What do the desicions in the poll mean? You should put Negative or Positive influence instead of Yes or No.

Media influences different people in different ways, both good and bad. But, to say whether it's more negative or positive, we'd first have to define whats negative and whats positive.

And even then it would be in our personal point of view. (whch reminds me, I just hate it when people say point of views... it's POINTS of view! POINTS!)

I guess it's both, but [[in my personal point of view. hah.]] it's probably more negative than positive. I mean, that's where everyone gets the ides that they have to look like a toothpick, right? Of course, there's more, but I just think that's really bad. I mean, of course you need to be in shape, and being fat isn't healthy. But looking like a lot of the popular celebrities now is just very unhealthy. Seriously...

bleh. I would find some more pictures, but I'm too lazy. Anyway, you get the picture. If you really wanted to find more pictures, you could. Oh, and by the way, it's not that I have anything against Nicole. Hah. That's just the first picture I found. XD

Yeah, and the kids who are the age you were when you watched MTV as a little kid will say that same thing. I'm sure your parents say that about their MTV.

Yeah that is a good point. The media can be good or bad, but mostly bad. Yet people sometimes use the media to try to make a more positive influence for people.

I love how you talk about how much you hate how other people care. The media is very intrusive, prints the worst shots possible. Oh no. The worst that can happen is YOU people even bother to notice. I don't even know who that actress is in that atractive bikini outfit...

The only thing that will come out of the prints for the actors is that they might change to improve their image, if they even know about the publicity shots. Their career isn't over unless they actually did something to provoke their image... Tom Cruise... Paramount finnally fired that idiot.

I still find it hypocritical to say "screw the media" when in reality most of the things we know root from it.

As long as they get some publicity it seems good to them.

I didn't realize how much I hated the media until I spent 3 weeks in the middle of nowhere without television or computers or even a newspaper. It was awesome. People should learn to think for themselves.

Maybe to them it's a revolution to say that "Media is bad. Period." But they're right, because media is bad...but not bad all the time.
