Anywho, I was here for a reason, ah yes, I was thinking again, yes, again don't look at me like that!
I was minding my own business, writing an article for the school paper, when I realized that I was choosing my words a lot more carefully and making sure my facts true a lot more than I do when i'm just writing a paper for school or a note for myself.
And I realized that I was being so cautious because in the back of my brain I had realized that whatever I wrote would shape the views of whoever read the paper. If a person hadn't heard of the story before-hand, whatever they thought about it would be shaped by the words I put on the page.
And then I realized that this is the truth of the media, how heavily it shapes our perspectives of the world around us.
Our views on a topic are so often reliant on what we read online, or see on tv, and for many things, whether they be far away from us in a foreign country or about a certain person, the only way we can see things is from someone else's words.
And that means that with a twist of a word, that whole perspective can be warped, with no one the wiser.
I'm planning on making my posts a tad bit longer from now on, and doing a few more topics *coughdiycough*
