The media plays a huge role in influencing our attitudes in every area of our lives. Whether it is by looking at photographs on the front pages of newspapers or reading in-depth reports we often blindly accept and trust what we are presented with. Unfortunately, we can often be misled – as we have posted about before here, there is a bias that can control and steer our beliefs and we need to be aware of this.
