Example
  • Many people blame the media for what goes wrong
    in society because it is such a big part of their
    lives. As Williams puts it
  • The centrality of the mass media in everyday
    life has led people to blame the media for a
    range of social ills. Whether it is increased
    violence in society, the growth of juvenile
    delinquency, football hooliganism, inner-city
    riots, terrorism, permissive behaviour, the
    decline of religiosity, falling educational
    standards, political apathy or any other social
    problem, we are ready to attribute fabulous
    powers to the media. Complaints about the
    influence of the mass media are often underpinned
    by the assumption that this is something new.
    (2010, p.1)
  • This tendency to blame the media, however long
    it has been around, has to be seen in context of
    the different ways in which people use the media.

Plagiarism and how to avoid it.
  • Always take details of your source on first
    reading.
  • Differentiate between the authors words and your
    own in your notes
  • Follow the referencing guidelines Gold Book or
    for more detail use library site (link also in
    skills site)

8
Acceptable or not?
  • Many people blame the media for much of what goes
    wrong with society including such things as
    increased violence, juvenile delinquency and
    educational standards. Williams (2010, p.1)
    suggests that these complaints about the mass
    media are often underpinned by the assumption
    that this is something new

9
Acceptable or not?
  • Williams(2010) suggests that the critical role of
    mass media in everyday life has led people to the
    belief that the media are to blame for a range of
    social problems. He lists such things as
    football hooliganism, inner-city riots,
    terrorism, and falling educational standards as
    some of these problems.

10
Acceptable or not?
  • As the media plays such a big part in peoples
    lives they tend to blame it for many of societys
    problems such as increased violence in society,
    the growth of juvenile delinquency, football
    hooliganism, inner-city riots, terrorism,
    permissive behaviour, the decline of religiosity,
    falling educational standards, and political
    apathy (Williams, 2010,p,1). This tendency to
    blame the media has to be seen in context of the
    different ways in which people use it. (would all
    be double spaced)

11
Acceptable or not?
  • Williams (2010, p1) suggests that the centrality
    of the media in everyday life has led people to
    blame the media for a range of social ills . He
    also suggests that we are ready to attribute
    fabulous powers to the media.
