Criticizing the news has become increasingly popular recently due to the fact that the media has shifted from a positive to a negative view in the public's eyes. Since every newscast and newspaper is different, the stories that they broadcast to the public may be altered in one way or another. As the quote above illustrates, the news media do not always illustrate the world in the right perspective and can hinder the way people look at it. It seems as though it is the job of the news to report only on negative aspects of the world. Hardly ever does one see anything positive being reported.
These networks are able to pick and choose the information in which they make available to the public and spin the stories to form a bias of the people. Many times this is done without viewers knowledge as they do not have time to check other news sources to back the information up. News broadcasts benefit the public in that they are able to relay information and make it easily available to the public. These stories are then able to help combat corruption, as viewers are then able to use their voices to take action. However some news outlets misinform people by giving out wrong information, as well as twisting the facts to create a biased viewer.
It appears that he could have murdered her in a few sections. In the poem she laments that that he was sorrowful and down on his luck (“Wife’s” 1). For this reason, it is plausible that he decided to take out his bad fortune on his wife by killing her. It is unclear why he would choose to kill her, regardless she speaks as one who has been betrayed. She states openly that he was embroiled and considering murder (“Wife’s” 1).
News is often described as the ‘window of the world’, but sometimes what we see on the news isn’t necessarily the true facts of what is happening around the world. News is often very subjective, especially in television, and sometimes the best pictures are picked over the best story. As journalists, we are responsible for society and frequently news leads viewers to a narrow-minded view of the world, often showing them what we want them to see rather than what they need to see. As Harcup explains (2009, P3) ‘Journalism informs society about itself and makes public that which would otherwise be private.’ News is extremely subjective, especially when determining what order a news bulletin should go in and what stories to pick. Often news falls into one or more categories (Harcup, 2009, P43), which are based on what will interest a particular audience.
With this knowledge, the audience is more likely to relate with Mrs. Wright from Trifles, even though she did murder her husband. Though all three pieces of literature deal with death, Trifles and ―The Story of an Hour‖ are the ones that deal with the perspective of the wives. Both the wives are similar in the way that they feel trapped by th... ... middle of paper ... ... to a realization that they have a choice of how they can live. The characters have the choice of living in misery, with a loss of who they are, or of doing something about it. In all the works, the characters do something about that misery they feel.
The media is responsible for conveying opinions through their reports, which does not allow the individual to analyze a situation to form their own opinions; therefore they are detrimental to the American society. Many news sources include their opinions through a simple technique of fabricating stories. Most news stories are created on the side to fill up time, and that increases the chance to produce a hyperbolic report. Mrs. Sherman and Mr.Peabody lucidly explain a secret supply and demand problem in the media. There is an enormous demand for up to date news, but a scarce supply of current news; and to fill this gap, the media creates news.
Television news jobs are tougher to get and more challenging for persons who do get them than ever before in today’s quickly changing media environment. These anxieties can lead to letdown and bitterness. Journalists assess their actions on professional and personal standards. They desire to make their news... ... middle of paper ... ...wars or finish them, to arouse the heart or sadden the soul, to provide hope or demolish it. The power journalists and editors hold is unbelievable—so much so that people are constantly attempting to steal it from us or limit it.
It lacks the background information needed to better educate the reader making an opinion. The entertainment industry has taken over control of some publications in order to influence readers and turn a profit. The reader’s opinion becomes swayed by the impact of these tendencies, as well as the writer’s own opinion of the situation stated in his/her report. One example of the fallacies in today’s news is the lack of background information given on the subject. Very little background information is recorded, which in turn does not inform the reader enough to make an educated opinion.
When her mother asked her why she didn't use her name anymore Wangero answered: "She's dead, I couldn't bear it any longer being named after the people who oppress me." (68) `She' died in the same fire that burned down the house I suppose. So, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Dee was reborn as Wangero. However, the night of the fire a flame of conflict was born for her mother. The conflict of Maggie, the younger sister, vs. Wangero flamed into a choice between a wish and reality.
The two women in the play have been picking up one the little house clue the men in the play would find in significant, because they think all the women are really talking about is trifles, but in reality they are talking about how Mrs. Wright killed her husband. Overall Mrs. Wright killed her husband because he caused her isolation, emotional abuse, and he killed the only think she actually cared about and she lost hope which ultimately all of these led to her self destruction because of the neglection of her
