Can mass media play a role in shaping your meaning of intamacy?
In my opinion, the media can definitely change your perception of intimacy, as well as alter your ability to be intimate. As the media displays false images of the human body and makes false descriptions of what humans desire sexually. There are too many subjects and issues to go on about here, but a small example of the two issues i mentioned before are in magazines the pictures of the models are airbrushed to display, what most call a "flawless" body and in movies and sitcoms the most desired people are medium height, and very slender and so on. Giving the receivers of this idea the false realization that's what you have to have to be sexually attractive. which would cause embarrassment of their own bodies or thinking some thing is wrong if they are attracted to some one that's 4 foot and heavy.Possibly leading them to involvement with someone they are not sexually attracted to and embarrassed to take their clothes off in front of. This is definitely, in my opinion, going to cause intimacy issues and is an excellent description of proof how mass media plays a role in shaping your meaning of intimacy.

Answer . This is a very difficult question to answer. The media should present an unbiased view of any war. Political leanings should be left out.\nCase in point, in Vietnam, the US won every major battle. After the Tet offensive, North Vietnam's offensive capabilities had been exhausted. The…re was talk of trying to reach a negotiated truce with the South. But several leaders said wait and see. They did this because of the view being presented by the media to the public. This led to the lack of support to continue and win the Vietnam war.\nNow I know there are many additional factors to consider, but this is one that is hard to argue. \nDuring Desert Storm the drive to Baghdad was stopped due to the fact that the Pentagon was being warned about the coverage the Highway of Death was about to receive. The sheer amount of death and carnage that would soon be aired upon the US networks actually helped to stop the drive to take Baghdad.\nThe media should present the views of both sides and allow the viewers to make their own conclusions. Problem is today you need ratings, so lets show this young soldier who was blown up or this civilian who happened to be caught in the crossfire. \nWith the situation in Iraq now, the media has been better than anticipated. The embedded reporters I think helped to show the struggles and hardships faced by troops in combat. Unless you have been there, you will never know. It is very easy to judge somebody while you are sitting in the comfort of your home. Try being in the boots of that trooper who just slammed into a door, following a grenade, with dust, smoke and debris in the air. You come thru the door and go left or right (depending upon your assignment) and see a shadow. Is that shadow trying to raise their hands to surrender? Or to aim at you? You have only milliseconds to decide and someone could easliy die.\nWhen situations happen, they need to be the facts, and only the facts. (MORE)

"When complaints are\nfreely heard, deeply considered, and speedily reformed, then is\nthe utmost bound of civil liberty attained, that wise men\nlook for."---Milton \n\n \n\n The Media holds the mirror\nto society and is the powerful channel of communication. Hence, A special duty\nis… imposed on the media; which is universally considered as fourth pillar of\nthe democracy, to not only inform the general public of various issues and\nsubjects but also at the same time to build their opinion and to reflect them\nin proper form. The freedom of media includes the right to receive and collect\ninformation of public importance from all primary and authenticated sources and\nto disseminate it through all legitimate sources. \n\n \n\n The media has gained new\ndimension, great strength and very sharp transforming the present age into\ninformation explosion. The media plays\nan extremely important role in transmitting the claims of social, economic and\npolitical movements to the decision-makers and the public. A free press and\nelectronic media is an essential attribute today of a democratic polity because\nonly these sources of information can keep not only information flowing\nfreely but also help maintain a constant dialogue between the\npolicy makers and the masses. \n\n \n\n The role of media is not just\nconfined to make information available. It is also to educate people on the key\nnational issues, which are concerned with lives of common people. Media\nconducts in-depth critiques, analyses and appraisals by discussing pros and\ncons of a given policy of government or any issue in an impartial and fair\nmanner. In the process, it brings out what is good or harmful for people. Thus\nit informs people to oppose or support a given policy. That is how media\nperforms the role of an opinion-maker. The aggregate result of such approach is\nthat the governments have to be very meticulous in the formulation of policies. \n\n \n\n Since media undertakes critical\nappraisals of policies in a threadbare manner, therefore, it performs the role\nof a national watchdog. If a government adopts a policy, which is collectively\nnot beneficial, the media can criticize this policy so severely as to arouse\npeople's opposition towards this policy. So powerful is this role of media as a\nwatchdog that the governments have to sometimes withdraw themselves from their\nstated positions. Therefore this role of media as a protector of public rights\nis very important for fair and beneficial policy formulation. \n\n \n\n This role of media as a\nrepresentative of masses emerges from the above-mentioned role as a national\nwatchdog. Through a number of methods and techniques like the columns,\ninterviews, seminars and public forums etc, the media serves to convey the\naspirations of people to the top policy makers who may otherwise not know them\nby other available channels. \n\n Media is also a unifier of\ndiverse viewpoints. At a time when a national policy may not be in accordance\nwith popular appeal but it is in the larger interest of the country, it does\neducate the populace about the benefits accruing from adoption of such and such\npolicy for the country. Such situations often arise on issues of diplomacy and\nforeign policy where policy has to be worked out keeping in view country's\nstrengths and weaknesses not emotionally. Media has played vital role in educating the peoples and make them\naware of almost everything related to their self, their nation and country. . (MORE)

