How Live Streaming and Video Calling Have Changed Media

If you ask people who grew up in the early-20th century about what television and media were like, they might remember seeing newsreels in theatres—programs about global affairs, war news, and economic news were filmed and sent to various towns and cities for citizens to keep up-to-date on the state of the world. In the more primitive days of television news, many people relied on these newsreels to stay informed, especially about the war efforts during the Second World War, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
