Considering the magnitude of its popularity, it comes as no surprise that the Internet is one of the most accessed and useful tools for a journalist when researching for, and writing, a story.

People have the ability to access almost anything they would like to while online. In fact, the Internet is the most popular way for people to gather their news information. Because of this rapidly growing trend, newspapers are becoming more active on the Internet as well.

The Internet makes accessing news as easy as clicking a mouse…literally. Websites like Thousands of Newspapers on the Net provide countless ways for people to access news from all over the world, and a journalist can access information for research just as easily.

The Internet is extremely useful for journalists when it comes to research, but it is important to know how to use the Internet while doing your research. You have to know where to go and what to search.

Because the Internet is so accessible, faulty information can be added to many research sites by anyone who chooses to do so. Be careful when browsing the Web.

The best places for journalists to find information are academic journals, websites for organizations, encyclopedias (not Wikipedia) and so forth. Don’t be afraid of the Internet when writing a story. Take advantage of what lies in front of you and put the ease of today’s technology to good use.
