Media Use of Stereotypes We live in a world of technological innovation where mass media is a major part of us today. People make assumptions on what they hear. They do not try to analyze the situation to see who is right and who is wrong, and mass media is the main source of manipulating one's mind. The concept of propaganda has changed over time. Propagandists create ideas stereotypically through the use of propaganda and use media to promote it and target people's minds to have influence on their views towards a certain group of people.
Murdock and P. Golding criticizes the role of the mass media and popular culture for two fundamental reasons. Firstly, the mass media influences individuals’ decision to spend their leisure time and their spending, through promoting popular culture products, which are not necessary but are often enforced on individuals through advertising and manipulative content. Through these manipulative advertisements, the mass media lead individuals to unconsciously spend their money on needless goods just because they are perceived as necessary or ‘good-to-have’. Secondly, the mass media also intervenes to the knowledge production process in the society and provide manipulated information to individuals, in order to make them believe what they aim to show. The mass media, through manipulating what individuals obtain as information, also shapes their ideas, beliefs and attitudes towards social, political and economic events.
Media is considered as "mirror" of the modern society, it is the media which shapes our lives. The purpose of the media is to inform people about current, new affairs and to tell about the latest gossip and fashion. It tells about the people who are geographically divided. The role of media has become one way of trading and marketing of products and prejudices.

I tend to stray from media that has a corporate sponsor since there comes more influence.
At first, the internet may appear as a brilliant technique for those who are very drawn in, but the last part outcomes are not so good when it has undermined our experiencing the real life in numerous ways. Consequently, despite the positive effects that the internet provides to us these days, we need to recognize that we have had it way too much by letting it challenge our ability to be professionally and socially interactive in the actual world.
“Power is the ability to define reality and to have other people respond to your definition as if it were their own (Nobles).” People fail to see responsible journalism as a crisis because it is so convenient to have news media make up your mind for you. The foundation of our personal philosophies stems from irresponsible journalism through the major news sources we consume, the exposure to less responsible entertainment, and the biased reporting enforcing negative stereotypes. First, let’s delve into our first claim: The foundation of our personal philosophies stem from irresponsible journalism through the major news sources we consume. The focus here are the news sources we consume and how it is the foundation of our personal and political ideologies.

Also, she points out that news industries struggle to increase their profits. Technology advancement causes online stories to spread out and people overlook those fake facts without doubting. In order to solve this problem, online news must tell the truth (Humprecht and Frank 16), news industries need plans to maintain their position as news providers (Viner) and people need the skill to find which articles are true. I have chosen this topic because this is my area of interest. Journalism has changed its shape to assimilate with the digital world.
It is important also to divide and explain framing concepts which can be specified as media frames and individual frames.

Similarly, Entman (1991) argue about individual frames emphasizing those as “information processing schemata” of individuals and media frames as “attributes of the news itself” (Gitlin 1980, Entman 1991, quoted by Scheufele 1999:10... ... middle of paper ... ...nformation they select to avoid making unnecessary stereotypes or wrong perception. It is also relevant to mention Stephen D. Reese studies, which are related with media effects and press performances.
