They only show what the people WANT to see and not what they NEED to see. Don't believe everything and anything that you watch on TV, read on the papers and hear about on radio - they no longer bring the news, they MAKE the news. 

 

It's amazing how the madlang pipol still buy those crap like the "rated PG" disclaimer by MTRCB that comes on at the start of your favorite telenobelas or shows. I mean, pano mapapatnubayan ng magulang ang mga batang nakakapanood kung ang mga nakatatanda mismo tinatangkilik din yung palabas na merong tema na hindi angkop para sa mga batang manonood in the first place?

 

Just sayin'  :ninja:

This is actually a broad topic in which each form can be dissected of - such as citing any instances or for discussion purposes.

 

1.       Broadcast

2.       Film

3.       Video games

4.       Audio recording and reproduction

5.       Internet

6.       Print media

7.       Outdoor media

 

What is more compelling about  this topic is how they manipulate people in their lives.

 

1.      Activism

2.      Advertising

3.      Hoaxing

4.      Marketing

5.      Political campaigning

6.      Propagandising

7.      Psychological warfare

8.      Public relations

Regardless of the medium used by the media to deliver their message, it is up to the audience to use their heads first. Severe lack of common sense is what most pinoys need to really work on - the ability to question and think first. If the madla easily falls prey to even the typical "kwentong barbero" or "tsismis" around, pano pa kaya sa mga napapanood nila sa araw-araw?  :mellow:

in general, popular media (whether social, print, etc.) influences not only what people see or read, but also the point of view / angle that they use to present information shapes how we react to events. So we have to be careful of biases (check who are the owners of the media outlets), and more important but difficult, we should not swallow everything we see or read hook line and sinker, but be critical in our thinking.

Napansin ko, nitong umuwi ako ng huli. Wala ng ibang palabas kundi drama. Bale

Etong mga dramang ito, iisa lang naman kwento lagi. Tungkol sa pagiibigan ng langit at lupa. Tungkol sa isang anak na matagal ng nawawala. Tungkol sa paghihiganti. At higit sa lahat  Mayaman at may pinagaralan = Masama. Mahirap = Biktima. Ano ang aral? Huwag na magaaral dapat, laging isipin na di mo kasalanan na mahirap ka.

 

Wala na talaga tayong creative programing sa panahon na ito. Kawawa lang ang masa na di naman kaya magbayad ng cable. Ang TV lang ang pinakapinagkukunan nila ng kaalaman. Ano matutunan nila kung puros drama sa magdamag pinapanood nila, at yung mga documentaries na informative pinapalabas kung kelan antok na mga tao.

 

Ang tingin ko, talagang sinasadya yata ito ng dambuhalang mga media networks para panatilihing mangmang, busabos, at patay gutom ang mga masa. Kasi mas pakikinabangan sila ng ganun.

it's such a broad question, even if you break it down per medium

 

to answer it broadly, it affects everything about a person, from what we wear to what we eat, what we believe, what we stand for, etc. 

 

I don't know where you're going with this, so it would help if you could expound a bit.

what are you curious about the media?

 

how does the media do it?

 

what techniques do they use?

 

why is content skewed a certain way?

 

who controls content?

 

there's still a lot of things under that, media in society is a 4 year college course in some universities.

Sounds good. But those are questions that would possibly suggest any subjective ideas which made me think of discussing them on the later part of this thread. Meanwhile,  why can’t you just cite an instance to support any of them? Hmmm.

Don't always believe what media says.  Its all about the ratings.They focus on what the"masa" want them to see. Example - Do you think they added a high % of devotees sa Feast of Black Nazarene ng Quiapo because of their coverage.  What the masses interpret on what they see.  They bring so much hope that they will be successful as the small number of success story it has that the media had focused on.

