Likewise, Haynie makes a point to expose the effect the media has on the public with its biased portrayal of the negative side of veterans and their connection to mental illness. The public’s opinion is formed by how the media covers a story. It just goes to show that when the media is biased in mentioning service members and how dangerous they can be, it leaves the public with only a violent image regarding veterans.

According to the article by Anna Quindlen called “A Quilt of a Country,’’ there are ideal facts that tell us how we connect to people in the United States, and that is by tragic incidents and communication.

God, Construction, Destruction or otherwise known as Iran 11’09’’01 comes from a collection of short films, made by different directors, where each shows a different perception and response towards the September eleven attacks. Makhmalbaf has utilised a child’s innocent perspective of the world to convey her message in a way where it would not be judgmental or conflicting to the audience, as seen in the way the group of refugee Afghan kids incorporate God into their debate regarding the 9/11 attack, as they say things like “God doesn’t only destroy humans”. The children does not yet understand the horror,
The Susan Dominus article “The Displaced: Hana” is humanizing. By retelling a day in the life of Hana Abdullah, this article puts a story and a face to the well-known Syrian refugee crisis. This mass displacement was a news headline heard worldwide that we’ve eventually grown desensitized to. Giving this crisis a face turned it more personal, showing that the war effects even the ones not knowing why it’s even taking place. For example, Hana often would say that she wishes she was back in her home.

Yes, this bombing reminded me of the 9/11 attack in 2001. Both of these factors are similar because two countries wanted to put their point across. Another similarity is that both times the U.S. thought there was going to be a follow-up attack, canceling plane trips and hiding in fear along the west coast. John Dreifort stated, “One similarity between 9/11 and Pearl Harbor is the fact that these were unprovoked attacks, without
Muslim Americans endured more government scrutiny after September 11, 2001. The United States government decided to monitor this population. This involves surveillance on phones, worship place and funds. The US government needed to pass a law to collect data to use concerning risks.

While the article ‘on sports in the United States, shutting down the day after 9-11’ conditioned our mind to remember that the United States and indeed the whole world is in grief and mourning mood which is well appreciated, the power of narrative goes beyond that. It synchronizes events in order to relate to a broader audience and the power of narrative in any story uncovers every bit of details. Additionally, narrative stimulates the brain to remember complex actions with relative simplicity and straightforwardness ("Power of Narrative – Using Storytelling to Your Advantage | Rothwell Douglas Limited," 2015, para.2). Narrative enables us to relate to events that have happened in past years.
I decided to write a letter from news anchor, Christine Lund, to the artist of the song “Dirty Laundry”, Don Henley. The song “Dirty Laundry” describes mass media sensationalism, specifically in terms of celebrities and how serious news events are reported. Christine Lund was an actual reported at the time the song was written. She was even speculated to be an inspiration for the song. I chose to write letter from her to Henley because I wanted to try to gain the news anchors perspective of the issues addressed in the song.
The United States of America in the 1920s was a period of debate, of shifting values and changing social structures, and was, above anything else, a battleground of clashing ideologies that ultimately boiled down and exploded within the Scopes Trial of 1925. The Scopes Trial was not in any way, shape, or form primarily a conflict of simply one issue alone.

Issues which revolved around racial and gender tensions existed and were debated at length within society, but were completely ignored during the proceedings of the
Film, media and Hollywood have shaped over the years how society views as the norm. They have dictated the way certain races or minority groups are portrayed. If it weren’t for people speaking out about injustices there would have never been a change in the film and media industry. Over decades African Americans have been oppressed and misrepresented in film. It has not only been African American’s but also women.
This screenplay was written about a miner strike at the New Mexico zinc mine and the struggles that the workers and women faced as they fought for dignity and equality. React: If you wanted to get yourself in trouble with the government in the 1950’s. All you needed to do was compose a screenplay to recount the genuine story of the 1951 miner’s strike in Bayard, New Mexico. I bet that you could wager your bottom union dollar that the United States government did whatever it could in its never ending abuse of power to make sure the cinematic message would never see the general populations’ light of day.
