در اینجا سوال مبحث Negative News in Reports و نمونه پاسخ مربوط به آن را مشاهده می کنید:
The tendency of news reports in the media is to focus more on problems and emergencies than on positive developments. Some believe that this might harm the individuals and the society as a whole. To what extent do you agree or disagree.
Nowadays, newsrooms are inclined to cover negative news in reports rather than the positive ones. This surely has a great influence not only at a personal level, but also at a community level. I strongly agree that the media should cover good news equally for betterment of societies.
Admittedly, the idea of focus on problems does have its merits, including raising awareness about the issues being faced by societies, leading to forcing the authorities to act on them to avoid facing public anger. Nevertheless, The gravest danger an unbalanced coverage creates is a negative mindset in the community, which are bombarded with tons of bad news on a daily basis. This may lead to pessimistic attitudes in dealing with the situation. For example, viewers may perceive that the government is not working efficiently and diligently if media only present failures as well as corruption cases without mentioning the achievements.
Additionally, media houses are more interested in covering heinous crimes, which can sensationalize the masses, leading to better readers or viewers. This activity, however, may have a daunting impact on the masses. For instance, people watching murders and robbery incidents regularly may feel insecure about their safety all the time, which may results in an increased stress level and existential fears. Finally, there are many unsung heroes in the society, who rarely make it to headlines or breaking news. This may undermine the appreciation they should receive, leading to a discouragement in spite of the committed good deeds. Sharing their story in the media not only motivates them, but also inspires others to work for society.
To sum up, being one of the pillars of democracy, media houses should behave responsibly by giving enough coverage to heroes who work for a better tomorrow as well as the positive incidents which may bring new hope to the community.
