You’ll Only Listen to What I Tell You and You’ll Like It

 The media has complete control over a story, how much air time it should get, if that is any at all. The media decides whether something is newsworthy, even if that story is just a genocide. I understand priorities, I know it all and the problem in Darfur today is out-of-reach for most Americans. But think about it: why is it out of reach? The news networks and mainstream media decided to make it that way. Nobody can deny the power that the media holds when it comes to telling us what to talk about.

 But let’s not give the media all the credit.

Human Element: authority. Share your thoughts.
