Reliable Online News - "Straight From the Horse's Mouth?"

Today, the internet seems to be the fastest way of spreading bundles of information and global news all over the world like wild fire. Conspiracy theories, updates on the War in Iraq and the return of Katrina, all have used the extensive internet coverage of the cable plugged, satellite covered world to bring in the latest updates. There seem to be numerous online magazines and news sites for people of all regions to connect to and stay updated.

Newspapers, Sunday magazines and paper back digests had been in the lime light for quite some time, but with the advent of technology these too have transformed. What we refer to as constantly updated news sites provide extensive information, more accurate and fast and all that for free. Although online news sites are commonly understood to be reliable and authentic that may not be the case always. Thus it is very important to choose the best networks and the most authentic sources for your news. You may find this a little hard to swallow sometimes but switching on to famous news channels such as Fox News and Al-Jazeera might be a little more comprehendible.

Politically people try to play up with the Muslim news and the Islamic world and try to manipulate the events and news in their favor blackening the Muslim population. Middle Eastern countries really are part of the Muslim world but the way they end up being manipulated by the political parties who try to hold the positivity of the Muslim world and try to upgrade its problematic issues so that people will only be able to see what they are shown.

In this globalised world we sure need to keep up with the world business news as what happens in one part of the world also has a bearing on the economic position of the other part of the world. Though there are positive benefits of breaking news and accessing World news from all parts of the world there are still hurdles to overcome as our fast paced technical world is still not ready to face the challenges of our narrow minded thoughts that act as hurdles and create problems even in the path of truth.

Using media in a positive way to bring peace and unity in the world instead of creating complexities is the only positive way that we can emerge winners and live in a peaceful world.
