The media no longer can be trusted in society. It used to be great for America because it would inform the public on what situations are going on. Now, each media station only reports on what they report on and doesn't report on anything that will go against their political opinions. Therefore, it is making society corrupt.
Oh, definitely yes. There are hardly any limits whatsoever on the things they will allow in the mainstream media these days, and so there is a lot of stuff that is seeping out there now that formerly the censors would not allow. The more this happens, the less of a "shock factor" there is on a lot of things. Where formerly people would be shocked by vulgarity or even partial nudity in things, everyone is getting so used to this now so they're all sort of blasé about it. People seem to push the censors more and more because of this, and worse and worse things are being allowed to be shown and heard.
But I don't think that means we need to censor the media. I think that as people, we need to remind ourselves of what is the most important thing out there. I think it's vital for us to focus not upon the media, but to focus on ourselves and providing goodness for those around us.
The media while always have an influence swaying public opinion and a country's culture. The media, in terms of the broadcast news, has been corrosive on the trends that get set. However, we currently live in age where everything is moving digital. Online media is so vast that it is a vastly different monster than television.
The media has the power to alter society in many negative ways, But they do not care. All people in the media are after a vested interest - ratings and money. They don't believe in anything real. If they believed in equality, Why do they perpetuate negative stereotypes? Their coverage is based on shock value and what will gain the most attention. If the media cared about the black community, Why did the music industry start celebrating gangster lifestyles so much so that the rate of gang members rose considerably after the rise of gangster rap music? And now music is still corrupting young minds today with ignorance, Misogyny and emptiness. It's a fact that violent crimes are disproportionately shown on the media compared to what has really happened. Mass murders are on the rise now because the media celebrates violence and gives them so much attention, So that now they're commonplace. Why did trash television start airing (Jerry Springer, Maury, Etc. )? The media knew this was wrong but aired it anyway for ratings. You're labelled as either someone who loves everyone or is a person who is full of hatred if you don't go along with everything the media says. Nothing any of the media says - whether it's the news or any idea they're pushing - can be trusted. They make people feel as if they can't think for themselves when everyone is put into a box. The media has led to even worse racism, Misogyny, Confusion, And hatred. What is real, What are people's real opinions and what is a result of the media's manipulation? It's hard to tell anymore.
When any terrorist attack goes on or something such as a gang bang happens, the demographics of Muslims and black people are usually the people who are looked at first. And when they are, the media is first to take on their narrow idea of the two demographics on to be a terrorist group of people who only desire bad things and harm to everybody
Think about all the things the news have said to us. It's all about controversy that is happening in the united states. It splits up our country into pieces and have us do nothing but fight with each other. I think the media should be heavily watched and not allowed to stir up controversy.
The media is NOT a reflection of society. Media is driven BY IT'S FOCUS AND WHAT IT WANTS TO REPORT AND propagate. One has to ask oneself - who is front and center of everything? The media. Who reports falsehoods and exaggerates according to what they want us to believe - the media. Who has a positive or negative "picture" of someone or something and pushes it in the face of other people - the media. The media no longer lets us choose - it batters us to death with their destructive propaganda. It must have been media reporters that tried - again, to spoon feel us more lies (on the no side of this). We are on to you media - you've already been exposed as the liars, deceivers and bluffers that you are. Even thou exposed, you continue going around handing people the "proverbial apple" with a sly smile on your face -while your media brother hisssssssses in the background. Remember, were already liberated from the media lies - now we just have to ignore them - COMPLETELY. I drop of poison a day can kill you - especially hemlock - so deceptive it looks drinkable. Don't waste your time trying to rationalize what the media says - lying is not rational, fair or bringing us all together as a country, instead it is the poison that continues to take down one person, one group, one state, one country at a time. REFUTE IT! DON'T TOUCH IT. STAY AWAY FROM IT. LET THEM TALK TO EACH OTHER AND DAMAGE THEMSELVES. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DON'T INVITE THEM INTO YOUR HOME (that is what they tell us, we want to hear what they have to say). Remember - one drop . . . Can kill you.
Just look at the bias of media pundits. There is no integrity. Media injects themselves into the story much to often and begins to believe that they are the story. Money and power has corrupted the media. When you have 1400 media organizations controlled by six companies, it wrong. If you control the message then you can control the masses.
All types of media have an agenda. All media sources often refuse to even talk about certain stories because of their political bias. They refuse and censor certain things because politicians and wealthy business owners pay media to tell them what they want to hear. Many viewers are unaware that the media has an agenda that they want you to believe. Any thing even if it 100% true, the media will refuse to talk about it will conflict with their agenda. The media likes to push a narrative that white on black crime for example is this big thing that everyone should worry about and show cops as racists while refusing to show that most who were killed by the cops were people who did not listen, commit crimes, threaten cops, etc. The media refuses to talk about black on black crime, because it benefits by keeping people upset rather than giving the people a more accurate understanding because the more people are angry the more stories are created to push their narrative further. The media does not care about the truth, they only care about pushing the narrative into the minds of viewers, and making money. If you must use the media as a source, take what they say with a grain of salt and use multiple sources many of which are not mainstream. Do not be afraid to listen to stories that conflict with your world view. They might be the ones that are true.
I get it all the lazy people and dysfunctional humans but its also its own society itself so many people live on the internet and still have jobs to this day and are functioning people in our society and gaming systems have improved our social status and we can play talk and enjoy with Friends and family across the world maybe you should just give it a try
Society is an entity on its own, and media is just a tool to help society grow as a unit. (Social) Media has helped with donations, awareness's, and connecting human beings together that has never been done before in all of life on earth. I don't believe the media is corrupting society, but SOME of society is not using this tool for the greater good and rather using it to feed the narrow minded.
No, media is not corrupting modern society. Media is a reflection of society. While it can also influence society, media is primarily a mirror of the state of society. If media is depraved, it could indicate society is depraved, but it does not indicate that the media is what caused this depravity.
