They inform, educate and entertain people. They also influence the way people kick at the world and make them change their views. Mass media mould public opinion. Millions of people in their spare time watch TV and read newspapers. All information is controlled by politicians. Graham Greene, English writer says in his article that they have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. For example, European media bend the truth, dramatist an eventualities has declared war on Ukraine. In fact, it is not true. Ukrainian troops are fighting with their people.
It means that Mass media gives such information and people believe in it. 2. “Good news isn’t news. Bad news is news. ” (Henry Lucie, founder of the magazine “Time”) [(a) provide a number of factors that constitute news value; (b) illustrate them by examples of news events covered in various mass media; (c) state which of the criteria of newsworthiness seem to be of primary importance to you. ] Roger IA number of factors that constitute news value: Impact. The greater the consequence, and the larger the number of people for whom an event is important the greater the newsworthiness. Timeliness . An event may have occurred in the past but only have been learned about gently. -Proximity: Closeness of the occurrence to the audience (Information is understandable to some audience) – The Bizarre. (The unusual or unexpected attracts attention. Controversy and open clashes , Currency, Human Interest. The best way to illustrate these factors is to talk about current events. The conflict in Ukraine is shown from different sights in different countries. In Russia the mass media says that its all the fault of Ukraine and the USA. UT in those countries it is the other way round. The most important factors for me are impact, timeliness, conflict and currency. I read news to understand what is happening in our country and what actions are done towards it. Want to get a good idea of current events, it’s not interesting for me what dress has some celebrity brought to herself. Henry Lexis’s statement is not very clear to me. So I can only add that any news is news. Indistinguishableness. 3. “We are the best entertained, least informed society in the world. (Neil Postman, author of the book “Amusing Ourselves to Death”) explain the etymology of the words “tabloid” and “broadsheet”; (b) compare “qualities” and “popular” according to their intent, presentation, targeted audience, ownership or political orientation; (c) provide examples of quality and popular newspapers and state your own preferences].

Multidimensionality the word “broadsheet”in different dictionaries have not found. )The most quality and popular newspapers in Moscow are : Metro, Sedona, Vests, Quirk v Rusk, Smokestack Pravda. Actually I don’t read newspapers, but a lot of people read Metro newspaper. To my mind it immerses oneself in the media-saturated world. Many articles cause anguish that’s why I can’t read them.

There are some advantages and disadvantages of the Internet. Advantages : Easy and cheap communication, sending small or big files with others easily, Loads of information, Entertainment, Services, Earn money. Disadvantages : Virus Threat, Theft of Personal Information, Information overload,Spamming, Pornography. Internet for me is: information and different news, communication, entertainment (music, videos) and shopping. Speaking about the statement above, we can say that it’ s true.

It has become an important part of every person’s life. 5. “Most of us appreciate that celebrity and greatness are not the same. What turns a famous person into a celebrity?

Tate :Celebrity/dignitary famous and popular people. Pennington Journalism is when paparazzi armored outlets use different methods and ways of getting to know everything about famous and popular people. Now talking about the reasons the mass media resort to sensationalism. Why do they do it? They do it because it’s theirs job and they earn the money, make advertising disabilities and they provide in-depth coverage of an event of celebrities’ life to the public.
There are also some methods which correspondents use to stalk stars : – interview, -Photostatting – fan meetings, – paparazzi get to know where the famous person would be and go for him, waiting everywhere with cameras, they don’t let him go until they get their own. Popular people fight for their private life and try to hide it. In some countries paparazzi are punished by a fine up to imprisonment if they interfere with privacy. Speaking about the statement bureaucratically celebrity and greatness, we can make a conclusion that greatness is a quality, and celebrity is a popular person. But great people may be popular and not popular.
Putting is the great and popular hero of our time. Yuri Dolorously remained the great, but today is not popular. 6. (thighs instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise, it is nothing but wires and lights in a box. ” (E. R.

Tate :Pipe watch that they are interested. TV affects a person positively or negatively, depending on what television broadcast and channel people watch. For example if I watch music channels and get a positive mood there’s no harm but if someone watches some mythical channel TAB, then begins suspecting his friends, that they are witches or wizards. Advantages of itching TV’: entertainment, different information, educational programs, cookery.
Disadvantages of watching TV : Adult scenes, psychedelic channel (like 2*2), the imitation of bad heroes, scary shows, violent acts which develop violent behavior. As for me I don’t see any harm for me because I watch and listen to music programs and good films : family, romantic and comedies. For others I can’t answer, but every person decide for himself what to watch. And talking about children, parents must control what their child watches. Speaking about statistics of American television we can say, that there are any programs about violence and murder.
It’s not surprised that in New York and other American cities there are many criminal areas. 7. Denis Derider wrote in his В«UnicycledieВ» in 1755: “As long as the centuries continue to unfold, the number Of books will grow continually, and one can predict that a time will come when it will be almost as difficult to learn anything from books as from the direct study of the whole universe. It will be almost as convenient to search for some bit of truth concealed in nature as it will be to find it hidden away in an immense multitude of bound volumes. ”

If a teacher gives to her students a large amount of unknown and unwanted material, then instead of desire and love for the subject hatred, aggression or suicide appears. It’s necessary to enter he position of the students and understand that the students have other subjects where other teachers also give overmuch homework .

Because of the different standards of proof, there was not enough evidence for a jury to decide that OZ Simpson was guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt” in the criminal murder case. In the civil trial, however, the jury found enough evidence to conclude that OZ Simpson wrongfully caused his wife’s death by a “preponderance of the evidence.
