My topic is how the Media influences society. The media is a powerful industry in todays society. The media pretty much controls how people react to big news that happens in the world. If an event is reported on with a negative connotation then society will think negatively of the event or vice versa. When one industry has this much control it becomes extremely dangerous.

Instead of reporting on an event with an opinion behind it, the media should be objective and unbiased. They should be responsible for giving facts instead of opinions. Let the public decide how to react on their own. This simple change in the media will remove most of their power over society.
