For generations, the American public has been subject to the general news media. This subjectivity leaves audiences in thrall, in confusion, in humor, and, often, in anger. News outlets of all forms have a major influence on the general American populace. Daily news broadcasts help the public to stay in the know about major issues-both domestic and foreign. If someone wants to know the goings on in the Italian wine industry, or the German film industry, they might check the internet, but would never look for information in their hometown newspaper.
Many feel that will have nothing to support themselves if they report it violence because the abuser is the breadwinner. Others are scared for their actual life to tell anyone. There has been more attention drawn to the issue over the past couple decades, but only less than a century ago, victims sat in silence and if they spoke out about it, no one believed them and/or no one helped. Even now, there has to be laws just to make the police respond to these cries for help. This is mentioned by Julian Leigh in a book about the different viewpoints of domestic violence: “Because the police are often reluctant to become involved in domestic violence cases, more than half the states now require law enforcement officers to arrest those accused by their partners of domestic violence.” (Roleff 107).
Recently, many people have forgotten why the United States of America was formed, for freedom and independence from a king and state. Some of us even have trouble remembering what rights we do have, due to the gradual but continuous media and educational focus on more current distractions. Few have taken notice, or been able to see through the daily fog of which Iphone to buy or what flag offends who. There is still discrimination everywhere we look being race, body type, the religion we follow. More and more police are being caught on camera shooting unarmed citizens, throwing bombs into cribs during no-knock, warrantless entries, and causing the general public to lose faith in a system of governance originally set up to protect and serve.
In everyday conversations a subject that frequently tends to arise is American politics. During these conversations a variation of sub topics often occur usually pertaining to the Army’s funding, elections, and the different political parties. One of these topics that tends to cause a lot of feuding is the different political parties. In my family alone, we partake in disputes based on our different political parties, I am a Democrat while my parents are Republican. Often, we participate in quarrels over different events that occur in society.
Perseverance: The American way of Journalism The media works hard everyday to create new, interesting, and important stories for their readers, but most consumers don’t see the significant difficulties that the journalists, reporters, and others working in media face. The movie All the President’s Men depicts to the viewer the struggles Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein faced while trying to uncover the truth of the Watergate scandal through investigative reporting. Thanks to their hard work and perseverance, when all others tried to deny it, the truth of the Watergate scandal was revealed to the American people and the appropriate actions were taken to punish those who had participated in the crimes. To understand the movie, the viewer first
Everyone is always under surveillance. Things like this happen now. We are in danger of becoming 1984 because of the use of surveillance, dangerous technology, and censorship which are all by the government. Privacy is valued to a lot of people, but there are people who don’t really care for other people’s privacy at all. As for privacy in 1984, it doesn’t seem to really exist.
According to my survey, a 14 to 1 ratio attests the impact social media has on people’s attitudes and thoughts of the police. The media has a limited amount of information with which to generate a story. Invariably much of that information comes from the angry and grieving relatives of the deceased so the story that is told for many months, as the department’s legal and internal review processes continue, is very much one-sided, almost always casting the police in a negative light. As a person that uses social media daily, I would have to agree. There are always videos and articles posted on social media highlighting unjust actions policemen take toward black people.
In many news stations and media sites they mostly depicted only his ugly side almost showing biased towards the other candidate. Throughout his campaign many things came up about his past and how that makes him a bad person, rarely things would come up about what he plans to do for the United States. Donald Trump was not known for what he wants to do for the United States but what he was done in the past and because of this many people have been influenced by media, becoming the other candidates

There’s a question americans usually ask themselves, is the government trustable? Many citizens would answer no, many americans believe that the government is constantly watching them. The privacy of americans citizens is being violated by the gps trackers in our phones that the government can see and monitor, how the governments listens to our calls and how they store all our information. This is similar to the privacy violations explored in 1984 by showing how in 1984 Big Brother is constantly watching it’s citizens. In the book 1984 by George Orwell, Winston explains that Big Brother is constantly watching them.
