These days the dearth of real news is decreasing at an alarming rate. 'News Channels', the most important catalysts that should play an important role in shaping the minds and changing the opinions, sentiments and dogmas of the public, these days have a negative effect on the society. Every time i turn my television on, i am bombarded with news about the latest thing that lindsay lohan did or what paris hilton wore to the awards. A shocking story about some celebrity's new lover is shockingly more important than what happened in Boston a few days ago. News channels really need to change their perspectives and need to focus more on informing people about the happenings around the world that will put their thoughts to work.

This is true, however, news stations also show much needed information, such as the Boston Bombing, The Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, and many other important news updates that you would be complaining about not having if they didn't show it.

See, news channels do provide important updates about things that we would want to know, such as weather, sports, breaking news, etc.
You cannot say that news only provides entertainment, because it provides much more than that.
