課題：What roles does mass media have in influencing the public opinion?
I feel mass media plays an important role in influencing the public opinion. I will explain.
Firstly, public opinion is easily influenced by mass media on the internet. These days there are extreme and racist opinions posted on social networking sites(SNSs), which creates an atmosphere of racial tension and intolerance. As a result, people mistrust and fear one another. Some of them even conducted violent actions due to such harmful ideas.
Secondly, mass media often sensationalize the news regarding public figures. For example when famous people make trivial mistakes, mess media always attacks them, which makes people feel most of them are bad role models. Celebrities are easily portrayed as perfect, leading lifestyles that ordinary people can only dream of. The fact that famous people are also vulnerable and make mistakes like everyone else is often overlooked.
In conclusion, I feel that mass media plays an important role in influencing the public opinion.
(In conclusion, I believe mass media provides people with large amounts of information and amusement, but it also make false and exaggerated news to pique the interest of the public. Hence we should improve our ability to distinguish between the authentic and inauthentic news provided by the mass media. )
