    Some people dis-like the media because it bends the truth and suits the story to make people buy the object. But some people like the media becaus eit does give the watcher/reader some of the facts and can most of the time the whole truth. What is your opinion on the media in NOW adays times. and i don't mean in WW2 or somthing. i'm watching


    I am 13 years old and i am on here because my mum is always on here and i want to see what the fuss is about.

    It's good

    Because without it we wouldn't know what was happening in the world.

    But yes you do have to be careful because of bias and propaganda.

    It's always a good idea to look for other sources and see what they are saying too in order to get a balance of viewpoints

    Love mumsy x

    The BBC can be just as deceptive.
    Take what you see at face value and make your own judgments.

    media really has no other option then being bad simply because of the nature of the media.The reasoning for this is that in order for you to watch them instead of other news stations they need something more shocking,eye catching, and so on. Through that alot of other good news wont get reported or if it is, its on a slow day or buried under more interesting news. As a result of this you pretty much need to watch a large volume of media and then make your own conclusion,which asks the question of why watch them anyway?
