Whoever controls the media also controls opinions and attitudes of the people and there is little that can be done to rectify this.
There is an opinion that the mass media have a significant influence on people’s viewpoint and it is unlikely that this situation can be
changed
. I disagree with this statement.
Currently
, this issue is crucial
because
at all times, the media have had a great impact on the mass consciousness. In 21st century there are
a lot of
types of mass media that people face every day. In my essay
i
will present my
own
viewpoint on this problem.

Controlling people’s opinion
is complicated
thing. To
begin
with, there are
a lot of
various new sources. People can
get
the
information
from
different
authors, analyze it and
make
their
own
view. Second, the people’s trust is decreasing.
For example
, according to the American recent survey, a large amount of people view mass media
negatively
(about 43%) than
positively
(33%). It happens due to the fact that journalists
often
lie. They resort to unfair methods of drawing attention to their source.

On the contrary
, those who disagree with my opinion believe that mass media controls people’s attitudes to various aspects of life. It is partly true.
First
, there are vulnerable people such as children,
old
people, mentally ill people who can trust any
information
that they
see
. The media takes an advantage of such people. It is easy to control them.

As for me, I tend to believe that
despite of
the fact mass media play
an
vital role in everyday life it cannot
absolutely
control people’s views.
However
, special part of people can
be controlled
.
So
that’s why the
government
must
monitor all mass media and censor indecent information.

To conclude
, I assume I have managed to convince you that mass media isn’t the source of
totally
true. People can
wisely
analyze
information
and
make
their
own
attitudes. My viewpoint
is supported
by my arguments.
