We are all socially conditioned in some way, shape or form just by absorbing the exterior influences around us.
Friends, family, schools etc. seem to have a bias that would favor our well being.
The media, however, has its’ own agenda. I believe, for the most part, to keep fueling our capitalistic greed. This has quite an impact on our society that should be addressed because it creates a warped sence of perception of the world around us.
Politically speaking, I can’t help but notice that when it comes to our Federal election (Canadian), that the media has already weeded out potential candidates as possible future leaders by simply ignoring them.
Independants as well as leaders of smaller parties get zero media coverage as potential future Prime Ministers. The media has already decided for us that we only need to be concerned with a select 3 or 4 candidates. Hardly democratic.
ALL potential PM’s should have equal media coverage. Coverage equals exposure. Exposure=winning.
