The media include print media such as newspapers and magazines, and electronic media such as radio and television. The word media is most often used to refer to the communication of news, and in this context means the same as news media. Media and mass media are often used when discussing the power of modern communications.
Programs or reports are transmitted or broadcast live in a live broadcast, with events seen or heard as they happen. There is, of course, a lot of competition between broadcasting and publishing organizations. High audience figures attract more commercials to be shown in commercial breaks between programs or advertising published in newspapers and magazines.
Multimedia is the combining of TV, telecommunications and computers to provide information and entertainment services that will be interactive. Users are able to interact with the programs and influence what they see.
The press usually refers just to newspapers, but the term can be extended to include magazines. Newspapers are tabloid, a format usually associated in the English-speaking world with the popular press, or broadsheets, associated with quality journalism. Tabloids are sometimes referred to as the gutter press by people who disapprove of them. Tabloids often have large circulations and even bigger readership. Papers such as these are often referred to as mass circulation papers.
