    Most of the news companies, it can be a TV channel, a newspaper or a radio station, not completely but mostly provides subjective news. Reason of this is that every people have thinking on specific subjects and this thinking affects especially journalists. For example when a clash news between soldiers and a group of men broadcasting by a newspaper company;
    If this company owned by the country which soldiers work for, the group of men named terrorists. But if the newspaper is at the group of men’s side, the men named volunteer. If it is another country’s newspaper the group of men may named as members. This is a very simple example, in short all the press establishments have a perception and they write through this direction. But major thing is the scale of this subjectivity. When you are selecting what you read you should consider this.

    Many newspapers don?t directly say the truth. Generally they add their thoughts, they are not objective. Newspapers change news to their own words. Changing news can usually cause big differences and incoherence between news and the truth. For example in neutral version, a group of four soldiers were in camouflaged observation post and try to protect their country. At 4:00 am a group of twelve men opened fire. Although four soldiers returned fire and radioed for support, they were dead. Newspapers report this incident differently. Newspaper which have an opposite thoughts and aims reported that IRA terrorists killed four soldiers. Another newspaper reported that IRA volunteers killed British occupants because of their similar aims. Finally, newspapers change some parts in the news by considering their goals.

    newspapers give daily events to the people but they can’t be objective all the time. Consequently, people can’t see the truth. Newspapers generally make some modifies about the events and tell them to the people like this. for example, there is a news about conlict between soldiers and a group of rebels. in neutral version, a group of four fully-equipped and armed soldiers were in a camouflaged observation post, looking and listening carefully to try to detect anyone crossing the frontier from the neighboring country. this was the original one but a newspaper told it differently. The troops,three privates and a sergeant , were in a camouflaged observation post near a crossing point often used by INLA and IRA men to smuggle weapons and explosives. in the original event, there wasn’t any information about who are the rebels so newspapers can change the news with some adding.

    Media is an important way to informing people mostly people are effected by the tv and the newspaper.If media can be used correctly it can occures good outcomes for people. In the book according to the text its obvious that there is a fake information, for instance a group of four soldiers were in camouflaged try to protect their country at 4:00 am a group of twelve men opened fire and killed them but the newspaper told oppositely, it reported that IRA terrorists killed four soldiers and another newspaper reported that IRA volunteers killed British occupants because of their similar aims.To conclude, newspapers transform some parts of news according to their profits.

    There is a truth about media that they generally transmit incidents
    wrongly. In the neutral version of events we saw that four armed
    soldiers have killed. But there is no information about who killed
    them. But in the another examples of newspapers told us the
    story in different ways. They give some informations that not true.
    Actually beside of giving intrusive information they can told us the
    actions that not happened. It is not hard to see that they are not
    objective too and it can makes some bias on readers.

    Please look at the sample paragraph for this assignment and meke corrections on your papers accordingly:

    Newspapers could sometimes give biased news. Their news is affected from the group they support. It is possible to give an example to this by using the news given in the course book. In the neutral version it says that 4 fully-armed soldiers who were in an observation post to find out if anyone was crossing the board from the neighbouring country were killed by a group of 12 men. When the right wing tabloid newspaper was giving the same news, it used biased expressions. It used the term “murderous attack by IRA terrorists” instead of simply saying 4 soldiers were killed by 12 men. The newspaper published by the political wing of the IRA also gave the news in a different way. It called the soldiers spies and the 12 men volunteers in the news. Just by looking at this example, it is possible to see how biased the newspaper could be sometimes.

    Firstly,media tells us reality or what to think ?.The media has been controling recently by their owners and giving us biased news.To illustrate ; the original news is :An assemblage of 4 fully-equipped and armed soldiers were in a camouflaged observations post to find out anyone crossing the from the near country.The place has known as an area where to bringing guns and explosives.Than soldiers has been killed by a group of 12 men and 12 men left.One of the newspapers summed up that was an terrorist attack which intended by IRA for kill British Army ,other one said British intelligence unit spies were killed and their weapons and equipment captured by INLA freedom fighters.In the end,each newspaper summed up the incident with bias.
