Mass Media has a stronger influence on the world than we would think. Whether we want to believe or not, media impacts the way our personal ideologies are shaped. It is a factor on the decisions we make in many areas. Whether the influencing is positive or negative it is for the individual to decide. We must take it in our hands to discern what is right or wrong and hold strong to it. Media is powerful enough to manipulate many minds and hide the truth. We must stay strong to our opinions, and not let them be manipulated.
