I've had this question in my mind for a long time. It's kind of like "Did the chicken come first or the egg?" Do you think what the media (tv, newspapers, magazines, etc) shows/writes about affects the way in which people act/talk to each other, or do you think the media simply presents society's present interests and customs?

Please share your views!Star

i think its both
 
1. media shows about society
 
2. society is affected with wht media shows
 
but sometimes media turns a minority into majority. eg. if you focus on homosexuality excessively, ppl thinks its a norm though in reality it is not.

I think the same . Sometimes media can blow things out of proportion & create a hype out of nothing. Eg Jade Goody !

Usually it is the society's pulse which decides what media shows though what media shows does affect the society to a large extent. But with channels like Star News, Aaj Tak, India TV and other hindi news channels I'm not sure if they go by what society wants to see and whether their third grade reporting affects the society in anyway.

As an example this report of India TV right after the Mumbai attacks:
