I don't believe that media is responsible for creating the violence, the world is filled with violence that the media doesn't report. What I believe is that the media makes violence almost acceptable or normal.
No, we are quite capable of doing it ourselves. To blame the media is just us engaging in our favourite pastime of finding someone to blame when we fail to control ourselves - 'look what you made me do.'
Unfortunately, we are a violent society. That being said, the media can provide unnecessary examples of violence and mayhem. Violence perpetuates violence.
They play a great part in it.What you see on tv is copyed by so many people ....even children.Ideas come from all sides.
Media present ideas,and they don't exactly have clean hands.
No the media is not responsible for creating violence but they certainly help propagate it. Think about it, after Columbine how many school shootings were there? After the beheading of Daniel Pearle how many more journalist did AQ behead? Why are there so many copy cat crimes after a much publicized incident? Because people want attention and to get on TV.
I think if the media weren't so prevalent things like columbine would be an isolated event and not a national phenomenon
they are not responsible for creating it, but their woeful LACK of TRUTH in their reporting probably instigates some people TO violence!!
