This is important because it connects fake news to misleading others. "All this amounts to a flight from the real world because the only way to sustain the spectacle is by making things ever more spectacular, and thus ever more fake." (Horvat II,2017) This is explaining how sometimes the more interesting an informative is the more fake it can be. This is important to know because it can relate how the more interesting it is the more fake it can be. With knowing that the media wants the consumer to get what they put out, people can conclude that there is fake news in our society.
Although Trump is nearly “too buffoonish to caricature, with political opinions too unsettling to make light of”, his rhetorical style is so inaccurate it practically begs to be parodied, at least in the period when him getting elected President of the United States seemed impossible (Czajkowski). In this period, the humor utilized in mocking Donald Trump is
Governments need some sorts of censorships in place to keep things that are meant to be kept secret secret (Blankley). Certain government missions have been compromised because media sources have gotten wind of the mission(Panetta). Leon E. Panetta (director of the CIA from February 2009 to June 2011) said this about leaks of classified information “When information about our intelligence, our people, or our operations appears in the media, it does incredible damage to our nation’s security and our ability to do our job of protecting the nation. More importantly, it could jeopardize lives. For this reason, such leaks cannot be tolerated.”(cia.gov) Also, censorship helps protect people.
Steven Pinker wrote “Mind over Mass Media” which tells of this claim is more false than true. Pinker reminds us that if technology was actually making us more stupid, then how are we scientifically better than ever before. Critics are believing that the mind is being shaped by everything it is seeing and hearing. The only problem here is the lack of self control people have when it comes to the distracting parts of the internet we use so often. People tend to find themselves reading tweets instead of articles now.
Why Government Surveillance Is Unnecessary Whether people know it or not, the NSA has been conducting mass surveillance on American citizens since the early twenty-first century. Many people argue whether it is good or bad for the people of America, but studies prove that it has a more negative than positive effect. The NSA stands for National Security Agency in which they are an intelligence organization meant for global monitoring of American citizens (www.nsa.gov).They have been known for processing data from Americans and foreign country leaders to find information they are looking for. Government surveillance has a negative effect on society because it invades citizens’ rights, creates a bad reputation for America, and it violates the
Evidence for a causal relationship between biased reporting and viewer 's behavioral change draw out mixed reactions that need to be understood. Ideologically, biased media present one-sided news; thus, confining a section of the population to polarized, influential, and slanted content. Therefore, biased media is bad for democracy because citizens are given information that is bias or slanted towards a particular political ideology. This limits the ability to think critically about which public policies and elected officials they
The greatest issue that the Red Scare acquired was that while Communism was a real threat, it was so excessively exaggerated that it became self-destructive to America. Todays “scare campaigns” occurring in our political discourse are informing our citizens by fear, rather than knowledge and our media is distorting our perspective on current events and causing us to act
That is a wait and see question, but the American voters have spoken loudly that they have no confidence in the current career politicians. And yet instead of listening to the American voters, the Republican Party desperately attempted to discredit the desires of the American voters, whom the career politicians were elected to represent and substitute their own desires. Is that anymore corrupt or dishonest than the numerous scandals effecting the country in the past eight years? How anything can be more disingenuous and in-american than engaging in activities, such as we have seen once Donald Trump received the necessary votes to be the candidate, than disregarding the wishes and votes of the American
So many people are unaware of what it means to be politically correct. Because media is such a big part of our lives influentially, it is important to see how the media is using political correctness in the news. The Plug in produces online headlines that say things like “Treating people with respect is fueling homegrown extremism, claims proudBritish Muslim” and “NC senator compares treating people with respect to Nazi book burnings”. The plug-in doesn 't necessarily make the internet a nicer place but it shows what people are saying when the complain about things being too politically
This bill, and later, act, was extremely controversial. People felt it was an invasion of privacy and it made the government too controlling. Even though there were protests, Congress passed the Patriot Act into law. It was a time of crisis and people were demanding changes to protect our country from future harm. I support the Patriot Act because it helps the national intelligence agencies to catch evil plans before innocent lives are lost.
