Does the Media Have an Effect on Our Society I dont believe the violence we experience today is due to video games movies music etc I think its due to the media For example if the media hadnt publicized the first couple school shootings so heavily I know these kids that did the shootings at Columbine wouldnt have gotten the idea to do so These boys just wanted to be known and thanks to the media mission accomplished Now the question is if the media keeps covering this story on the shootings when is it going to happen again Tomorrow in a week or maybe next year Since the beginning of our now known media they have been known to jump on the blame bandwagon looking for answers as are those who lived there I disagree with the claim that music movies and video games made them do what they did The media has been ignorant in passing the blame in this tragedy There were many variables involved in what occurred not just the known movies video games and music The media on a lesser note has also mentioned a lot of other things music parents ridicule and mental illness among others Yet the thing they dont acknowledge is the medias role in glorifying violence It seems like every day the media has a special report on some murder The kids couldve just as easily picked up the idea from watching the late night news It has been proven that aggressive people tend to enjoy violent movies games and music but people who enjoy violent movies games and music are not necessarily aggressive people Like a square is a rectangle but a rectangle is not a square The sad thing about this faulty logic is applied by thousands of ignorant people to movies games music etc One thing the media hasnt let go of is the effect Marilyn Manson has had
