Propaganda is everywhere and has been around for a long time. Every newspaper, magazine, news channel, radio station, advertisement, or any other types of mass media contain elements of propaganda. Propaganda is often given a negative connotation due to its history of power and control; as in the Hitler’s regime, but in reality the definition is very simple....   [tags: Journalism Reporting]

Media And Environment : Conflict, Politics, And The News, Libby Lester

- ... An insight I gained from the book is that news media has great control in that it is instrumental in shaping the publics’ understandings and meanings on environmental issues. Without media exposure, the general population would be left in the dark about the current state of affairs in our ecosystem. As Lester argues in her book, media outlets are ‘players’ in an ‘arena’ that negotiate access with sources, shape meanings, circulate symbols, push for actions, and contest decisions (p.5). Under these circumstances, I can understand that there is a lot at stake for those lucky ‘players’ to take part in the news or “arena.” I believe that those who gain exposure in the arena and consistently...   [tags: Mass media, News media, Journalism]
