Model Answer:
If I wanted to talk about the best news source, I would definitely pick TV channels as the superior medium. In the first place, it is really available almost everywhere. I usually turn to TV channels on a daily basis when I return home from work. I guess it is designed to hold the viewers' attention for a short period of time which seems a perfect fit for today’s fast-paced life. In the second place, it presents the most recent round-up of the news providing the opportunity for us to see and enjoy live incidents by reporters on the scene. That’s why shared viewing of TV programs can bring families together even for a while. So, I always count on TV as a handy, reliable and efficient source of news.

In fact, TV is my favourite source for news and I watch TV news almost daily. With the fast pacing life, it is often tough to totally concentrate on radio news or daily newspaper and that's why for the last few years the TV news programs are becoming more and more popular. I can turn on my TV set and there are plenty of dedicated news channels to watch. The handiest part of the TV news is that you do not have to get 100% engaged on the TV set. I can do other things at the same time the news updates get in my ear. 
The audio-visual presentation, the detailed coverage and modern facilities have made the TV news really easy to grasp. For all those reasons, my personal favourite source of news is the television.
