This paper investigates the grammaticality and readability of the varied sources of newspapers whether they are printed, on-line news or social media news such as face-book or twitter news and their impact on the readers. To collect data, the researcher designed a questionnaire that measures the grammaticality and readability of the varied sources of newspapers whether they are printed, on line news or social media news such as face-book or twitter news and their impact on the readers. This questionnaire was distributed to on line readers and social media users in November 2015. The researcher could hardly control the number of the participants because Google docs represent the source of data collection. However, 47 online readers responded to the questionnaire. To achieve the objectives of the study and verify its hypotheses, statistical methods such as: charts, frequency distribution of the answers, percentages alpha equation, were used. After analyzing the data the researcher has come up with a result that online readers are more than hard copy readers particularly the readers of face book and twitter successively. More over newspapers manipulating the readers and they do not pay consideration to the grammatical aspects. Accordingly, the researcher recommends that the students should be aware of these things through the orientation of their teachers.
