We are surrounded by terrorism whether it is in the form of catchy headlines and stories in leading newspapers, reports by prominent journalists, double fold surveillance or security measures by the police to safeguard us; each and every activity of human life is shaped by trepidation of this proliferating phenomenon. The role of media in shaping the opinions, ideas, point of views and attitudes of the audiences cannot be challenged. Media presents them information and facts about what is happening around the world and how these events affect them, formulating their perspectives. However no terrorist activity can have pervasive influence until it is given maximum exposure by the media. Messages are distributed through a systematic projection to places that are virtually far away from the country or region, where the terrorist activity has taken place; with the aim of proliferating an innate perceptible threat or fear of terrorism at large.
Good Morning everyone, welcome to my seminar presentation my name is Vincent and today I’m going to talk about Media and my focus is on whether or not the information contained on mass media platforms are biased. The term bias refers to the tolerance of personal opinions to determine judgment on opposing or supporting a particular party. The existence of mass media are separated into various different forms, however in this presentation specifically only news related media will be analyzed. This presentation will argue that the information in mass media are not free from bias for the following reasons: Firstly, the existence of media bias causes provision of inaccurate information to the society And secondly, there a usage

The media has consciously shaped the minds of thousands in such a way that the white majority unconsciously blame anyone who’s different from them. Do you pay close attention to how the media breaks news to you? The news that most of us receive from mainstream media blatantly feeds us a biased distortion of the truth. The favoritism towards white people (whether they’re criminals or not) and the demonization of people of color (whether they are victims or not)in mainstream media is almost suffocating.
In today 's world, we can 't go a day without seeing media. Sometimes the media can be violent, and sometimes that violence can cause children to act violently. In Fact, there have been multiple cases of people acting out in violent ways that has led back to the effect of media, people have even died because of others watching violence. One example of that would be the well known case of the Slenderman stabbing where two girls stabbed their friend 19 times to please the fantasy video game character Slenderman. Many teens listen, play and watch violence and say that they don’t feel they have been affected by media violence in any way.
This essay will argue how the public's perception of mainstream culture dictates the rendering of social inequalities in terms of race, gender, and class into media images. This follows the changes in special attention to the role that the mass media plays in the process of anomaly elaboration, and due to complicated social operation through which moral panics are forged. It will further argue that a societal reaction towards people and their cultures is true, because of how subcultural knowledge is disseminated throughout the community by the myriad of overlapping connections in which a population belongs to. One of the ruinous forms of media images is that it has forged societies unofficial interpretations of normalcy. The audience then
Moreover, stereotypes are the media predators that exist whether we’d like to admit it or not. We are all a subject to messages presented on the television, Internet, and publications. Stereotypes involve ethnic, racial, and even gender-based stereotypes. We cannot deny the fact that media stereotypes have influenced the way we think one way or another, and has implemented some thoughts that has left us doubtful towards their credibility. This is a crucial worldwide issue that affects many people around the world, yet a lot of people are not aware of.
these stereotypes have escalated and strengthened. People call the modern age the age of freedom of thought but even now many ideas and misconceptions are the result of Ethnic Stereotypes for a majority ethnicities especially due to misuse of media in manipulating the thoughts of today’s societies. Many claim that with time we have learned from our mistakes and such mind sets have diminished but looking at world history, rather than change, it is repeating itself. When considering Stereotypes we also consider the different varieties and categories that fall in it. The following are some of the main stereotypes that exist in the modern world: Ethnic Humor
The result of the media’s focus on one negative aspect alone means that all the people of Islamic world come to be understood in the same negative and paranoid way, i.e. as a threat. So when we think of people who look like that and come from that part of the world, we think fanatic, extreme and violent. Said argues that understanding a vast and complex region like the middle east in this narrow way takes away from the humanity and diversity a millions of ordinary people living decent and humane lives
it often exaggerates the comments made so as to make news out of it. This results in even simple of statements being turned into controversial by the media. For example if one were to say "you stupid German man" the media may sometimes blame the person for calling all German's stupid which is not the case. This media miss representation has lead to people become more and more sensitive to things that were in the past considered acceptable to say . This importance created for political correctness by the media is hypocritical and not genuine as it does not condemn someone for insulting someone but for their personal gain of making news.
