Question by bettennis2: Brain Teaser- Do media "lead" social change or "follow" social change?
What do you think? Do we listen to the media or does the media listen to us?
Answer by « Chippy »
It's a mutual relationship. The media is on a constant quest to please us by adhering to our stereotypes, but people these days easily conform with those qualities that are shown in TV programmes, movies, and music. Think of it this way; The media wants to be like us, but we want to be like the media. It's a giant circle; like a dog chasing its own tail.
