Comment on the following statement:
|Mass media influences teenagers’ minds. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
In my opinion mass media has a major impact on young minds. First of all, television, radio and other media sources present information in a particular way. For example, there is always a statement and then a few examples. It is an effective way of giving any information and teenagers' minds believe it, even if it is wrong and false. Secondly, mass media has other tools such as video interviews. For instance, they ask particular people about their opinion, sometimes manipulating by choosing certain interviewees.
At the same time there are people who claim that young people just watch TV, YouTube or TikTok channels and keep their own opinion about different situations around. Nowadays teens are clever enough to see the truth.
I do not agree with the statement mentioned above. Everybody can get under the influence of mess media because people consider it an authority. Everything that authorized channels broadcast looks logical and obvious to teenagers, who often do not have enough experience and might mistakenly take their opinion as the truth.
In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight mess media does not change teen’s consciousness, but in actual fact it does it. Thus, I strongly believe that mess media influences teenagers’ minds.
