Mass Media Have Both Harmful and Beneficial Effects

 Q:        
Mass Media Have Both Harmful and Beneficial Effects by Herminne Tonita -

The empire of mass media has conquered almost all territories: maybe there are a few countries left in Africa that don't know about TV or newspapers, but the number of people who don't consider mass media to be one of the things they can't live without is quite insignificant.

Having such an influence on our lives, it has both harmful and beneficial effects. Beneficial because it provides us all the information we need from all over the world, it entertains us and at the same time it helps us find more about a topic we are interested in.

On the other hand, TV and the Internet destroy communication between the members of the family and make them behave like teenagers.

There is also the case of the famous "paparazzi" who make the lives of the VIPs a living hel l, who don't care about the right to privacy and do whatever it takes to find out spicy details about singers or actors.

Furthermore, today mass media have become a form of manipulation of the population and this affects the society's capacity to make a decision on its own.

On the contrary there are times when newspapers help their readers as they become forms of protest on a certain subject. If you want the president of the country to find out you are not pleased with the government's results you write a letter to the national newspaper and they publish it. This way, you know for sure the president will find out about it while having breakfast, as everybody reads the newspaper in the morning, including the president.

The Internet helps you connect with even the farthest places of the planet, it helps you with detailed and varied information, but it also makes you "addicted" to the computer all day long.

In conclusion, like any other thing in our lives, mass media have both positive and negative aspects, but the essential ones are those positive, so don't hesitate and read more or be interested in keeping in touch with everything that is new.
