News corporations attract viewers’ attention in order to make money, basically benefiting themselves. Networks attract viewers to increase ratings, so that when they would get more advertisers, meaning more profit that they will obtain. News bias make audiences reflect upon the truth of the stories that are being portrayed. There are several deception stories in which the News denied on releasing these types of stories, but in truth, they really are exaggerated perspectives of their own. TV news simply reflects only on one side of the story, and leaves the viewer the other side of the story untold; this is the reason why TV news is biased.
When Americans began to believe that weapons of mass destruction existed and decided that Iraq was providing support to al Queda, the war could be justified as an act of self defense. Bush also told Americans by invading Iraq he would bring a democracy to their country to better the policies and enforce democratic beliefs in their country. The role of the media plays an imminent part in the run up to the war in Iraq. The media repeatedly showed the planes crashing into the World Trade Centers. People were watching this horrific act being shown on every news channel for weeks after the attacks occurred.
Popular Torture Viewer discretion is advised. In Anne-Marie Cusacs article “Watching Torture in Prime Time” she discloses the truth behind Fox Channel’s hit show “24” and it’s use of torture as method of entertainment. The media has become a huge part of our lives for a source of learning, entertainment and communication. Popular media needs to be limited to the context, since much of the information it is unreliable. Exposing violence in the media teaches bad morals and is not supported by the greater good of society.
For example cohabitation is seen normal and is accepted in society today but is not accepted in elder generations. When something is seen as deviant there is normally a stigma that is attached to it and then labelled. Such as polygamy in geographical areas is seen differently, in Pakistan it is seen as acceptable to have one or more partners, but in the UK it is seen wrong and people start labelling people from there. The media has had an enormous impact on society and on the public perspective. The media tends to use deviance amplification; this means that the media exaggerates stories to make them more dramatic which gives moral panic.
What if the truth would either make or break a person or situation, is it still alright no matter what to say it?. In the documentary film farenheit 9/11 Michael Moore delivers a thrilling and captovation story that wished to exposed the truth about George bush. He focuses on exposing the 43rd American president with reference to administration wrong doings and terriost attacks on the pentagon and world trade center. Michael moored intention was to pretty much get rid of bush from the political party, he was bias to getting rid of
This legislation was introduced in a rapid fashion following the attack of 9/11. Because of this, it had some points of vagueness and left it open for misinterpretation. Organizations like the ACLU fed on this and released multiple reports demeaning the substance of the Act. In doing this, it introduced fear to the public that their civil liberties were being greatly compromised. In reality, the majority of the legislation is directed towards people suspected of terrorism.
Vice Presidential Debate 2012: Joe Biden vs. Paul Ryan The mediator starts off with asking about Chris Stephens. Biden makes promises right out of the shoot to me it seems like he is being fake about what he is saying. I understand that in his position he needs to have America like him, but to me he seems a little dramatic about what he is saying. Congressman Ryan comes back with the President taking 2 weeks to acknowledge that was a terrorist attack. “If we are going to be hit with a terrorist attack, we are going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack.” I see how Biden interrupts Ryan saying that it is a bunch of Malarkey.
For example, the tabloids put out crazy stories of made up things just to get people interested enough to buy their paper. Such as the pictures of Michael Jackson's baby, the tabloids showed pictures of a baby, claiming that it was Michaels's baby. When in fact, it was not even his. The press also gets too involved in people's public and private lives. Though, people do have the right of privacy, the press has ways to get around it with their right of freedom and their freedom of technology usage.

But if journalists knew that other news stations were watching them, they would be less likely to do it anyway. The video we watched in class about the truth behind the show “How to Catch A Predator” is a prime example of the importance of the news media covering the news media. Many were skeptical of the show prior the CBS’s special behind the NBC sting operation. People knew
