Media is uncontrolable
The Truth is revealed
Media is controlled by “the man” to influence the people it governs. Through news, social media, and regular TV shows subliminal messages are shown to the public. Since media is often one-sided the truth is never known unless experienced first-hand. Media literacy is being able take in news from various sources and realize that it’s all biased one way or another, so that you can make an accurate assumption on what really happened. In this oppressive society it is hard to really know, but staying up to date through media is the best way to stay media literate. Social media is often the most widely used form, and although it might not be the most factual, it often gives the best understanding on how “the people” feel which is often the most important. The media is constantly evolving in today’s world, but is generally any form of expression from the general public or governments about current issues. Media includes any and every form of expression that is meant to be shared: radio broadcast, nation and local news, even music and television.
