After the development of science and technology became flourishing, many online media appeared one after another. The content bureau manager of corporate affairs of Alibaba Group said that after the rise of online media, the life of paper media has indeed fallen sharply, and the paper media must make changes before it can survive.


Eva Lee, the content bureau manager of corporate affairs of Alibaba Group, who has served as a reporter in several newspapers, agreed with Mark Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of The New York Times, mentioned the life of paper printing in the last ten years when he was interviewed by Consumer News and Business Channel(CNBC).


Lee pointed out that even without waiting for ten years, printing may not exist after three to five years. Now, there are fewer and fewer print media, and even if some are still printing, the number has been falling. Lee said that paper media does have a chance to die soon.


However, many paper media have now opened a web version at the same time, setting up instant columns, shooting short films and so on. Lee said they have to survive and embrace new things is a must.


“In addition to watching news or other information on the Internet, it is not excluded that there will be new forms for readers to use in the future,” said Lee.


Lee said texts and short films are no longer only spread in a plane. She gave an example and said that there are virtual reality and augmented reality. In the future, there may be opportunities for people to enter another environment and see media-related information, not just news, but also movies and concerts.


There is a paradox that the most precious resource of paper media is a professional journalist. But since the media and the filming of the whole people are prevailing, any photo or film released by the public can make a single news, and the function of professional journalists has gradually weakened. In this regard, Lee said that she did not agree.


“Professional journalists cannot be replaced because they will analyze and study after the interview to make the readers understand the incident clearly,” said Lee. She said these are not something that anyone can do by uploading photos on the street. Lee said technology has enabled many people to participate or integrate into the media and communication at any time, but traditional journalists are still very important.


Some people said that the biggest drawback of online media is the lack of credibility. Even in this era of online media, there is still no high credibility. Lee said that she did not think that the online media is completely without credibility. The reason is that some of the media are transformed from traditional media. They have deep-rooted traditional principles that require circulation and will not falsify news. Lee said it is very important that the ethics can be passed down.
