How do the media influence people's behavior and perception of the world?
When you look at a magazine, what catches your attention the most? Is it the juicy gossip which tells you if a certain celebrity broke up with another? Or is it the beautiful models which grace every single page of the magazine? What music is the best? What is in fashion? A place we might like to visit for vacation. Where should we go out with our friends? What movie to go watch. We all get some sort of influence from the media. It shapes our opinions, but it can be for the worse as well.
