, so they usually listen to the radio to know about news. Some people like to listen and watch, so they usually spend their time to watch the television. The others one like to read, so they search news by reading a newspaper or a magazine. They like to read news when they have a free time. Sometimes they read news when they are in the public transportation.

If we read news through a different media, sometimes we get a different meaning of that news although it is the same news. When we just read the news by newspaper, we try to imagine about what the editors write in there. We try to guess what happen exactly through what we read. When we listen and watch the news through television, we need to think less than when we read a newspaper, because we do not need to imagine. We can see news clearly through television and know the meaning of the news.

News editor needs to choose what to broadcast through what media. They need to make it simple. They need to make people understand easily about the news. They need to recognize the response of the people who will watch their news.

The main purpose of news is to make people know and understand about news. The news editor needs to make people get that purpose when they watch, listen, or read news. All news have message to people. The news editor must have a good way to broadcast the bad news. The news editor can give an example of the way a thief does their action. It will make people be more careful. The other one is about the burglar. People can know about how to keep their house when they want to go.

When people hear and know news, they need to look at themselves. News is good to know, but not all news is good. When you hear news, understand it, take the good one, and throw out the bad one.
