The invention of the radio had a tremendous influence on the world.It is able to bring up-to-the-minute news to distant places in a matter of seconds. The development of the radio has made the world a smaller place.
Television, the most recently developed means of communication, allows us to see as well as hear the news. Being able to see visual images has greatly influenced human's perception of world events. We select our leaders as much by their acting ability as by their political views. Each day television changes our perception of life on earth.
