Mass media
Mass media ( that is the press, the radio and television ) play an
important role in the life of society. They inform, educate and
entertain people. They also influence the way people look at the world
and make them change their views. Mass media mould public opinion.
Millions of people in their spare time watch TV and read newspapers.
Everybody can find there something interesting for him. On the radioone
can hear music, plays, news and various discussions or commentaries of
current events. Lot's radio or TV games and films attract a large
audience. Newspapers uses in different ways, but basically they are
read. There is a lot of advertisment on mass media. Some of the TV and
radio stations and newspapers are owned by different corporations. The
owners can advertise whatever they choose. But it is hardly fair to say
that mass media do not try to raise cultural level of the people or to
develop their artistic taste. Mass media brings to millions of homes not
only entertaiment and news but also cultural and educational programs.
There are more then six TV channels and lot's of radio stations and
newspapers now in the Russian Federation.

Mass media
The mass media play an important part in our lives. Newspapers, radio and especially TV inform us of what is going on in this world and give us wonderful possibilities for education and entertainment. They also influence the way we see the world and shape our views.
Of course, not all newspapers and TV programmes report the events objectively, but serious journalists and TV reporters try to be fair and provide us with reliable information.
It is true that the world today is full of dramatic events and most news seems to be bad news. But people aren't interested in ordinary events. That is why there are so many programmes and articles about natural disasters, plane crashes, wars, murders and robberies. Good news doesn't usually make headlines. Bad news does.
Some people say that journalists are given too much freedom. They often intrude on people's private lives. They follow celebrities and print sensational stories about them which are untrue or half-true. They take photos of them in their most intimate moments. The question is — should this be allowed?
The main source of news for millions of people is television. People like TV news because they can see everything with their own eyes. And that's an important advantage. Seeing, as we know, is believing. Besides, it's much more difficult for politicians to lie in front of the cameras than on the pages of newspapers.
Still, many people prefer the radio. It's good to listen to in the car, or in the open air, or when you do something about the house.
Newspapers don't react to events as quickly as TV, but they usually provide us with extra detail, comment and background information.
The Internet has recently become another important source of information.
Its main advantage is that news appears on the screen as soon as things happen in real life and you don't have to wait for news time on TV.