Kennedy, however, did wear the make-up and so appeared cooler and more composed than Nixon. Kennedy, before the debate, returned tan and attractive from vacation. Not only did Kennedy appear to be better groomed, and handsome, his suit was navy popping off the grey back drop. Nixon's suit was grey, blending in to the curtain behind him. With these factors combined, Among TV viewers agreed, Kennedy won the debate. Richard Nixon's deep, strong, radio appealing voice won over all radio listeners, they agreed Nixon won the debate.

Media's role important in shaping public opinion Important medium: The media has been used by the public to express their concerns and grievances in hope that the relevant agencies will respond to them. Picture: Zamri Zainal. YAZDI YAHYA BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN. Monday, December 10, 2007. IN… A WORLD where information increasingly plays a primary role in all aspects of a country's development, the media print and electronic plays an important role in disseminating such information. The responsibility mentioned refers to the importance of delivering to the public correct, precise and constructive information, which will give the public both sides of the story. In a report published in The Brunei Times, Permanent Secretary at the Prime Minister's Office, Dato Paduka Hj Mustappa Hj Sirat was quoted as saying, "This is the reality of an increasingly globalised world where the media exists to shape one's opinion," referring to the increasing number of public complaints towards the efficiency of the civil service. He added, "Under any conditions, we have to accept this as a positive matter and as a healthy debate in order to improve the standards and the value of services that we provide. It is hoped that those who provide the services and those who are on the receiving end reach an understanding in this manner." Some residents in Brunei agreed that in recent years, the media has been used as an avenue to express concerns and grievances on public issues in hope that the relevant agencies, not only governmental but non-governmental and the private sector as well, will respond to such complaints. Business owner Laila Asmad, when interviewed, was in the opinion that the role of the media is becoming increasingly important. "In my opinion, both the public and private sector are more concerned of what people think and because of this more attention has been paid to the media," she said. Private sector employee, Hj Rushdi Sumin said with far more ease to internet access, people can easily publish their thoughts through online forums, which is also a good avenue for expressing public concerns. "With the internet, people can speak more freely because they can remain anonymous. Even amongst the younger generation, blogs are becoming more popular and they use this to express themselves." Mohammad Razali Hashim, when asked, feels that complaints made through the media is far more effective even though the response time is still slow. "Although slow, but at least these agencies respond to the problem instead of ignoring these complaints." However, a government servant , who spoke on condition of anonymity, felt the although complaints are good in shaping a better civil service, referring to Dato Paduka Hj Mustappa's comment. He said, "Measures must be taken to regulate and control all forms of media and ensure that all comments made are constructive and useful to improving all services, and not only within the civil service."

'The connection between the break-in and the re-election campaign committee was highlighted by media coverage. In particular, investigative coverage by Time , The New York Times , and especially The Washington Post , fueled focus on the event. The coverage dramatically increased publicity and cons…equent political repercussions. Relying heavily upon anonymous sources, Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncovered information suggesting that knowledge of the break-in, and attempts to cover it up, led deep into the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and even the White House. Chief among the Post's anonymous sources was an individual they had nicknamed Deep Throat (who was later revealed in 2005 to be former Deputy Director of the FBI William Mark Felt, Sr.) It was the informant 'Deep Throat' who met secretly with Woodward, and told him of Howard Hunt's involvement with the Watergate break-in, and that the rest of the White House staff regarded the stake in Watergate extremely high. 'Deep Throat' also warned Woodward that the FBI wanted to know where he and the other reporters were getting the information which was uncovering even a wider web of crimes than first disclosed. In one of their last meetings, all of which took place at an underground parking garage somewhere in Washington DC at 2:00 AM, Deep Throat cautioned Woodward that he might be followed and not to trust their phone conversations.' Conclusion: The media played a massive role in almost impeaching one of the most powerful men in the World and most certainly the roles played by 'Post' reporters Woodward and Bernstein were instrumental in forcing President Nixon to resign...

