An evolution of News as we discuss it from the beginning of time through today’s events.
Just as man has evolved throughout the years and adapted to the surrounding environment, so as news. This week we discuss “the news,” then and now. We begin by taking a trip back to the times of cavemen, hieroglyphics, the town crier, and the telegraph. We find some interesting bits of information along the way. News feeds of today are so plentiful. An important component of news today is still the newspaper and magazine business, whether that source is via paper or electronic. We have TV and network stations that specialize in local, regional, state, domestic, or international news. The recent events of Lybia, the Royal Wedding, and the killing of Bin Laden demonstrates the power of social media. Join us as we flash past to news sources, then and now.
