Radio, television, film, and the other products of media culture provide materials out of which we forge our very identities; our sense of selfhood; our notion of what it means to be male or female; our sense of class, of ethnicity and race, of nationality, of sexuality; and of "us" and "them." Media images help shape our view of the world and our deepest values: what we consider good or bad, positive or negative, moral or evil. Media stories provide the symbols, myths, and resources through which we constitute a common culture and through the appropriation of which we insert ourselves into this culture. Media spectacles demonstrate who has power and who is powerless, who is allowed to exercise force and violence, and who is not. They dramatize and legitimate the power of the forces that be and show the powerless that they must stay in their places or be oppressed.

INTRODUCTION Language is the set of symbols through which consumers understand the world around them by consuming and at times themselves creating highly personalized messages on interpersonal and mass communication levels. Propaganda involves the production of ‘information’ as well as its dissemination. Christopher Simpson, in his classic book titled “Science of Coercion,” saw propaganda as a part of coercion . Propagandists use production and dissemination to manipulate the opinions of target audiences through propaganda by tailoring messages in the media to impact the connotation with which the target audience is bound to sway on a particular topic. In order to understand the impact of propaganda on a society and its effects on personal lives of a target audience, researchers need to study interpersonal communication theory and its association with propaganda.

The second theory was named Second Order Agenda Setting, which builds upon the first idea, adding that the placement and repetition of a story increases the importance that the public places on the issue.

As an essential agent, media is mainly responsible for entertaining and providing information (Virginia, Priyanka and Sunita, 2013: 38; Happer and Philo, 2013: 321). At the same time, many scholars believe that, as a widely used agent, mass media is also one of the major sources to disseminate social norms and ideologies to maintain social stability and create social conformity (Sonderling, 2007: 317). Since mass media is powerful to construct common values and norms, sociologists believe that the gender codes would be constructed and released consciously and subconsciously by various mass media, to shape people’s thoughts and actions, and restrict the unexpected gender performances (Vagdevi and Shantharaju, 2014: 140). Therefore, several theories of media studies were proposed to show the relation of media and individual’s thought: 1. The ‘Hypodermic Needle Model’ (also known as ‘Magic Bullet Theory’) is proposed in early stage of media studies which radio and television were the two major sources for people to receive information.
