media's influence

Media is the main means of mass communication through technology and advertising. The television, newspapers and magazines, internet, radio, and even music are all examples of communicative media. With so much control over social knowledge, it is not hard for the media to thwart people's belief systems, actions, and morals. While some influenced priorities can be quite positive, others may lead to negative outcomes.

I am concerned with mass media's level of control because it can lend its hand towards widespread ignorance, panic, distraction, and immoral standardization. The media’s influence on politics, social conventions, and psychological priorities can all have very significant impacts on the way people live their lives. It is up to the people to make their own decisions.
