答案及解析:
1. influenced -> influence
根据上下文的时态可以判断,这里应该用一般现在时。

2. with -> by
begin…by doing sth意为“以…方式开始”。

3. broadcasting -> broadcast / broadcasted
根据意思,新闻应该是通过电台和电视(被)播放的,所以要用被动语态。

4. virtue -> feature
virtue意为“优点,美德”;feature意为“特点,特色”。根据上下文语境,此处的意思应该是用“特色”,所以要将virtue改为feature。

5. later -> late
late at night意为“在深夜”。

6. them后加with
此处是固定搭配provide sb with sth,意为“给某人提供..”,还有另一种同义表达就是provide sth for sb。

7. Therefore -> However

8. that -> as
such as 后接名词或名词短语(作列举),such that后须接从句。

9. complaining -> complain
此处complain与choose是并列关系,

10. its -> whose
由于逗号后没有并列连词,所以断定逗号前后两句不是并列关系,只能是主从关系,所以将形容词性物主代词改为关系代词。此处whose引导非限制性定语从句修饰逗号前的news media。
