The media is known for not always having the facts right no matter how high end it is, but still people taken what they say as factual evidence. An example of this was the Boston bombing tragedy.

Also, they always have to have the people in the photograph sign a release form, to be able to publish the picture. The people 's immediate urge to know immediately is another issue for the Red Cross. In today 's fast-paced social media world the public wants to know everything right away. This has rubbed off on the traditional news media, and stories are often not newsworthy a week later.
The behavior of serial killers is an interesting topic for me, I grew up watching many different crime-related shows and have been curious how the mind of a serial killer works. More specifically, I am interested in how the media affects them. Some serial killers throughout history have taken a liking to being talked about on the news, some even try to pander to the media. Serial killers like the "Zodiac Killer" were known for creating ciphers and puzzles for the public to solve, assuming it would lead them to a clue as to how to find him or one of his victims. With all these murderers making it a point to get attention from the media, I wonder if it encourages them to kill again.
Mob mentality describes how people are influenced by their peers to accept certain behaviors, follow trends. In The Crucible the girls all followed Abby’s example and officials got involved well. In the McMartin parents and children started to follow Johnson’s example and make up stories about abuse. We also can see a lot of pressure between them both. In The Crucible many chose to admit and most of the time were pushed to give other names, meanwhile in the McMartin the police wanted parents to force answers out of their children don’t taking “no” for an answer.

Grace Brown take photos featuring sexual assault survivors holding up the words of their abusers and those around them on a poster. This movement is very moving and revealing of how often sexual assault happens. When it happens, everyone expects the victims to shrug it off and move on with their lives.

The killers behind the Columbine High School, Thurston High School, and Heath High School shootings all had different reasons for committing their crimes, but the signs were ever present. Mental illness, obsession with guns and other weapons, deviant behavior, and hatred openly expressed to others or in homework assignments are the most common ones. Because school shootings have become something to be feared, it is time that faculty and students actively seek out those who may do something rash. If a teacher notices that something is off with a student, he or she should at least pull the student aside and express possible concerns. If a student sees or hears something that may be a threat to the safety of others, he or she should report it.
Thompson said that “she tried to pay attention to every detail of the man who attacked her” and when it came to both the photo and live line up she picked out Cotton. Thompson was also subject to the misinformation effect, after going through the live lineup police told her that she had picked the same man in the photo lineup, making her even more sure that she had the right man.

Also, the terrorist act of 9/11 was described in the news as an act by Islam. As a result, the report misleads the audience to think that all Muslims are terrorists, and people’s knowledge was all based on bias and misrepresentation images by network news.
