In the blog post “Is Instant News Healthy” by Amy Burkman, Burkman explores the pros and cons of getting news in the heat of the moment. Burkman mentions that, getting news instantly can be beneficial to those locally affected, but for those who are not it can provide false information.
Response: From personal experiences I do not believe that getting news instantly is a good thing. Many people repost information without having facts or knowing anything about the topic the topic they are posting about. Although, getting news instantly can sometimes be beneficial, when the people who post about the topic were personally affected, or has actual facts about the issue they are posting about.
