It has simply been replaced with informed, very intelligent and unbiased reporting. Human Trafficking, Sex, violence and war are some of the most important topics for the money. Television has taken it a step ahead. The borderline between news and entertainment and telling them apart are so distorted, an individual can hardly tell the differences. Newspaper nowadays also carry articles which are based upon claims from unnamed sources.
Most people avoid the truth because it could be ugly, painful, and can possibly cause self-reflection. In today 's society we are so accustomed to fake news and the illusion of it all. To hell with facts, who needs such a preposterous thing! This way of thinking is partially our fault because we have the ability to choose if we want to engage or disconnect from the illusion. The rest should be blamed on the media because they have the power to reach and influence the world.
I have always been interested in the news of Iran, that is why I became a journalist about a year ago. My life is stressful and hard. Living in Iran is not easy, sanctions are being slammed on our government affecting the people here and the government of Iran is not giving people freedom. As I get out of the bed and watch the news broadcast I remember everyday that all broadcasting in Iran is controlled by the state, reflecting ideology of the government. The only news I watched was the State-run Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting channel.
Lippmann (1922) stated that public opinion is a reaction to the content published by media, which could not be a reflection of truth (Ghanem, et al. 2009). According to Neuman et al. (2014) online media is reacting to traditional media as well by being influenced by it but and draw the public attention to it. This emphasize on the power of media and it can make the audience think about what’s is published.
Those afflicted with the disorder believe that everything that happens to them is staged, everyone they know is an actor, and that they are constantly being filmed — but no one is allowed to admit it.” (Goyette,2012) According to Goyette’s research, reality shows also affect the movie stars. On the other hand, watching reality shows makes audience depressed because they see some problems on the television and they think that they may face with that problems. Another effect is that reality shows may cause physical illnesses. In order to watch that reality shows, people sit their couch for long hours. A 2014 study published in the International Journal of Cardiology suggests that human aged 2 to 10 for more than two hours a day is 30 percent more likely to be at risk for blood pressure compared to those who spend less time for watching TV.
They are responsible for degrading a family’s values.They promote bad family values and un-flexible family relationships.

They offer help to the media by bringing attention of issues that media houses may have left out. Citizen journalism gives the audience a broader range of news. A disadvantage of citizen journalism would be the professionalism of it. It would only be a disadvantage if that person does not have the skill or correct evidence to back up a specific story. In order for a journalist to have a good story they would need the particular skills that they get through training but what citizen journalism allows is that it shows us that it’s not to say that an ordinary person is unable to tell the story to the audience.
J.M Balkin stated in his journal that the most effective strategy for hiding something might be to leave it out in the open, and only differ the context in which people view it. Instead of covering up the facts, one should instead seek to amend background reality (Balkin, 1999). Besides that, the prior research has continually documented a hostile media effect in which people perceive bias in sensible reporting on political controversies (Arceneaux, Johnson, & Murphy, 2012). According to Jimmy Chan, voters prefer highly partisan news either because they are accurately ideologically extreme or due to a tendency towards excessive selective exposure are politically “important” (Chan & Stone, 2013). Paul D’Angelo argues that the perception that the news media incompletely cover politics strengthened the political cynicism whereas the perception that news media oversimplified issues amplified feelings of skepticism (D’Angelo & Lombard, 2008).
If act differently media are grossly disregard of democratic and human rights of citizens. It is often said that the power of the media lies in manipulating the public. We believe that it is just the opposite notion: powerlessness of the media to disseminate the truth. If the media cannot resist the influence of different groups, this means that it is not free. It is the subordination of the media and freedom.
