Ive decided these blog posts will be formed in the way a ‘normal’ Relationship is formed, the first date, second, third etc, etc…. Our first date (first blog) which, come on, was awkward. I went in for the kiss, you wanted more, i ordered dessert, you didn’t, i ordered the almond tart, you’re allergic to almonds, you had an anaphylactic fit…it was just a mess… Then we move on to second date (blog post) and this is exactly that, we are well acquainted now and are ready to blog each other. In more ways than one…
My Blog question this week is “What are the media being blamed for? and is it justified?” Now, i want you to read that question back in your head in a spanish accent. Just do it. Everything’s funnier in spanish, heck, throw a ‘guacamole’ in there for fun.
So now to the question.. I believe that the media cops allot of flack. I think people use the media as a generic excuse to justify their problems…
“I’m fat because the media made me!”
“Children are becoming more violent?! IT MUST BE THE MEDIA!”
“Tracey Grimshaw said that interest rates will rise, so that means they will”
“I have a strange rash on my inner thigh, Thanks allot media…”
Ok that last one is just an issue i have.. i just need someone to blame.. Seriously i need medical attention.
Its almost like the media is the blind and deaf kid that you had in your class, that you blamed everything on because they couldn’t defend themselves. The media has feelings guys, we can’t just blame EVERYTHING on them. Its either Tony Abbots, Gina Rheinhart or the Media’s fault when there is a social issue. The Media didn’t kill Princess diana guys, calm down.
I DO however believe that the media is in fact highly influential on not only the general public, but our Youth in particular. Those little buggers are very impressionable. For example when i was 10 i saw on the news that the more chocolate you eat, the more attractive you will be. So, thats the secret to my beauty incase you were wondering… And my waistline..
Media, or as i like to call him,’Big Mezza’ (haha, sorry its a personal joke between me and him, you totally wouldn’t get it) for some people is the only way they receive information, and depending on their source, will be fed information and views created by those media superpowers. Media is just that bitchy girl that sits on the back oval at school and bosses all the other girls around, but in the end gets thrown under the bus. Basically media is Regina George.. “omg media, you Cant sit with us..”
IN the end, i think ill just have a medium double quarter pounder meal… Oh crap, sorry i was ordering dinner and writing this simultaneously. I think the media is an easy blame for most people, If we wanted to find the real answer to a question we have to look further into where the ideals were conceived… Murdoch’s mansion…
The media is needed in our world. After all, who else would we drastically overpay to sit at a news desk and read an auto cue machine all day everyday? So in conclusion, we all know who to blame in this situation…. Koshie.
