I would definitely say that Comedy Central's Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report are part of the "media" that affects people’s opinion. These television shows are a way to provide comedic relief to the issues our economy faces; however, these shows still have an impact of how the viewer will understand an issue at hand. It is very difficult for anyone to be completely unbiased and with constantly hearing other people’s opinion through the media. We cannot make a decision of how “we” feel about the topic. Thus, democracy and a fair voting group become tainted.
Since the 1960’s, the television has been influential in the United States presidential elections. Visuals shown on television tend to have a negative impact on who is selected during elections. For instance, Television affects who is elected by moving candidates from pursuing issues to pursuing images. In other words, television causes people to look more on a candidate’s physical features and social status other than the literal issues they plan to fix as President. Consequently, this is caused because television restores the feeling of direct contact within our society which causes people to feel like they know their Presidents and therefore cause elections to be in favor of the candidate with the most admiration from the community.
He even questions himself when he says “I wonder sometimes how things might have turned out had those ads actually run. Not so much whether I would have won or lost but rather how the voters would have perceived me…” (133) Obama just stated how he cares more about how the people views him rather than his endorsements and rather than him losing or winning. Obama has been very blunt about his passion of serving the people of the United States of America time and time again, and he believes every politician should hold that component lose to their hearts rather than taking these offers from endorsers and expecting “special interest” out of them. This can be prevented in the future if politicians would focus on the big picture of the people and how to better the country and the people rather than their political race. Not only focus and care about the people, like Obama displays, but also for the politicians to change their attitude and views.
How one interprets this information and correlates it into their personal beliefs and actions can be overwhelming. This can lead to strong convictions that politics in general are disintegrated and are irrelevant. Apathy towards the government and politics becomes more of a norm for some people, so why bother to vote at all? What is the incentive and why should it matter? I would address these issues with someone who has these dispositions in a number of ways.
Chloe Mballa Pd: 4 The War Room Assignment The Warm room is an insight documentary on what campaigns usually do and how they increase popularity for their candidate. It shows how the media is also involved in presidents and show their role in them, The media plays a crucial role in presidential campaigns. They can either make or break candidates.

When significant things happen or the nation is on alert, we as Americans rely and trust what news reporters, radio stations, and newspaper journalists have to say. However, current media nowadays tend to report with more biased opinions and less fact. Often times, we would hear about celebrities such as their engagements, scandals, DUI cases in which all are sold to catch the media’s attention. As a society, we seem to always focus our attention to things that are less important to our lives, instead of being more cautious and aware of news that can affect our daily lives. The televised newscast selected to compare is CNN.
Printing news differs because the visuals are flat, has more text to read on, and actually provides more important news. In the novel written by Postman and Powers, “How to Watch TV News,” it talks about how the TV stations just simply want to make profit for their own benefits by creating “their” input in the stories. TV news does capture the audiences in watching because it consists of moving pictures, gossips about celebrities, and is actually a “theatre” of news than an information source. The novel also states that at random and unneeded times; the news would just talk about the celebrities’ lives, such as Britney Spears or Oprah. There is several important news that needs to be heard and seen, but the TV news wants to bring in more audiences.
Thus the ignorance of political knowledge that originates from the lack of mandatory education on topics regarding politics is counteracted by the media, which encourage people to participate in political discourse. However “the effects of Newspaper Political News on the political discussion dropped considerably with the introduced of a cognitive variable of opinionation” (Kim&Han, 145). This indirectly proves that the majority of the people in Korea are silent listeners that are easily moulded to a viewpoint due to their continuous exposure to strongly opinionated media that does not provide any space for individual thoughts. Being unbiased, to some degree, is crucial for any media forms to be able to

Most people have a basic understanding of obedience; however, many may fail to see the application and the impact of it in their own lives and in our society. Submission into conformity discourages the type of independence that is valued in our supposedly free-thinking world. Censorship is one of the major themes in Fahrenheit 451, and its impact is illustrated through submission in appearance, behavior and thought. This invites us to draw clear relationships between Ray Bradbury‘s novel and our current society. The association between appearance and social acceptance is already apparent in our lives.
