Furthermore, another exaggerated representation of crime by the media is this overemphasis of extraordinary crimes. Felson & Eckert, (2015) discusses the 2 main fallacies about crime, these focus on misconception of crime. The ‘Dramatic fallacy’ is the focus on drama crime that are shocking. Felson & Eckert states that “The media are carried away by a horror-distortion sequence” they find a story that entertains the public and also make profit while forming a fairy tales in the minds of the public then carry on this fable into the next story. While this is happening, the public misconception of crime grow therefore, it is no accident that crime becomes so distorted in the public mind (Felson & Eckert, 2015).
However, it also critically challenges the overly generalized nature of TTM in the context of the complexity of physical activity behavior. Adams and White proposals does not try to resolve these occurring issues. Their belief in a relatively conservative ‘realistic’ assessment of TTM along with subsequent suggestions from commentators (e.g. other stage-based models staging algorithms that are potentially better at stage classification) is clearly one way of progressing. Therefore, the author wants to stop stop side-stepping around the issue and attempt to operate a more expansive consideration of what the intervention could be used for.

According to Waddington, a person could alter McCormick’s position and argue that there only needs to be a “significant potential” for an increase in risk, rather than an actual increase in risk. I would respond by saying that if risks should be viewed in terms of their potential, then benefits should also be view in term of their potential. It would be unfair to have to prove the benefits, but only show significant potential for the risks. I would conclude by saying if you are to judge risks by their potential, then you must do the same with benefits. Overall, I believe violent video games are not un-ethical from a Utilitarianism approach.
The primary proposition of cultivation theory states that the more time people spend 'living ' in the television world, the more likely they are to believe social reality portrayed on television. Signorelli points out that under this umbrella, perceptions of the world are heavily influenced by the images and ideological messages transmitted through popular television media (2003). Cultivation theory suggests that exposure to television, over time, subtly 'cultivates ' viewers ' perceptions of reality. Television is a medium of the socialization of most people into standardized roles and behaviors. Its function is in a word, enculturation.

This can affect the public emotionally, as it heeds them from trying new things, because they are afraid of the unknown and the risks at hand of what might happen. “Overwhelming amounts of available information is having a polluting effect on humans, similar to the effect of industry on the environment.” (Fear: The Emotional Outcome of Mass Media in America by Erin O’Brien) The media is highly influential. Not only is it powerful enough to affect the opinion of an individual, it can do the same to politics. The media has as much power and incentive as the government to manipulate public debate.
Be that as it may, in its effortlessness likewise lies its breaking points. Neorealism is valuable for making general cases about how states ought to carry on, yet it doesn't offer sureties or particular clarifications of how states will act. In the first place, it is flawlessly conceivable that, however the auxiliary impetuses instruct it to do one thing, a state will accomplish something else. Despite the fact that states are encouraged to act soundly and comply with the guidelines of the wilderness, Neorealism offers no real way to anticipate if and when they won't not do as such. Furthermore, while Neorealism gives rules to how states act, it can't clarify or foresee whether and why a state will pick "Arrangement X" or "Strategy Y" inside of those rules.
