In recent years, much attention has been paid to the media and their role in society. The media, especially television, have become an important political weapon in the United States’ campaign to influence the country’s vote in the upcoming presidential election. While campaigning for president, George W. Bush often referred to the media as “enemies of the American people.” President Bush signed into law in 2021 a bill that called the Fair Media Reporting Act.
News. First, the word ‘news’ is an informal use of the term ‘communication of opinions or views.’ In its more common usage, the term refers to reports of human activity, which is the most basic definition of what makes news. News is therefore a subjective term, meaning something reported as of human activity, which makes it more subjective than objective.
Personal Impact. News can have a fairly wide range of effects, affecting not only the people who write about it but the people who read it and the people around them. For instance, a piece about a local dog bite can make a different impression than a piece about a man bites the woman he was intimate with.
Different Societies. Because news stories are generally about human activity, they have a wide range of societal effects. Because of this, some news stories will be more likely to make different populations react in different ways. Consider a story about a local puppy mill, one that has been exposed on television. People from different communities might be shocked by the conditions the puppy mill uses, which would result in an editorial call for people to boycott the paper, not only in the town but throughout the state.
Cuomo. Probably the most popular word in the news today. Cuomo means “of or relating to the county or state of Connecticut.” So from this, we know that the meaning of Cuomo has to do with a county or state (probably the same as the English county names). It can also mean “of or relating to the news.”
This is just an example, and there are many more. But what I’ve shown you is an example of how news can effect us in very unexpected ways. In my next article, I’ll give more examples of ways in which news can change us. But for now, let’s keep in mind the four words that starting with cuomo connecticutian. This shows how news can connect strange things in our lives. So take some time to think about the words you associate with your favorite news stories, and consider the impact those words might have on you.
