    The documentary “Manufacturing Consent” outlines what the media chooses to display to the public as well as how it chooses to present this information in a way that has a targeted effect on the public. This fact alone has truly furthered my understanding as to how influential media is on everyday society, and has also enlightened me as to who funds these carefully structured messages thus allowing me to identify precisely who is attempting to sway my opinions. Chomsky effectively conveyed that…

    This week in class we focused in depth on whistleblowers. U.S. civic activist Ralph Nader coined the phrase in the early 1970s to avoid negative connotations found with other words such as “snitch”.

    In the “Fighting for Our Lives” article, I found the statement about the “boy who cried wolf” effect in our societal dialogue interesting.

And that Julius Caesar actually banned apples because he thought they were making his people sick? Or, would it surprise you to learn that none of those "facts" are true?

    When the news comes on, doesn’t it seem there is always something off about the story? It is either the news anchor is not giving all of the information or is speculating about the event. The world of television and modern media has become a tool of de-evolution, propaganda and social control. The news was made for the viewer to be informed about their community and their nation. What happened if instead the news informed the viewer but they fill up their airtime with irrelevant information?…
