1. What role does the media play in our lives?
Media does not only provide us entertainment such as music, video and games. It also plays a very important role in our life everyday. It provide us with the newest world wide information around the world such as U.S president Obama is trying make another move on something or in South Africa there are civil war going on right now. Media can come in many kinds of form such as TV, Phone and Computer social network such as Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo and Google. Nowadays media information has been traveling really fast from place to place. Throughout these few years media has been really helpful in our daily life such as providing us information about the economy around the world, protest in the middle east and Africa and how the world is slowly changing from time to time.
2. Have you ever read or watched a news stroy that made you angry and want to take action?
Yes I have been angry and mad a lot of time when I'm reading news and watching TV about the world. Some of events that's happening in the world are just really cruel and I felt the excruciating pain in my heart when I saw the things that are happening around the world. For example, when we are watching the Hotel Rwanda I saw a lot of house were burned and people were slaughtered through the media. It just make me angry and I could barely control my emotion. At first, I wanted to take action in a bad way that might make the situation worst such as killing all the people in the army but after thinking for a while I told myself if I do that I'm turning to one of them. I decided if this kind of stuff ever happens again I would really be willing to take part in the action to help let the others know what's happening around the world that was hidden from us.
3. Who is accountable for the media
A lot of people are accountable to the media. Of course the people that posted the media must take responsibility to what they made because for those who are watching the media they want to know the fact and not what is not true. The media maker could not even make the issue to not a big deal or they could not exaggerate the situation too; only the fact. Also in my opinion I think the government around the world should be accountable to the media. They should consider to help each other not only to benefit them from their economy but also they should help each other because in every country and nation there would be useful, helpful and worth learning culture to be spread and to be shared around the world. Moreover, if you help the others the world would be a better place for everybody to live in as God teaches us that we should be selfish but helped the others when they needed our help. As in Hebrew 13:16 it said do not neglect to do good and to share what you have for such sacrifice pleases to God.
6:38 Give, and it will
be given to you. Good measure, pressed down,
shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the
you use it will be measured back to you.
I've read a lot of news and article telling the world that Dalai Lama from Tibet and his people are seeking independence from China. He told us that the international investigation to China's on demonstrators in Tibet said that around hundred of people had died. In the perspective of China's government they think that they are three reasons why they claim Tibet as their own land. First the government believe Tibet's territory had left over for China in thirteenth Century when China and Tibet were still in the control of Kublai Khan Empire's control. The second reasons is that China is a very populated country and the government has a lot of society problem. Thus, China found the society can be better if they could have more land from Tibet so the government can take over Tibet and find a way to make life better for their people. Third China has a thought that Tibet needs their help in order to have a balance and to maintain their successful society to prevent Buddhism which China is against to influence Tibet culture too. However in Tibet's opinion the think that they had been not given rights in the past 40 years by China government. Second China also destroy Tibet's culture, elimination of religious freedom and their religion symbol too. Third, they think that they are given rights by global law to maintain their own government instead of letting China ruling and obeying their rule. http://www.angelfire.com/ca/pumpkingurl/index.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1581875/Dalai-Lama-condemns-Chinas-cultural-genocide-of-Tibet.html
