Receiving news from radio is favorable for some people while television is better for others. Preferring radio by some people is due to being more rapid source to the information. While others endorse watching news on television because it gives us more evidences (evidence, knowledge and information have no plural) on events. (Remember the principle of BREVITY. Try to convey your ideas in fewer words. Let me combine three sentences into one: While some people favour radio because it is a relatively faster source of news, other prefer television news for its depth and comprehensive coverage.
This essay agrees that television provides us with a strong proof for different information happening around the world. I didnt get this sentences meaning. The essay cant agree. The writer agrees. Do you want to say: I believe television news provides more clear and logical coverage of news than radio.
On one hand, the radio sets is considered as a quite fast way for important information. Because it is suitable to be used everywhere such as: vehicles, small shops and mobile phones this will give it an advantage. Next time when you want to give reason, prefer SINCE over BECAUSE. Start your sentence with SINCE. Since radio transmits information smoothly while we are travelling or using cellphone, it is indeed more advantageous than other media.
Moreover, it is affordable to a large proportion of citizens so this (Use only one PRONOUN to refer to a noun. You cant use IT and THIS to refer to radio.) it is a convenient source of supply of vital national and international news.

Nowadays, a lot of bias affect affects (Subject-verb agreement.) the reality of stories and there is a discrepancy in resources the source of reports which could affect the reliability of information. these factors could be minimized by strong evidences evidence (Explained above) such as images and videos from the heart of an event.

  1. Learning about what is going around us is a significant part of our daily life. News reading, listening or watching became an integral part of our life. There different mediums available for us to get news. However, people have different opinions about each media. Few are in favor of radio and others prefer TV. I believe TV provide more reliable and accurate information than radio.
    On one hand radio set is considered as faster way for important news. People choose radio for many reasons like rapid Cost effective, portability etc. Radio transmits information smoothly while we are travelling in vehicle or having tea in pavement cafe, indeed it is advantageous than other media. Moreover, it is affordable to large proportions of citizens. It is convenient source of vital national and international news. For example, in 1947 Gandhiji was scheduled to visit Kurukshetra village and to address Indian refugees there. But since he couldn’t make it to there, an arrangement was made for Gandhiji’s live broadcast from All India radio for them. Radio also has disadvantages like missing signal, when we are on transit away from radio transmitters.
    On the other hand, watching news on television is much more reliable. Nowadays we could see there is a lot of discrepancies found in the information from source reports, which could affect the accuracy of information. These factors could be minimized by strong evidence in the form of images and video from the heart of an event. For example, Recent Indian army crossing Line of border, no one had believed the catastrophe that had happened there, without seeing the live video on television. I pen down the conclusion saying although radio is a speedy way to transfer information to people, television is more advantageous as it provides us with more strong relevant proofs on the reliability and reality of news.
