Does the media have too much influence when it comes to conflicts?
the iraq war started because we believed the media, iran is feared because of the media and now lybia is being bombed because the media reports that lybians don't want their current leader. are we being conned or do you think the media is telling the truth?
I view the media as a independent author. They write and say what they want to cause........ It's like reading a book that they have published. Just like any television show they ProDuce whatever they want to. In regards to if they are telling the truth who on hubpages would know or have first hand information to that?!?!?! Come on, this world is full of a whole bunch of authors, producers and intellectuals

I don't think the news media has all the facts or either enough facts to report news as it happens. The competition to be the first to report breaking news cause that report to be mis or dis information often.
Social media is quietly and quickly lessening the exclusiveness of the role of the press. Reporters now have to compete with normal people (active participants or just bystanders) on the scene. People who are armed with handy cameras and the ability to make uploads to Facebook, Twitter and Youtube on a computer.

Has the National Rifle Association gained too much power and influence in America?Is it time to force the NRA to step out of the business of dictating our laws in ways that allow mass shootings? If no one pulls out the gun that they are allowed to carry and defends a crowd, then what good is the...

Politics in itself is good. It was basically created to give meaningful directions to an otherwise chaotic and multi-dimensional problems of our society. The politicians are the ones that make it look trashy and confusing to a majority of the people. Too much scandals/corruptions and too much...
