Weegy: The climax User: Media coverage of Hurricane Katrina can best be described as which kind of journalism? biased public service insignificant ratings driven Weegy: Weegy pro is more capable of answering this type of question. User: Write a paragraph explaining at least two ways in which the media was influenced by the public and the public was influenced by the media during the Vietnam War. Weegy: The intensely negative coverage of the war influenced both politicians and the public. [ Americans depended on television to see and understand the war, but the death and destruction they saw appeared as irrational killing when prospects for the war became increasingly negative. Therefore, the majority of Americans withdrew their support for the war after the Tet Offensive. War coverage declined from 90 percent of all newscasts to 61 percent from Richard Nixon's election through February 1969 (Bonior, Champlin, Kolly, 1984, p.7). Though the media had been covering the anti-war movement before 1968, it now overshadowed the war itself. Draft-card burning and demonstrations provided television with fresher conflict, human impact, and moral issues. With the massive loss of public support for the war, politicians initiated withdrawal policies. ] (More)
