These scenes imply that violence is a part of the everyday life in Iran because Iranians are aggressive and crazy, and that is how they live. These depictions are, of course, exaggerated and not true.

Unfortunately, however, most of what is broadcasted in the news today is with reference to the chaotic condition of this world, or something else that society as a whole sees as damaging. With a negative usage of this mass media, it can conclude that mass media is a mind-manipulation. Just try to open the Television, and you 're assaulted by all varieties of obscenities, delivered by persons publicly misbehaving, in different stages of undress as it programmes containing pornography . The television shows influence and manipulate people’s mind and this is what leads to pornification of culture nowadays as based on Lababidi (2013)
One of the biggest issues with the media is the effects it has on the brain. Media is addicting. People would rather find entertainment effortlessly rather than going out and making an effort to entertain themselves (Winnail, 2003).

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.
As explained by Murphy-Jallali (2017), the Hypodermic or ‘effects’ model relates directly to what exactly it is that media do to their audiences. The audience in this case is seen to be almost hypnotized by the media, which is where the power lies. This model assumes that the media effects the audience negatively, which stems from a position of moral panic. The effects model ultimately portrays the media in a negative light. It portrays the media as a predominantly unfavourable entity which either encourages inactivity and laziness, or encourages unsavoury behaviour such as violence and sex.
Neal Gabler defines entertainment in his book Life the Movie: How Entertainment Conquered Reality as a damaging power which is able to “ruin” society (Gabler, 1998). However, according to Longman Dictionary, entertainment refers to “things such as films, television, performances etc that are intended to amuse or interest people”; to be more objective, it “entails communication via external stimuli, which reaches a generally passive audience and gives some portion of that audience pleasure” (Bates & Ferri, 2010). The contradiction of these definitions shows that entertainment makes both negative and positive influences on society, so it is not entertainment itself, but the way how it is used by human beings has the capacity to “ruin” or improve
He also satirises the naivety of society and how people 's unquestioning absorption of propaganda only encourages the media to exploit them on a broader level. This idea is also illustrated through Leunig’s Sir Good Strong Cardigan where the increasing fear of Islamic terrorism is expressed through a cartoon showing the power that lies in the creation of false stories and information that manipulate the public for political ends. Through both of these texts, we see that people in a position of power have the ability to alter the public 's perspectives in order to portray a particular message.

This shows that the mass media are not a reliable sources as it cannot help people in advancing the younger generation’s quality. Furthermore, mass media also are helpless in eradicating something bad from the society. As stated by Jagbir, “for example, after the attacks of 911 the media gave a huge coverage of the event and exposed Osama guilty for the attack as they were told by the authorities. This shaped the public opinion to support the war on terrorism, the same happened with the war on Iraq” (para.
