Integrating Style This style indicates high concern for self and others. This style is also known as problem solving. It involves collaboration between the parties (i.e., openness, exchange of information, and examination of differences to reach a solution acceptable to both parties).

Confrontation involves open communication, clear¬ing up misunderstanding, and analyzing the underlying causes of conflict.

Mass media’s nature and role in society is of communication that is written, broadcasted, or spoken that reaches a large audience. Collins Dictionary defines Mass media as “the means of communication that reach large numbers of people in a short time, such as television, newspapers, magazines, and radio” It is prominent, enough to have transferred itself on to society and have created a culture for itself.

. American culture.” Based on the framework laid out on Conspiracy Nation, Timothy Melly, author of two monographs on culture of conspiracy, investigates conspiracy theory in American culture and fiction. His earlier book, Empire of Conspiracy, seeks to answer closely why and how paranoia has become central in American culture and fiction beginning with the Cold War era. It strongly suggests that failure to understand conspiracy theory as a rational response based on the cause and problem ignores the larger social control. As Melly, explains conspiracy “has come to signify a broad array of social
Social cleavages are apparent in parts of the book which is a frequent topic in Comparative Government. Before the war started in Iran, there was a divide between the Islamic fundamentalists and the more westernized population. They had very different beliefs and this caused a divide between the people. This is similar to political cleavages in Russia, which was discussed in class during Unit Three. Some citizens have wanted the past autocratic rule of communism and others have wanted a more westernized democracy for the state.
Perhaps the most recent example is the just concluded US elections where, according to different sources, both the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates used media to pass their agenda.

In the Journal of Political Economy the article “ Media Bias and Reputation” the author tackles the issue of bias representation of the news that effects peoples perception (Gentzkow & Shapiro, 2006). The authors give real life cases of media biases from newspapers such as the New York Times, Al Jazeera and other major news outlets. They also focus on how media biases affect credibility, quality and the reputation of news pieces. Gentzkow and Shapiro give insight on how to understand media biases, which gives the reader an advantage in reading and understanding news more effectively without falling in to the trap of preconceptualizing issues. They give the example of Al Jazeera efforts in creating a bias that is anti American in the efforts of discrediting the American media and their government.
This is the division in which the subject types of the present study – ‘judging, i.e closure-oriented and ‘perceiving’, i.e. open – can be found within the ‘Myers-Briggs Temperament styles’ along with the pairings of ‘extroversion’ vs. ‘introversion’, ‘sensing’ vs. ‘perception’, ‘thinking’ vs. ‘feeling’. Furthermore, within the classification of personality types two further categories can be encountered: ‘tolerance of ambiguity’ and the differentiation between ‘right- and left-hemisphere
A factor affecting news source credibility is news bias, especially on the part of the journalist—which, in turn, results in news being biased. According to Herbert (2001), consumers of the media in today’s technological era have a higher tendency to question the source(s) of news, as well as whether or not that news is biased because of the easy accessibility of facts on the Internet today. This bias can encompass personalization, dramatization, and fragmentation of news sources as well as source bias (Bennett, 1988). Personalization of news is defined as when journalists turn news into “human interest accounts”, focusing more on a particular individual than the issue at hand. Dramatization of news is described as stories about events being
