Introduction

An incident on T.V I found disturbing Dan Brookes Media Coursework There are many programs on T.V that are quite horrible and disturbing but I think many programs are meant to disturbing and give the viewer sensations of fear or sadness.

Conclusion

Over all I think that the news is a very good idea and it needs to show shocking images to really get the message across of what is really going on. I think the time that the news is on is quite good but it may be a bit disturbing for some people but again I think the images they show you need to be quite horrific. I will keep watching the news as I think it is good to know what is going on in the world. I will probably now not be as shocked if I saw another disturbing image because I would have already seen something as shocking if not more shocking then any other image. ...read more.
