Different kinds of the media present us various pieces of information. And we can choose what we like most of all. We can watch the news on TV at home, listen to it on the radio on the way to school or read it in a newspaper travelling somewhere. All kinds of mass media let us get information the way that suits us. All we need is to make a choice: to watch a film on TV, to listen to favourite songs on the radio or to read about sport or fashion events in a newspaper. But the fastest source of information is the Internet, of course. It lets us get any kind of information.
