Everything celebrities say or do is noted by the media and usually gets leaked to the public very quickly. In comparison to the time and media of the 70’s, in today’s world we are able to pretty much get any information on almost anyone at any given time.

The activeness of today’s media can be similar to that of the five thief’s trying to place recording devices in the Democratic Party’s headquarters. With every news story, any piece of information can be blown out of proportion and altered to appeal to a bigger audience.
We have the social media to blame for many stories that aren’t told truthfully. The sad part is that some people believe if you read it on Facebook or twitter it must be true. Every day the media is tweaking stories to make their ratings go up so more people will watch them and bring in more money. There are many stories written in print that are true from someone’s point of view but more than likely another person who witnessed or lived through the same event would tell the story with a whole different twist. A major story that was reported with misleading information was a news story over "Fukusima 50".
In 1964, Malcolm X stood before a crowd in New York City’s Audubon Ballroom where he once said, “This is the press, an irresponsible press. It will make the criminal look like he’s the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. If you aren’t careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing. The media is the most powerful entity on earth, because they control the minds of the masses.” In depth, what Malcolm X means by this is that people will often listen to anything and everything the media says without hesitation.
Oceania uses fear, surveillance, and torture to control their people. And, the Party is able to monitor its members almost all the time. In the real world, the abuse of government power in relation to the invasion of people’s privacy and going against civil rights has quickly come to citizens attention and has brought up some concerns. The privacy violations Americans experience today are similar to the privacy violations in 1984 because of surveillance, tracking, and the technology. Nineteen-eighty four uses surveillance to keep an eye on the people of Oceania at all times.

The media vilified Venables and Thompson excessively, only the day after the judgement, the tabloid, the Daily Star headlined quoting ‘How do you feel now you little bastards?’
" In this statement Minow makes an excellent point, perhaps even unintentionally foreshadowing what was to come in America with the rise of mass media, the point that people can be persuaded to action by nothing more than a mere television. Although disturbing, this notion has played out in America at an alarming rate, in essence brainwashing the majority of our population. We see it all the time, people in an uproar over events that have zero effect on them just because they saw it on the television, or when people obsess over
For instance when Swift says on page 1 “But my intention is very fat from being confined to provide only for the children of professed beggars.” The persona Swift puts on in the introduction is a persona of a goodhearted person of society. This use of this specific persona contributes to the suspense towards the reveal of the proposal.

Now visualize being neglected by the English tyranny, thus living in poverty and starvation; struggling to make ends meet.
