Question and answer
Q: explain@two ways in which the media does not reflect the society you live in.suggest two ways in which this can be rectified
A: It is an ongoing debate; does television (and other media) reflect society or does society reflect the influence of television? It?s one of those circular questions, like the old chicken and egg, that seems so obvious in answer, [ until you stop to think about it. Why, you wonder, am I pondering it? Why am I writing about it? (When I should be doing something else, it?s true.) I?ll be happy to
share that answer. During one of my many coffee breaks today, I took the time to read pgrundy?s excellent and much anticipated article ?Bimbo bashing and other inglorious sports.? It was indeed thought provoking, but no more so than some of the comments. One in particular caught my attention and sparked another inconvenient train of thought. (I am never going to get these rewrites done.) I hope the author doesn?t mind my using it here. Well, you did post it in a public place for all to see, but I?ll take your name off. ?I'm sorry, but the media did not create this phenomenon. It can be faulted for not giving critical insight, which used to be the media's gift to us. But what it does with women is simply a reflection of a culture-wide bias which, the words of a few of you notwithstanding, is shared by women as well as men. In my household, the women are more absorbed by the Victoria Secret commercials than even the men.? Let?s leave the reference to Victoria?s Secret for now ? although it does bring up a point I?ll come to later ? the enshrining of the nubile (pre-baby) female form as representative of universal sexuality, and exploited as such. It is the first statement that deserves further examination. Is it true? Is the media the follower, the mirror-image of the society we live in? Once upon a time, it may have been. I had to do a lot of remembering. What were television?s influences on my youth? In my elementary school days, I passed the time watching good old Sheriff Andy in Mayberry, which could have been the town I lived in, except for the accents and lack of snow. Aunt Bea looked and acted just like my Aunt Marge. I could truly relate to that one. ]
