Assignment 1: Role of the Media
The media plays a significant role in sharing stories that matter to the public. However, the media is also influenced by television ratings and tends to highlight those stories and information that increase its ratings (Uscinski, 2009, p. 796).
In fact, throughout history, it has been noted that “if it bleeds, it leads”—which means, the more gruesome and bloody the story, the greater the ratings.
Submission Details:
By the due date assigned, in a minimum of 250 words, post to the Discussion Area your response to the following:
What role should the media play while covering stories and issues on terrorism?
Should the violence depicted in the media be censored in an effort to prevent public fear and panic? Why?

Through the end of the module, read all of your fellow students’ postings and respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.
