6. When they say that revolution will not be televised has been thrown out the window now a days. In our modern world if there is a revolution going on it will get put on the air. Maybe not all the way on the air, but video footage about the revolution will be put on screen to show viewers what is going on in the world.
The news media can weaken and strengthen a revolution. One way that it may strengthen a revolution is if when coverage gets played on the air maybe it focuses on how bad a leader is of a certain group of people somewhere. Other countries may have need feel to help out that particular palce so they may do what they can to support the country to help get rid of the person in power to get a new good leader.
On the other hand it can weaken a revolution if people in the world do not agree on why the certain place is going through a revolution. Lets say a place does not like how the government is making new laws. If people in the world do not think that the laws are bad or harmful to the place they will not be supportive so the revolution will not be very successful.
7. I feel as though the less people in America read printed material the less we gain from it. That can mean the less knowledge we get, the less truth we get from the world, or the less we can intake in our minds. Kids and teens now a days rely to much on the internet and where from the internet they get their information. Facebook is a site where many things can seem like they are true but in actuality they are completely false.
People are also reading less and less books today. That is a bad thing because books can increase our knowledge of thing and also improve our critical thinking skills. An example is mystery books can help improve critical thinking by making us solve a case throughout the book. That could help us in our everyday lives.
The internet is an easy way to take something and turn it around. What I mean by that is it is easy to take truth and turn it around into a false statement. An example is if the president says he is for something but against another thing the website YouTube someone can make a video of that and turn it against the president and make it seem like he wants something bad. If we read the same story in an article in a newspaper they people in the newspaper know they can’t lie to how they feel about the topic so they have to give us the straight truth.
The big picture is nto only do we lose knowledge from reading less and less printed material but we also lose truth as well. Truth goes a long way and knowing the truth can stop people from assuming something that is not truthful one bit.
