But there is a problem at this point that media cannot control public hysteria after it had started. It is obvious controlling the issue, or where the debate heads to is not in the concerns of the media. What media concern about is whether it is a good story, news to sell
According to Gregory Rodriguez the author of “Truth is in the Ear of The Beholder. Studies have shown that people do not interpret information in a fair-minded way. Rodriguez believes if our minds are predisposed to rumors and conspiracies than we are more likely to believe in it. People tend to form opinions based off wants and needs instead of the information provided. Our minds
In that essence of a purpose, Roark was not created to be a realistic common day character, but as an unrealistic character that people, by comprehending Rand’s writing, can then make Howard Roark become realistic in their lives. He was not meant for humanity to see a reflection of themselves in, but as an unrealistic image that they must “...choose to move forward [and] translate… that experience into the actual course of [their] own life; or… spend the rest of [their] own life betraying it.” The norms that is naturalistic literature is challenged by the existence of Roark, and how his character thoroughly act’s out Rand’s belief that “[t]hat which is not worth contemplating in life, is not worth re-creating in art,”. Roark is an icon for all individuals who have lost their souls to the unified thought and inflicted norms that Roark is “...an entity complete in itself, an achieved, realized, immovable fact of reality...saying: [t]his is possible”.
He also argued that scholarly writing from America and Europe presented inaccurate, misleading and stereotyped cultural representations of the East. Said believed these biased perceptions hindered a true understanding of Middle Eastern and East Asian culture. The Westerner tried to cross the line between what they know and what they have never seen it before (University of Cambridge, n.d.). The distinction erupts the word ‘Orientalism’ and separates human into two groups. Today the effect of Orientalism can be identified in any society as it continues to shape attitudes, images, and knowledge.
We can 't make change if the news are biased. CNN for example has been the subject of several controversies at various points throughout its history. If the news are educating the mass population in a negative way how can we really make a change even a
Have you ever got into a argument with someone to the point you do not want to talk to that person? It was probably because you have a different view on the problem. Culture is not the sole thing that informs you on how to view things. People’s views do not only stem from your roots, the very beginning, and the type of culture you associate with. Media and the people you associate with also influence the way you choose to view the world and others.
At first this may sound shocking, we of course know as readers the clock is broken, but maybe we’re unclear on just why this interferes with the acquisition of knowledge? What’s gone wrong isn’t a matter of if the belief is true or false, but rather, one should not arrive at a true belief via a false belief. That is, false beliefs are inadequate evidence for arriving at truth. To further explain Gettier’s critiques,
It‘s an issue that is difficult to isolate and its effects have an impact on the whole population at hand. Different analysis hold different views to it and thus we seek to comprehensively analyze it. In the text by Gilbert and Terrell they have tried to define how liberals and conservative have differing views in regard to policy formation. The socialist opinion to the problem of mass incarceration would be that prisons are not a good place to keep people that may be having small crimes locked up , that the justice system has not come up with a way of dealing with the issues of crime rather than incarceration which already is not a working as expected and also that the government incarcerates way too much people at the expense of the society. They are of the view that RACISM AND MASS
Discourse in this context refers to ‘system’ of using words to represent and deliver thoughts or ideas. Said illustrates in his interview that discourse is unavoidable for the readers, because it codifies the knowledge or fact under certain rules (Film). This indirect codification makes it difficult for people to recognize that they are being led in certain directions by the authority. The direct dominance of the Westerners were diluted and defused into such discourses rather than being left as a concrete knowledge. In this way, it was difficult for people to recognize the presence of the West in descriptions of the Orient.
The goal of the media is to inform its audience of what is happening around them, but oftentimes media stretches its stories in order to appeal to its readers. But, how can one differentiate something from being false if they have never encountered it? Well, one cannot and as a result, they transform the lie to truth and with a majority of the people believing that something is true, what is not true will eventually become true. Pressure from the media imposes certain generalization and characteristics on people that ultimately becomes the standard of doing something or being a certain
Doing this weakens an argument as it makes a writer seem as though they need the crutch of someone else’s words in order to express their own opinions. The audience is not going to have faith in the writer’s plan if most of their body, space they should be using to connect with the audience and prove their own point, is overstuffed with quotes. Quotes should be used to support an argument, not create it. In addition, Eliane used the ad hominem fallacy when she referred to anyone who agrees with Kuznicki’s anti-immigration stance as “ people [who] happen to be a little on the close minded and paranoid side and see all immigrants to be bad people.” When making an argument, the writer should not alienate any potential readers, because these are people who could have been on board with their ideas, until they are verbally slandered. In conclusion, Eliane’s argument had its highs and lows.
