For the past few years, the daily campus newspaper has included a one-page international news section covering a few of the major stories in world news. Starting next month, the section will be eliminated. One of the reasons the newspaper editors gave for the decision to cut the section is that other news sources are better able to provide wider and more up-to-date international news coverage. The editors also noted that the change would create space for a new calendar page that will list events and activities around campus.
<-NARRATOR:-> Now listen to two students discussing the article.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Hey, what do you think of this?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> You mean the editors' decision?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Right.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Oh, I think they're right. It's the thing to do.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Really? Why?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, hardly anyone reads that section.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> You don't think so?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Not really...I mean, they only cover a couple of stories... and most people already know about them before they even get around to reading the campus paper.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> True. If you get the local paper... or use the Internet,
you already know about the major stories.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Exactly. And the coverage is better.
I think we should just stick with campus news and stuff.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> So... do you think what they're gonna replace it with is better?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Definitely. Right now, how do you learn about what's happening on campus?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Mostly from posters in the different buildings... or in the student center...
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Right.The information is everywhere, but it's hard to keep track of it.
I see stuff posted... but then I forget about it half the time.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> So you're saying that with this new section...
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> you could just cut it out from the newspaper and carry it around and check it any time
and know what's taking place, when, and where.
