Does the Media Influence Everyone?

Extracts from this document...


Does the Media Influence Everyone? Argue Your Point for Either Side Making Sure You Make A Clear Argument For One Side. You do it without even knowing. Everyday you are influenced by the media, when you wake up, one of the first things you will do, and I speak from experience because I do it my self, you will look at your mobile phone, turn the TV on, turn the sleeper timer on your radio or check your emails. It doesn't seem like much but already straight away in your lives you're being influenced.

If they read a magazine or a newspaper they are being influenced, by what the paper is saying that paper is influencing. If they read reviews in these papers/magazines then again they are being influenced to believe that the product being reviewed is good or bad. I can safely say that I don't think there is another side to this argument, but if someone was to come up with an argument I would spend some time to read it, but as I found in my background research, no one thinks there is at the moment, and I would have to agree, so until the time comes and there is an argument I will just believe what I have always believed since I took this subject: that the media is the most important thing in the running of the world. ...read more.

    No matter what kind of promises these ads make or even hint at, believing they will come true because you buy or use the product does not make it so.