With the way social media is steamrolling traditional media I'd say it's the main character. Instant updates with real time, actual human interaction. A company can now see their demographic's wants and needs. With social media, a human interest story involving a major corporation can go viral in an… instant. The hems and haws of an entire contingent can be heard and responded to en masse. While the adulation of the same contingent can be spread throughout all the world at the click of a mouse.

Media intensifies the government's ability to spread propoganda, which is the most efficient way to get into the minds of citizens. A good example of the media's influence in a hypothetical situation is the book "1984" by George Orwell.
"Was" (war's been over for almost 40 years). The role of the "mass" media during the war was to bring it (visual/sound) to the public.
The media can typically boost morale, but mostly encourage men and women to work to help the cause, namely "victory gardens". This provides food, guns, tanks, planes, and everything needed in warfare. The more people the faster it gets made.
Though before the advent of the mass media, communication already existed only within a limited confine. By the dawn of the 19th century, the mass media began to emerge, the face of communication art of passing or disseminating information to a large audience. This goes to say that mass communicatio…n makes communicating with a large number people simultaneously possible. The mass media have exerted enormous power and influence on the people that mass media have become part of their every day life. Some people prefer to listen to radio, watch television or read newspapers, magazines before laying their hands on anything. Imagine how you will fill when you wake up one morning, tune the radio or television or search for a newspaper, but could not get hold of any. How would you know the happenings within, outside and inside your environment without the media? Would you have heard of Obama without the media? How would you know about the policies or programmes of the government of the day without the media or how would have government been relevant to the people without the media? Thomas Jeferson once said, "I will prefer to run the media without the government than to run the government without the media". Mass media are those channels or ways through which information are disseminated to a large, heterogeneous, scattered and amorphous audience who receive the message simultaneously. mass media are classified into two parts, print media, which includes; book, newspaper, magazine and electronic or broadcast media which comprise of film, radio, television and internet. As an element of increasing importance in the political life of every civil society, especially with the increasing democratization of nation's policy, there is multiplicity of linkage between the mass media, the society and its politics, their activities and influence taking from the pre and post world war period to this present era ofcommunication technology explosion, the mass media have proven to be veritable instruments for political mobilization. The media now are creating awareness both for immediate environment and outside the world. It is worthy to note that the mass media do not only create awareness as well as serving as a means for expression of ideas but they are social force to be reckoned with and a vehicle for mobilization. However, the mass media play a watch dog role in any society to keep surveillance on the government. Infact, it is major tool since the mass media work for good relation between the rulers and the ruled. The media perform this effective role in a democratic era, for instance, the mass media in 2003 election performed this role starting from the operations, agitations against malpractices in the election by the masses and other political candidates were as a result of information received by the media. Through this, they get knowledge of the happening in the national assemblies. Different bills pertaining to the election are reported to police, the parliamentary reports also take feedback to the government to affect changes or correction when ever it is necessary. Nevertheless, no matter how laudable a government considers its policies to be, the relevance of its activities need to be mobilized, gingered up for the achievement of national or societal aims and goals, and this can hardly take place without the mass media. It therefore suffices to say that the mass media have a special role to play in gender issues and also in promoting or encouraging political participation. The mass media are not only to cover the campaigns and provide unbiased information to the public but they have been assigned the job of interpreting the campaigns and living the political choices at state. The media also promote gender equality among women. They do this through media programmes, organizing seminars and conferences such as, "Today's women and women in focus. The media do this with the purpose of showcasing the women and showing them a sense of belonging in the society. The Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), for instance, presents women discuss their problems in the society and proffer solution to those problems. The media are equally alarmed and tend to moblize the people against the activities of the self appointed "God fathers" and their estranged political "godsons". The guardian of April 3, 2005, 8-9, showcased the discordant tunes in the policy especially of the Eastern states. Precisely, between Governor Mbadinuju of Anambra State and one Emeka Offor and that of Governor Chimaroke Nnamani of Enugu State and Jim Nwobodo. The press indeed had been prophetic in their political sensitization role in informing the people before hand, of the likely show of shame of such unwholesome political union would lead to. Mass Media perform agenda-setting function, which focus on the idea that people desire media assistance in determining political reality. But not only focusing attention on certain issues but by placing much emphasis on them at the expense of others, the people come to know what to talk and think about. (MORE)
