Many episodes are based off of real-world problems, and are solved through extensive use of satire. The show creates a stage where the problem in question is so exaggerated that people understand the sarcasm beneath, and can unravel the true meaning of the episode. One episode of South Park has Cartman, a rude little boy who has many troubles about him, arrest a group of Eastern people who are new to South Park because he is afraid of a terrorist threat. In the end, the Eastern people had nothing to do with a bomb threat of course, but a real bomb threat was discovered because of his stereotypical judgements. From this, the morally sound character, Stan, tells the audience that stereotyping people is wrong, but it is also good to be cautious of certain things.
They aren't concerned about the issues, just the most views. "All of us in commercial television are confronted by a difficult choice that commercialism imposes. Do we deliberately aim for the lowest common denominator, thereby assuring ourselves of the largest possible audience but producing nothing but cotton candy for the mind, or do we tackle the difficult subjects as creatively as we can, knowing that we may lose much of the mass audience?" (source F) TV producers know that their audience isn't going to watch a boring debate, so they take out the important issues to get the highest rating. This is just another example of how TV has had a negative impact on Presidential elections.
He tested his theory whit his son when the boy was afraid to climb a tree. His test was successful with the help of old Tarzan comics he inspired his son to not fear. He soon came across pop psychologists insisting that violent stories are harmful for kids. He partnered with Melanie Moore, “a psychologist who works with urban teens; together they found that even the trashiest pop culture can have its own developmental function” (231).

Twenge states, “To many older people, it’s funny. But too many younger people the main consumers of the reality shows on, say, MTV it shapes their views of the world” (pg 7). Narcissism is shown often, and without hesitation on reality TV younger viewers are being conditioned by the depiction of narcissism. Slowly, the excess amount of narcissism seems normal. For instance, on “America’s Next Top Model” young viewers wish to be thin, tall, and overall a model, but go about it in the wrong ways.
Zakia Dixon September 9th, 2010 6th period “The Sneetches” “ The Sneetches” portrays Seuss’s intent to influence young readers views on discrimination and exploration; sues uses the star bellies the plain bellies and Mr. Mc monkey Mc Bean to clearly illustrate his message on the importance of equality and the pitfalls of hate in society.

Bias Analysis #1: Long Editorial I know not one person whom believes that the new reported on television is not liberally biased. I often come home to find my father complaining about the media’s slant towards democratic views yet he is frequently preaching what they report as fact.

In Bernard Goldberg’s book Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News, he attempts to tackle the issue of liberal media bias in the large East-coast news organizations. In his narrative, Goldberg begins by explaining his current situation of exile from media coverage despite his 28 years of service.

It can illuminate and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determinded to use it...... Otherwise, it is merely wiresand lights in a box” (‘Good night and Good Luck’ Movie). As you can see, this quote has strong opinion about television. This movie believes that television is more than just entertainment to us, and the television needs to contain valuable contents that can teach, illuminate and inspire people, and the movie shows Murrow’s television show, “See It Now” during McCarthyism’s era to support the idea.
This article opens my eyes and shows me that America may be going in the wrong direction to stop gun control. This is very useful because I’ll be able to use this as what Gun Control should not come to. Another use of this article will allow me to use a pathos appeal because readers will sympathize with a young boy being suspended from school for simply drawing a picture.
