The media always has an agenda. I'm kind of embarrassed to say that I never realized that until i took some communication classes. I was one of those people that thought the news was honest and always told the whole and true story. It still blows me away that we only read and hear what the media chooses to show us. Now that I have been aware of that face, I have really noticed when i watch or read a story and it makes me feel a certain way. Who knew it would be so hard to get the REAL news and choose they way WE feel about it.

  1. You should definitely post more in the future. You're off to a great start and thinking about important questions, but you don't really address any of them. Why does it matter whether or not the media is neutral? How does it affect our society?
