Advertising Synthesis Essay The growth of media has paved the way for numerous outlets for advertising. Millions of people reading magazines, watching TV, listening to the radio and surfing the web are constantly bombarded with ads for different products or services. Although the creation of media has given us great power and knowledge, we see its consequences in our personal lives and in society as a whole. Advertising has altered the perception of wants versus needs, which has led to a significant change of the economy and its consumer capital. Whether many would prefer to admit or not, advertising has changed society- modifying the way Americans think and act in today's day and age, though not entirely for the better.
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.
In fact, many people believe that new media will one day replace traditional mainstream media outlets. However in this essay I will attempt to prove that New Media will not completely replace old media but rather change it, while transferring the power from governments and corporations, to the people. To do so I will start off by studying the users of new media and its audiences. I will then analyze the way it’s used. And finally explain how it has impacted mainstream traditional media, journalism and society as a
Why you ask? Technology changes every day. There’s always something new out there that will determine whether or not this product is purchased or consumers decide to go with a competitor’s product instead. This I know will have a major impact of this type of product but regulatory trends I’m not sure of. The U-phone can help with politicians and legal people doing business from the comfort of their homes but I don’t know if this will last.
Cristina Dumbrique Mr. Miesko Writing 39B 5 December 2013 Writer’s Memo With technology constantly changing in the US, I wanted my audience to realize that just because something new seems good, it can have negative side effects that will not be seen until later. I accomplished this by publishing an article in the commonly read magazine Parenting that is geared towards mothers. I chose to assume the role of the executive editor in order for the audience to see that this information is coming from a reliable source. This article appears in a section of the magazine that reviews new, relevant products and evaluates how safe they are for family oriented use. One product in particular, a new nicotine-dispensing device, has been recently
The West Virginia Chemical spill had occurred several times before. The government is not looking at the safety of the citizens and only at how the chemical spill could bring profit to the economy. The government was also the one to shut down all schools in the regions because they were concerned of the safety of the children. But they only shut down the school for a day because they could not afford to loose any more money in the economy then they already did. The government stated, “All business and government offices will reopen Monday.” That is a day after the chemical spill.

They create a sense of when each new phase of Leeland’s life begins: Vietnam and Selma, and the redefinition of ketchup. They also give a sense of existence of a bigger world beyond what is written about Leeland’s.
A terrorist threat/ attack and a nuclear threat are real attacks that still go on today in our country and our people are scared of. In my opinion both of them are alike. They make the government have to evaluate everything that is going on and it deters the economic growth in our community, on this causes the government to take advantage of their view of defense against an upcoming attack. A war and an attack such as 9/11 are two different types of attacks. And these are attacks that people will forever remember.
As the technology era advances, people are gravitating closer to a television where as reading a newspaper is considered an interest from the past. The television audience is failing to realize the main point of T.V., including news programs, is to keep people watching so that sponsors and others can make more money through ratings and increased interest in products. In “How to Watch T.V. News”, Neil Postman and Steve Powers state “Anyone who relies exclusively on television for his or her knowledge of the world is making a serious mistake” (x), This statement is true, for television news is not solely reporting what actually occurs.
