How does the media affect the public?

Media influence the public:
*We live in the society that people defend in the information and communication to keep moving in the right direction and do daily activity like work, entertainment, health care, education, personal relation ship, travelling and anything else that we have to do.
*A common person in the city usually wakes up checks the TV news or newspaper, goes to work, makes a few phone calls, eats with their family when possible and makes his decisions based on the information that he has either from their co workers, news, TV, friends, family, financial reports, etc.
