I prefer to learn about the news from newspapers. The main reason to this is that newspapers often provide more thorough and in-depth points of view. Given the short duration of TV news programs, they usually only talk about news superficially. On newspapers, you often see graphs and tables that expand news stories' coverage. Another reason for that is that newspapers provide a much wider range of topics, from politics to music, from religion to environment. Television programs have a far narrower range.
