The advancements in electronic and computer technology, the advent of satellite communications and the speed with which we can now travel the earth, have combined to produce highly sophisticated news networks in the press, on radio and on television. Twenty-four hour news channels are transmitted in many parts of the world, reports of major events can be logged within minutes and mass production and distribution means that an ever-growing volume and diversity of newspapers and journals are appearing on the shelves. This explosion of the news industry has been one of the phenomena of the twentieth century.
