I think the media has impacted our culture in many obvious ways. For example our music, movies, and propaganda. The media is something that always has something, whether it’s something you want to learn about, know about, or don’t even care about.
I think the first way that media affects our culture is through the music people listen to. From experience, and education, it is easy to see how music is changing people. How it changes their personality, thinking, and beliefs. Although, the part that most people think is not okay, is the way some artists objectify women. It has sparked a lot of controversy around the world, and caused a lot of trouble. I think it would be better if some artists only sung about, peace, criticizing the government, love, and life. I think rapping/singing about how much money you have, how hard you party, of how much women you have, only causes jealousy, and can shape the way other people choose to live.
I think the way media portrays gender has its positives and negatives. The positive part is that, women are allowed to sing songs about women’s rights, go on TV and talk about stuff affecting women and so much more. The negative part is that, many rappers objectify women in their music.
I think media impacts the economy the most, because it is how the government and businesses are able to express propaganda and advertisements. Using media, businesses are able to trick people into buying their products, especially banks. The government, through media can express propaganda to a state or country.
Media has shaped me into the person I am right now. Media has changed the way I think, the way I behave, my attitude towards things and people. So to me, media has impacted me in only positive ways so far, and I hope it doesn’t change me into a different type of person, although I know it will, eventually.
