Sometimes known as the Fourth Estate, the media plays a powerful role in today's society. It is held responsible for keeping the public informed and supporting a healthy democracy. However, some worry that the media presents the news in a way that is too sensationalized or biased, with its primary motives being ratings and profits rather than the good of the public. This volume examines differing viewpoints on what can reasonably be expected of the media. Readers will evaluate the effects of the internet on the media, and the various impacts that the media has on society, including political, cultural, and economic.
