In my analysis I will take apart the main idea as well as the counterargument. First “Without newspapers, citizens will be deprived…) (5-6) Ms. Finley has quite a lot of facts easy to understand and that make the essay enjoyable to read and think about. The facts support her main point and begin with, Lines (27-31) “newspapers keep the public informed so that it can petition speak and write when dissatisfied can vote with adequate knowledge about the candidates and issues and can understand their civic duties and responsibilities “ This is the most important job that newspapers do, they teach us about our candidates and how to fix local problems like plastic recycling. She uses our founding father, Lines (29-31) Thomas Jefferson [who]
<br>Newspapers combat individualism by allowing numerous readers to be exposed to the same thoughts and ideas. There is a shared relationship between newspapers and associations: newspapers aid in the formation of associations, and associations use newspapers as a means of communicating their thoughts and ideas. When there is a notion shared by many individuals, but not
Before newspapers, handwritten news sheets were used (Stephens, n.d.). After the creation of the printing press, the news sheets were then printed on papers which was later called newspapers (Stephens, n.d.). The accuracy and efficiency of the printing press enabled more publishers to use the printing press (Arthur, 2004). Newspapers could then be more widely produced. The ability of mass production of the printing press gave ease in spreading information rapidly to different places (Jeffrey, 2001). This led to a wider use of newspapers. This ability also allowed the newspaper to not easily be corrupted or destroyed since there were so many copies available (Jeffery, 2001). The creation of newspapers allowed the public to gain more knowledge about what was happening in other parts of the world. It also allowed citizens to voice their disagreements with the government. The newspaper was a form of communication that let the voice of citizens be heard (Quinn, 2017). Without the printing press, newspaper would not have emerged and could not have been as widely produced as it was. The creation of newspapers was only possible because of the printing press (Quinn,
Ever since the 17th century, the newspaper has been produced and blown out of proportion, known as mass media. George A. Krimsky shines his own opinion in his essay, “The Role of the Media in a Democracy.” Krimsky provides many examples, reasoning, and rhetoric devices to expand his argument even more, his argument being that; the press should send out straight facts, let people interpret them, and allow the free press to hold the government accountable.
Newspapers provide the public with all kinds of information about what is going on within the community and some of what is going on with the government, including politics. People throughout the community began to only “…remember
Newspapers shaped public opinions by supporting one side or the other -- whether it be Federalists or Republicans. In the Gazette of the United States, John Fenno, its publisher, supported Alexander Hamilton and the Federalists. However, one of Thomas Jefferson’s friends, Philip Freneau, created a competing paper, the National Gazette. This paper strongly supported Republicans. Sometimes, the newspapers would mix rumors and opinions with facts, thereby, controlling the public’s opinion. “News”papers were more like “editorialpapers”. The newspapers of that day directly guided and stoked public
Countertransference happens when a specialist exchanges feelings and sentiments toward the group members in references of their own unresolved disputes. When a therapist has the feeling of anger towards the client, and allows the client to irritate them. There are many unresolved issues that could surface from the therapist, dealing with cultural values, conflicts and having control of the group (Gladding, 2012). It is vital for a therapist to know their own particular countertransference’s before interacting with clients.
“They will continually thrust their own low roof…between you and the sky, when it is the” “heavens you would view” (Thoreau, p. 5). Thoreau thinks people are narrow-minded and have superficial views. He thinks people tend to miss the point by focusing on the trivial or unimportant and sees the newspapers in a similar, not appreciated light. He likens newspapers to beggars who pander to the politics and that people are treating Newspapers, which are flawed and superficial, as if they are gospel. “If a man neglects to read…this is the only treason in these days” as “newspapers are the ruling power” (Thoreau, p. 9).
He starts going into the tv channels we watch, “Fifteen years ago, cable channels like TLC…, Bravo, and the History channel...promised to add texture and and information to the blighted tv landscape. Now these networks run shows about marrying people based on how well they kiss”. These are great examples on how tv channels that are now seen as “trash tv” at one point used to be educational and informative. Another example he used was, “...newspapers won Pulitzer prizes for telling us things we didn’t want to hear. We’ve responded by not buying newspapers anymore”. He’s pointing out to the audience that the newspapers know what they’re doing reporting information the reader needs to know and even award winning for doing their job well but as society declines intellectually so does the popularity of informative newspapers.
The First Amendment of the U.S Constitution expresses that “Congress should make no law… abbreviating the right to speak freely, or of the press.” Though, the nation’s founders plainly felt that it was imperative to secure the freedom of press. The press plays an exceptionally positive and helpful part in a majority rule government. It keeps the general population educated of the national and universal news and happenings. It conveys to the notification of individuals the projects, arrangements and exercises of the administration. Essentially, it keeps the Government aware of present circumstances of the general population's issues, troubles, trusts and yearnings. Along these lines the press assumes a double part. It serves as a scaffold between the
I am submitting this letter to you regarding the matter of the Constitution, which is currently a matter of great debate in this country. The frame of government that the proposed constitution petitions, will properly represent the views and interests of the population of America (Livingston, 1788). It shall do so by granting the elite a role in governmental duties and offices, which will curtail corruption, influencing their ambitions in favor of public service, rather than allowing it to lead towards personal gain. Logically, a representative government is one that is supposed to represent the interests and desires of the population (Lloyd. Livingston 1788), and in order to do so, it will have to appoint representatives that are appointed to office not because of their wealth, instead for their virtue and dedication
In The American Democracy and Its National Principle, Herbert Croly makes an eloquent and poignant case for adopting a nationalistic frame of mind. According to Croly, we are rapidly approaching a junction where we must choose between the traditional values, measures and mind set of our past or embrace the opportunities of the future. As a people we should realize that the future holds great promise, and that is why we should focus on empowering a centralized system of governance that replaces the antiquated approach to governance: regional centricity whose players are driven by their self-interest rather than the common good. This may sound like nationalism but this is an inadequate assessment. To Croly, nationalism is a much grander
Counterfactual means that you describe an event as if it were not the case. Essentially it's removing a a factual part of history to make a point or describe the significance of the group, thing, or idea removed. Writing about historical events in a counterfactual way can have flaws as well as triumphs.
In my opinion the counter arguments were phrased in a very oppressive manner resulting in me as a reader opposing their viewpoints rather then supporting them. It gives America a false perception of a country that only seems to accept one language. A perfect example of an extremely decisive quote was the quotation by Alan West. His insulation that America was on the road to hell because there was a commercial in other languages seems fanatical.
In 1760, The Boston News-Letter was the first newspaper to be continuously published in the United States. A 250-year legacy of printed news could not have lasted if it newspapers didn't not have it uses. Aside from the entertainment value, newspapers exist for the main purpose of bringing news of international, national, and local news to the doorsteps of the people. Without such frequent and stable form of communication, it would be difficult for any nation to call itself a free democracy. Today however, it cannot be expected that newsprint will last forever. Statistical data firmly suggests newspapers around the world are falling both in number and circulation. The past several years have been difficult for newspapers as other news
The belief that journalism is in decline has triggered major alarms, because society needs an informational environment that is easily available to all citizens such as newspapers. There is a large body of journalist that suggests that if television has taken over from the press as our main source of news this may limit our capacity to learn about public affairs; newspapers are believed to be far more effective than television at conveying detailed information necessary to understand complex and detailed issues. There is also widespread concern that if journalism fails as a profession it will not be able to reach large sections of the community, particularly younger or less educated readers. This may reinforce a growing gap among citizens between the information that they receive.
