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.
While the use of media during elections is common, the use of “fake news” to cover up a sex scandal, both in the film but also in “real life”, is an arguable presumption, but one that I find to be true. Comparing the film and reality, Wag the Dog depicts an idea that I feel to be truthful about American politics – politicians will do anything to cover up a scandal, even construct such “fake news” by the help of a spin doctor and a Hollywood producer. In my opinion, mass media is depicted truthfully as a source of manipulating the viewers. However, the people’s reaction to the news, in my opinion, is not truthfully depicted. I do not believe that Americans are as gullible and susceptible towards the mass media’s content as depicted in the film.
However, many off turn a blind eye to the negative impact it has and will continue to have on society. For instance, although the ability to share images and videos with loved ones instantaneously regardless of where they are in the world is amazing; a simple oversight in the privacy settings could potentially place those pictures and/or videos in the wrong hands, which could be used to bully. In fact, “the depression and anxiety from cyberbullying are significant and have been the cause of many suicides in America” (Richards, Caldwell, & Go, 2015). Therefore, it is imperative that social media is not only monitored, but usage is
It is impacting all age groups into this questionable online networking circle that is this fabricated world around anyone who enters it. This in result enables individuals to access anything they desire on the web. But, the vast majority of our population does not realize the disturbing measures advertisers got to in order to gain profit. This is an issue that unquestionably needs attention, before it does anymore damage in the media. This particular research concentrates on a subculture, in this manner a great deal of its discoveries will be sourced on the web; through eBooks, magazine adverts, commercial adverts, anything viral.
Next, we will have the risk of being offended by what other people say. For example public figures feel danger and fear even if they didn 't do anything wrong. Fake news story or a piece of political propaganda can easily viral and millions of people will believe it because they see it in many places. Another disadvantage of media is the misused could bring harm to our health. The excessive used of social media could have serious detrimental outcomes on both mental and even physical health of individuals.
Twitter, Facebook, Reddit and blogs became sources of information, not only for the public but also for the mainstream media. Mainstream media and social media can often be seen interacting with each other to dispel all this information around the world in real time. With all this information presented, it leads us to question the credibility of the information and news presented to us by the media. If a disaster happens or a crisis breakouts and information is flowing from different directions continuously and un- relentlessly, it is hard to monitor the truthfulness of information and hence its credibility is jeopardized. As a result, this false information is internalized by the citizens and taken as the truth which might lead to unintended
Impersonation is basically stealing someone else’s identity and pretending to be them. While trickery happens when the bully tricks a person into sharing their secrets, outing is revealing those secrets to the public without permission. Finally, cyber stalking is repeated harassment and messages including threats that can cause fear for one’s safety. Therefore, because of the many forms cyberbulling takes, it makes this crime more dangerous and more serious than face-to-face bulling. Since the Internet is now an essential part of every teen’s life, it is became harder to escape bullying; the victim in this case can’t simply leave it behind at the end of the school day.
Should the media be trusted? There have been many recent attacks on the media for being untruthful and biased especially in politics. Many TV networks are taking a side in politics and reporting only negatives or positives about their political party. People are losing trust in the media, especially after the many recent political catastrophes. In this day and age, it is almost as easy to find the wrong facts on the internet than the right ones.
The presence of bias in media is both unfair to multiple parties and dangerous. This is unavoidable as everyone will form their own opinions as time goes by and they grow up in separate environments and are exposed to different things. Language is a wonderful thing, and it allows information to be passed on with or without forms of bias. What a person’s perception is based on can be heavily affected by how this information is passed and this can be a very bad thing. If one know how bias is displayed in media and distorts what is known they will be better informed overall.
