Step 1
1&2: Newspaper - Gives people the news every morning in a readable form
TV - people can listen to whats going on currently when they want on tv
Radio - tells people whats going on by talking to a group (can share important information when needed)
Billboard, Poster - Tell people whats going on at a quick glance when they are walking by
Internet - People can check the news when they want and has the most chance to get false information
Cell Phone - Gives people information on the go
Speech - Telling someone directly through talking to them

3: The media is influenced by social factors because people want things to talk about and things theyu will talk about. Also, the media is influenced by econmic factors because people want to hear the good stuff and it might not always be the truth. Lastly, the media is affected by poloitical factors because the government can somewhat control what the media says. I think the media is also influenced by the people who run the certain media.

4: I'm sure the people who are not represented are very angry and egar to tell the truth. While the people portraying are probably happy they got people t see what they wanted to see.

Step 2
1: The Americans are portrayed to the Americans as doing good and wanted in Iraq. However, to the rest of the world Americans are shown as not wanted and not doing good.
3: Both the video and the pictures portray the event from both sides. What the Americans showed the world and what it was actually was. The major difference is that the video shows what really happened and the pictures showed how the media exaggerated the situation.
4:The main choices that were made were who to please with the pictures and video. Overall the media chose the Americans.
5: This information made me understand that maybe we didn't do as mach good as we thought in Iraq.
6: The media made the choice of capturing the event to please only certain people. They chose to show all of the Iraqis happy the Americans were there and happy the saute was gone.The intentions I believe were to make Americans happy.
7: They were doctored to make the rest of the world believe that the Iraqis were self supported.
8: It served the purpose of showing the Americans the Progress the military was making.
9: The Americans benefit from the doctored images because it keeps them feeling good about the war and their choice to send troops to Iraq.
10: Yes I think can change history because it can become a symbolic image just like men raising the flag on Iwa Jima and it can become all people remember and what they think about the event.

Step 3
1:The images and the font in the American paper are bigger and the article all portray the Americans has good. I can't read the other articles but I'm sure they don't say the same things about the Americans and the Thailand paper has things beside the war on the front page. I wonder if the Americans are making to big of deal out of the situation?????
2:The audience of the paper are the people of Tuscan, everyone who lives in Thailand, and anyone else interested in the war.

I now can sincerly believe that the media tells lies. The media is always biased. They only show what they want you to see or what you want to see. There are countless examples.

The media has effected the way events are recorded immensely. The media for one makes changes things to help people see what they want to see. With the Iraqi war the media obviously changed the story for the Americans to see, a great propaganda technical . Why would you do something like that? Could you imagine how many people would be portrayed negatively. The media constantly making the Government seem worse or better then they really are. When the Government killed Osama Bin Laden the media made it seem like it was a great thing and now everything was going to change for the better. They were right to some degree that it probably was a good thing, but they greatly exaggerated the situation in my opinion. The media definitely twists and alters history. With the Iraqi war it will most likely be remembered has the time when America saved the Iraqis. After Reading about the war I'm not so sure that's what happened. It makes me wonder what events I hear about are actually true. That is why now I'm absolutely being careful and listening to what the media says.

Now, as you can see the media does not tell the truth. They tell what people want to hear. That is why you must becareful, because seeing is not always believing. That is what you cannot beleive the next front page article or new clip shown on TV. It will most likely be a lie.
