Week 2: Media Impact or Business Aspect of Media Blog 2
By Naing Win Aung
I would state that media can impact our daily life. It can influence the way you think and do at the same time. At times, individuals take what they saw in the media for granted and believe that the outcome would be the same as it is the media. However, that’s not true in our general public.
Media can be exceptionally hazardous for its audience when it could be telling the false certainties and making us believe them. For instance, news can be biased or even give false information depending on what the majority want to hear so they could be making up a story that can affect what people may do in real life. Movies, particularly for kids, can sometimes change his or her personalities making them vulnerable to being disrespectful to their parents or older adults due to the media influences.
Therefore, I would not be shocked to hear when people are pointing the finger at media for problems that are occurring in real life. In any case, it is not only the media that should take the blame. Despite the fact that media controls us, the audiences have their particular decision whether to believe it or not.
