  1. 1. I will check the Internet to find pictures or vidios about the events, looking through the popular forum as well.
    2. People just read the words to get the news by newspaper. While watching television, can let us know the news more vivid. Not only reading the news, but also listening and watching the news. For the news on the Internet, people can share and discuss their idea and feeling concerned the news on the net.

  2. 1. I usually check it up on the website or SNS. Actually I don’t need to eager to find out about events. It is easy to know some hot topics of day,because someone who knows something interesting events let me know using messenger.

    2. I think that newspapers focused on fact and reported more general topic,and television showed more bigger issue.On internet has more various topics like gossips,very personal opinions..

  3. If i focus in some event .First i may use my cell phone ,download an app about news or something else. Because cell phone is very convenient . Second ,i can search the Internet,and watch on live.
    Then ,i will watch .TV .

    Newspapers ,TV and Internet are all can bring us the news and information ,But ,I think ,the Internet is the fastest way to get the information that we need .TV has the most people use to get the news ,and it is in time but not convenient . The newspapers is a traditional way to get information but it has the time and locate limit .And it is a black-white for word. Not colorful.so it is not lively for people . so ,everyone has it’s advantage or disadvantage.

    -Maybe i will check the internet. internet is most fastest communication tool. Eventhough its unaccuracy, it still has a chance of truth. And i’m friendly with the internet and technology.

    • Do you think that there are any differences in how the news is reported in newspapers, on television, or on the Internet? Explain your answer.
    -First of all, report at internet news is not that difficult. It is quite simple. If i have some valuable information, i can give them to news company. Then, they report it. I did that. But newspaper or TV is not that easy. because if there is not correct news, they got bad reputation, and thet got some trouble. internet news is easy to report a correction article. I think that’s the why they get information in differnent way.

  5. • i’m just check the tv in the news or turn on my cellphone and check the website.
    ㆍ I think on television is more realistic than internet.
    And newpapers i think more read easily and view is compotable than tv and news.

  6. 1, If I want to know to big issue, I usually search the internet news or as usually I check the Facebook because many of people upward about that issue even though that way was faster than internet new so I usually use it.
    2, I think, Newspaper is more focused on reporter’s point view so we can’t see another point view otherwise we can easy to catch on the issue. However Television show us variety kinds of information and it makes us easy to understand but it is too much information and most of company use only commercial exploitation from customers so television is not only use information delivery. And internet news also show us too much information and even though we don’t know which one is true and false information because we can do easy to upward on the internet anyone however, we can fine information and issue easily.

  7. • In the past, the public had to wait for a news report to find out what was happening in the world. What do you do when you need to find out about events that have just happened in the last few hours?
    I’ll search the event through the facebook because nowadays many people are using it. And they also share their event and photos on the facebook. Therefore, people can get the latest imformation through the facebook.

    • Do you think that there are any differences in how the news is reported in newspapers, on television, or on the Internet? Explain your answer.
    I think newspaper is the most reliable in the news media because newspaper is written by writers and journalists. That’s why they write articles with responsibility. However, other medias are unreliable. Especially, on the internet, there are a lot of information. But, we don’t know who did write an article easily, Therefore, it is difficult to find what article is true.

    when it happened some news, i will ask my friend. for instanse, when i used to live in hawaii 3 years ago, hawaii had little tunami because of big earthquaqe from sendai japan. actually, there was just little tunami in oahu. however, at that time, we heard big tunami is comming,and we need to evacuate to high place. also, it was sounded big siren in waikiki.
    so, for the first time, i didn’t understand what’s happened. then, i contacted with close local friend, then, i knew that happning.
    so, i always try to contact with friends about news.

    i think news is reported different way in each country. in japan, if some big news, emargency news, and traffic news was happened, it’s showed top of screen on TV even comedy and dorama program.

  9. I check internet about information which I want to know. If it is a foreign country and I have a facebook friend in that country, I will ask him/her what is happening now. Also I watch TV news or listen to radio because we can know quickly any events which was happening in the world in Japan. TV stations broadcast almost every serious events as soon as possible after they catch new information.

    I think there is some differences and some similarities between them. First, speed to convey information is very different. Newspaper is the slowest, and Internet is fastest, and televison is the middle, I think. Next, accuracy is same among all of them. They are required to report news with accuracy and proper. It is their duty as mass media.
