    why is the media lying to us?

    the media tells us what we wanna hear. why is that. about sex, life, drugs, money, love, etc. the media gives us the psitives not the negatives. do you agree or disagree.

    Re: why is the media lying to us?

    i disagree because if it wasn't for the media things wouldn't be as bad
    i mean they make sex, drug, killing people cool which is idiotic don't blame
    the media in general but they could do better with what the show on TV
    they hardly doing anything positive anymore.

    if it bad its in and everyone thinks its right that's just screwed thinking
    people need to open there eye's because the media will never tell
    the truth about anything and the little truth they do tell is for there own
    benefit

    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
    They're one in the same, I must isolate you...

    The FCC controls almost all the media content that is broadcasted everyday to the American audience. The media sometimes may be telling the truth or may be telling a lie. As long as they get money they don't care wheter what they are broadcasting is either real or fake.

    Mmm.....I'd say I'd have to disagree that the media gives us the positives, not the negatives.

    Newspapers, and news broadcasts rely upon the negatives in order to keep readers/viewers. Turn on almost any news channel, and chances are they will overinflate a situation to make it sound like the end of the world. To coincide with the global warming thread going, look at how it's portrayed in the media. Depending on what newspaper you read, they write it in such a way as to make it sound like doomsday is one can of hairspray away.

    Newspapers need attention grabbing headlines, or else why would anyone read it? Like...if you saw a newspaper with big bold letters on the frontpage saying "Everthing is a-okay!" would you pick it up? Chances are, most people wouldn't. Instead, the headline will be the most attention grabbing thing of the day, which will generally be something negative in essence (car crash claims victims....murderer on the loose....avian flu..global warming...)

    Many Thanks To SasuraiHell For The Sig!

    The media tells us wat occurs while at times twisting the truth n manipulating 2 a point where those gullible 1s will believe anything said without any proof.it has happened at times when they r desperate for the more viewers on that certain program.

    if the media were truthfull then the war in Iraq would not be so controversial. the media refuses to show all the good we've done over there because they think we want to see bloodshed and mayhem at the expense of our soldiers.

    thanks to zyta for the sick sig and avy!
