The media is not the catalyst for the violence in American society.
But it’s hard to deny that television’s photogenic reporters are far Quicker to report a violent story than an act of decency.
The growing violence in America is directly linked to the media. Media is clearly a societal flaw that is responsible for the escalating violence.
However, the media often is overzealous in showing the seamy side of life without consideration for age Americans.
It’s this constant bombardment of pictures of illegal and immoral acts that causes many Americans to believe that violence is an answer to their problems. After all, isn’t everybody doing it?
News reporters have created a situation in which, whether or not they condone violence, clearly they are feeding off of it. So they appear to be hypocrites when they claim to hate the violence the broadcast. They protest the very evil they pipe into millions of homes daily.
It would be naive to believe that if the media suddenly ceased showing crime and violence, criminals would voluntarily put down their guns and happily clean highways and care for orphaned children.
Still, the media is responsible for fueling the increasing violence in America. Consequently, it must do its part to end it.
