Before the introduction of technology, news processing procedures were difficult, time-consuming, and stressful. Now, journalists can source news using a variety of methods, like the internet and drone technology, to name a few. The data for this study was gathered from journals, articles, books, and websites using the secondary research method. This study was based on the technology determinism idea. The discovery demonstrates that the advancement of technology has resulted in significant changes in novel processing in general. According to the findings, news organizations should incorporate the usage of technology for news processing in order to convey news in a timely and efficient manner.
