Pro

when ever a news comes out media sensationalizes it in order to make it more attractive and it adds some fake news's to make the news intresting
RealLifeRick

Con

The news gives the people what they want. A quick rundown of what's going down in their general surroundings. What may be sensationalizing to you is just heightened emphasis to another. A common citizen may not know the importance of certain events unless the heightened emphasis is placed. The importance of certain events are subjective. So what one person may find important, another may find completely irrelevant. The one who finds the certain news irrelevant (like you for example) will then claim the news is sensationalizing that topic. Also if you cannot prove this "fake news" you speak of, than that part of your argument has no purpose or relevance whatsoever.

I'll accept if you clarify your stance. I see two possibilities:

1) Pro - Media sensationalizes news, Con - Media doesn't sensationalize news.
2) Pro - Media is right to sensationalize news, Con - Media is wrong to sensationalize news.

Please notify me at the earliest. You can post a comment or send me a PM.
