How does the media's seeming love affair with the mafias,as an entertainment topic, glamorize organize crime in the eyes of the American public?
Organized crime is also influenced by the entertaining mystique of mafia movies. There are no greater fans of Hollywood's glorified romantic mobsters than members of the modern syndicates. This is because the mob as we know it is long past its prime.

User: Why do you think the American public is so entrance by films about the mafia and other form of organized crime?

Weegy: Americans have always been drawn to depictions of criminals. They like people who (they feel) are living life in their own way, according to their own code of honor. [ I believe that this is why they like films about the mafia. We Americans feel that we are a nation of non-conformists. We feel that we are people who are willing to stand up for what we believe in, regardless of what the law says. The mafia seems to us like it represents this sort of independent spirit that does not simply give in to doing what the society says we should. Finally, I think that we (men especially) want to feel that we are tough. We are people who take our problems into our own hands and do not need others to solve them for us. I think this is one reason why we are attracted to the mafia. They take care of their own problems in a way that shows that they are very "manly" and self-sufficient. refer ]

The media's seeming love affair with the mafia, as an entertainment topic, glamorize organized crime in the eyes of the American public by making films and television series such as that of the HBO's popular series, The Sopranos, as an example, [ many of the characters lived a life of luxury that the average person would love to share. The media us illegal tactics to gain profit and ratings in the marketplace. In order for them to make money, they will have to get a lot of ratings; which mean to do any means necessary (doing illegal tatics) to make money. They will have to mix up the legal rules for criminal purpose. ]
