Media, evil?
    #1527161 - 05/07/03 12:03 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

We all know the media gives a one-sided view of things, and that the media of other countries (and possibly this one too) uses people such as reporters and people likke Sean Penn who go to other countries protesting war as propaganda tools. So my question, is the media (and I don't just mean America's media) evil?

We all know the media gives a one-sided view of things...

eh... maybe some things, some of the time... and who is 'the media'?

a poor debating technique

the media isn't evil. they're just selling a product. some people like to hear a certain kind of news. some people, in times like these, won't put up with an 'unpatriotic' news station. what do you expect? it's just business.

some media is great, some of it sucks ass

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

I think the media is generally good for giving you facts to work with. Many people dont take the extra time necessary to compile the facts and think..."Hmm..Does this make sense?". Therefore, the Media gets demonized.

Pay attention to the news, but take what you hear with a grain of salt.

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
