News reaches people everywhere and all the time, through the various forms of media. Newspapers, magazines are a few means and of course there are the more popular social media websites such as Face book and Twitter. However, media does not always show us the real picture. There have been many cases where the news has been twisted just for the sake of changing the public’s perspective on the matter. Governments have often influenced the media to manipulate news stories in their favor.
Celebrities will get talked about and then they can also get photographed in the wrong way and this is all too just get a dollar and to make readers like us be interested and want to look more in depth into their lives. With bad media being out there them you sometimes have to wonder what is really true and what is
Child molesters would be set free because of this as well. Which just seems very unfair. If you think about everything that has happened in the media you would see that most big cases are always on the news and though not every case should be publicized it should however be open to opinions of the public. Can you imagine how it would feel to have an input on how someone would be punished? Kind of like a poll, but still having to go through the jury process.
In the end, rape culture is definitely being spread through the media, often in a negative way. Rape culture and its continuing effects on the world are heavily influenced by the media, but that can be changed from a negative concept to a slightly more positive one if people can consistently stand up for the right ideas. It is no secret that once something is placed on the Internet, if it can generate enough interest, it will travel quickly. This can be very bad for the promotion of things like victim blaming and sexualized violence. If enough people see it, it’s going to gather many opinions, and unfortunately, there will be a lot of thoughts that agree with these horrible concepts.
More importantly are the ‘leaks’ that are let out to the media; something that the media is more than willing to run with. These leaks, along with carefully crafted imagery of the war and its participants did take the public’s eye off of the sex scandal; in part due to the ‘credibility’ of the media’s information, because “if it’s on television, it must be real”. The viewer of the movie does have to have a healthy bit of ‘suspension of disbelief’ for this film; especially as things get out of control. But the film does show how the media will and can propagate stories, so long as they get the ratings they want. Even with all the
A smart ruler will understand that the control must be attained over the information source, not the information flow. Naturally, the source is a little harder to control and it can never be controled completely. But, if the proper conditions are created, the majority of the press will use this mainstream source. The minority will find other source, but the sound of their voices will be muffled in the
Should everyone with a child fear that child’s abduction, or is it only a made up reality within the media? The fear of a baby or young child being abducted is natural and understandable. It is otherwise unfortunate that the media is able to use its power to purport a crime wave on a seemingly low-rate crime. Through extensive media coverage, parents and the world can perceive any place as a possible risk for child abductors. This point is expressed by Furedi when he states, “The intense level of media attention paid to the rare instances of baby-snatching has contributed to widespread demands for hospital security.” Frank Furedi is not the only person to comment on media coverage spreading angst.
The pain associated with body image is not a one step process, starting with mental pain then progressing to emotional pain then on to physical pain. Some may say the root of the problem comes from within but what instills the “perfect” image inside the mind of the person? Factors such as media and family can influence the initial thought. The media, especially magazines, publish pictures of celebrities that have been edited to the point that they look flawless. It is very rare that a magazine publishes a picture of someone who is unedited and natural.
I used to live there, I’ll buy this magazine as a result to my deep emotional reaction to this headline so I can read more.” Whereas if it had simply said disturbance or something equally less appealing it may have interested the viewer but not nearly as much so. Emotive writing is in other words as much about selling the piece as it is about good writing. If a journalist is trying to have his piece read and not just printed he will use emotive language in attempts to draw the reader in even if they have no real interest in the topic at hand. In summary emotive language makes your writing more readable, more likely to be read, and more relatable in the way that people can often feel more emotionally attached to a piece with descriptive and often exaggerative
The Powerful Effect of Fake News Without media and news media society would be in disarray. The news provides society with an update on the occurring events and controversies that are constantly happening in our world. No one can possibly overstate the influential power of news media and as well new media of television. Television continues to influence the media, which recently an era of comedic television shows that specialize in providing “fake news” has captivated. The groundbreaking The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and its spin-off The Colbert Report have successfully attracted the youth demographic and have become the new era’s leading political news source.
