Media is evil in both our society and in Fahrenheit 451. If something happened and it is put on the news it's often tweaked to make a story. In the news hey make some things more dramatic to make you want to listen and stay tuned. They usually just twist and pull at the truth, but sometimes they full on lie. In Fahrenheit 451 the media exaggerates. They lie and make little things a big deal. Although normally they don't care about death. If they really want someone dead or behind bars they make it happen with the lies on the news. Media should show both sides of the story, they should tell you what really happened. Not their version.
