These platforms, especially newspapers and television, are still dominant to spread information and to influence society’s behavior. In the challenge of media convergence to the digital and social media era, society confirms that printed media and television produce objective and critical news journalism. The author chose television as an object of study because it is a combination of audio and visual aspects that can give the audience or society complete information, including entertainment.
