The media is precisely what it is... it's a medium.

The medium in itself is not good or bad, it's what is conveyed through it that can be judged as good or bad. If the point of discussion regards the actual influence of media, then yes, it is a very powerful form of influence. The internet is a prime example of such. Everything you see on the screen is a result of media forces that persuade you, one way or another.

You don't need to be a rocket scientist to realize that the media has a significant effect on the things you think or believe. Even if it doesn't influence you, at the very least, it provokes you and challenges your values (if you have any).

Point be told, yes... the media is a very powerful form of influence. As far as the cultural restrictions of media are concerned, I believe suppressing the media is a dangerous ingredient in the formation of a totalitarian nation. In this democratic age, a certain level of transparency is necessary, or so I believe.

Meh... I'm forgetting the point in everything I'm saying. Long story short, long live the media. May the lying bastards who exploit it rot in hell with a tiki torch up their ass.

Yes. Media has such power. It can be beneficial or detrimental depending on how it is used.

The Media affects people in a big way... for example.. if u live in a place where there's no "real" connection with the whole "developing world", you are like someone who's only main source of information is the Media.. like.. a baby who's just gradually learning through the things you see... (sorry for the scattered ideas)

What do you mean by Media affecting traditions? I mean.. as the media itself...? how...?

In my opinion, the media could be used in a good way and a bad way. It depends on the material shown. I also think everyone is influeced by it in a big way that it became a part of everyones life. I also believe its a new way of getting in touch with people throughout the world.

i couldn't agree more... and like eveything advantageous it has it's bad effects... media has affected me in several ways and has directed most of my decisions... just can't imagine my life without music, or computer or... it does a lot of stuff for people, it changes people's perspectives on stuffs, improves them and at the same time destroys them... maybe that's just how it works, when something is of use it brings with it havocs...