Not to mention, ito lang talaga pinakasource ng learnings nila. Ang daming mga probinsya ang nagdedecline na mga public libraries. Tamad na magbasabasa ang mga masa. Pinapatanga lang sila lalo ng mga programa na puros na lang walang katapusang drama. Wala na talaga tayong mga creative programming ngayon.

Kaya nga, ang values na tinuturo ng media ay. Mayaman at may pinagaralan = Masama. Mahirap = Bikitima. Imbes magsumikap, umasa na lang sa mga pacontest na baka swertehin sila manalo ng 1 million. Instant milyonaryo. Sa panahon ngayon magkano na lang ba ang 1 million? Goodluck makahanap ka magandang house and lot sa maayos na subdivision sa ganitong halaga. At pupusta ako, sa mga nanalo ng 1 million, karamihan sa kanila naghihirap pa din hangang ngayon.

 

Ang mga telenobela naman, escapist fantasy binebenta. Na one day ang manliligaw nila singpogi ni Jehrico Rosales. At madidiskubre na anak sila ng isang mayaman. Hay.

 

Sa kabilang banda, sobrang powerful ng media, kaya naman ito ielevate ang taste ng masa. Bakit naman noon, ang dami nating matatalinong programa. Abangan susunod na Kabanata. Kapag May Katwiran ipaglaban mo. Agrisiete. Negosyete. Sineskwela. Nakakaapreciate din naman ang pinoy noon ng english programming. Bakit ngayon kahit yung english programs tinatagalize na. Kaya bumababa English proficiency natin eh. Nung kabataan ko din, ang mga noontime shows minsan dyan nagiging battleground ng mga spelling contest sa elementary at highschool. Yung mga informative documentaries din meron pag sabado. Ngayon puros hulihan na lang ng mga adik na pulis. Ano nangyari sa mga panahon na yun bat ganito na napapanood natin?

to support what?

 

I'll give you an example of how media affects society.

 

Remember during the 90s, we had Richard Gomez, Cesar Montano, The Guwapings, Anjanette Abayari, as the decade's standards for beauty.  The 90s was when the Pinoy/Pinay look reigned and people gravitated towards this aesthetic.

 

Enter the new millenium and the advent of Taiwanese pop stars F4, meteor garden and the eventual entry of koreanovelas, and now the preferred standards of beauty has changed from moreno/morena to chinito. Not that the morenas got uglier, mind you.

This is one of the classic examples how the media (of marketing/advertising) plays a vital role in our society. Though the milestone of ever changing ‘preferences’ especially among our young generations  have always been taken advantage by many of our marketing and advertising companies.  

 

We can differentiate between the hype and the fad among the people and its system involved.  They are the consumers and the producers in the area of marketing/advertising. Those consumers who are being targeted and get excited over a certain product to the point they begin to feel they need to consume such, are called hype. The producers or the marketing companies create a system and apply it through a clever marketing strategy to which a product is advertised as the thing everyone must have can be called as fad. So they go hand in hand and that's manipulation all about. 

 

This is how it seems to be the media succeed in manipulating us. We buy something that we do not need but just because we see it from our favorite celebrities and we think it can be as effective as the one being endorsed.

Its hard to trust media nowadays as they are being paid as well to attack certain entities (businesses, individuals, political figures).

 

IMHO, media today is still the same thing as it is described in the book "1984" by George Orwell.

 

As for manipulation, i agree. Viewers are easily manipulated by the media by what they see and hear.

 

I guess its up to the viewer/listener to determine for themsleves, although most Filipinos now especially the youth are losing depth of thought.

Grabe! This is soooooooooooo news worthy. It deserves everyone's attention great job local media.

 

 

I remember nung time na north Korea threatened to launch one of its Missile and start a nuclear war, the whole world was worried, CNN kept talking about it, at ang local TV patrol natin? Kalahati ng airtime nila sinayang lang sa interview kay Kris Aquino tungkol sa hiwalayan nila ni James Yap. Right tama yan. Ito ang impormasyon na mas kelangan ng masa
