  • Media influence
    "In psychology, communication theory and sociology, media influence or media effects refers to the theories about the ways the mass media
    affect how their audiences think and behave.
    ..
    Critics of the media effects theory point out that many copycat murders, suicides and other violent acts nearly always happen in abnormal upbringings. They were raised in a violent, emotionally neglected or aggressive environment which influenced their behavior more rather than watching certain programs, films or listening to certain music. Most people who carry out these acts are also mentally unstable to begin with.
    Critics also point out that just because an audience sees acts of violence on TV, etc, this does not mean they will actually do it themselves.
    Of the millions of people who watch violent films, only a small number have carried out acts of violence as a direct result..."

    "In the fascinating scenario explored in this story, newsmasters will be the key news directors and producers of the future.
    They will be able to connect, filter and prioritize information for every media-consumer on the planet,
    using a single source of media content that contains everything that anyone could possibly ever want to know about.
    That single source is called EPIC: The 'Evolving Personalized Information Construct'."

Front pages and Headlines :

  • 7 Types of Headline Headaches
    "Throughout the history of journalism, headlines have evolved as a method for distilling the content of an article into a handful of words that will draw readers into the piece, and they serve that function for other types of informative content such as newsletters and reports. However, in publications that are not carefully edited, especially on post-it-right-now websites, headlines can invite the wrong kind of curiosity, combined with confusion or derision, when they’re published with errors. This post examines various types of common mistakes."
