Is the media a dictatorship nation without territory?

Debate Information

Correct me if im wrong but the media has been for years the center of every global political issue since you can remember.

The media dictates what people should think.
The media dictates the topics to share and discuss within friends and family.
The media dictates what you should focus on etc... i could go on.
For example, "hey no winner yet for the mega millions" long lines at the store tomorrow.

No other country or territory has as much influence on the world as the media.

Most importantly of all,

The media could easily cause world wars.

US president makes a remark, another world super power leader hears this from the media and as a result responds with actions.

For example, in the old days Vietnam used the power of the media to disuade Americans from winning the war.

Another example are drug cartels in Mexico using the media as personal use.

One last example of the media could be used in many ways to dictate any picture. Trials, trade deals, currency, elections, propaganda, etc... yes the world would never know half the stuff going onnin the world if it werent for the media, but at what point is it pretty much a concern in every single peoples daily life? And at what cost?.

The freedom of information in the US and around the world has both done bad and done good.

But is it regulated?  and it should. If something as powerful as the media can start wars then we should all be concerned. And if not seen as a dictator country without borders then what of?

    @bjinthirty ;

    You should read Noam Chomsky. I would say that the basis for your theory is right, but I disagree with the conclusion because I think you have the relationship between the media and actual power flipped around.

    The media is not so much powerful as a powerful tool in the hands of the already powerful. It is not a dictatorship in and of itself, but the tongue of tyrants.
    At some point in the distant past, the universe went through a phase of cosmic inflation,
    Stars formed, planets coalesced, and on at least one of them life took root.
    Through a long process of evolution this life 
    developed into the human race.
    Humans conquered fire, built complex societies and advanced technology .

    All of that so we can argue about nothing.

    I completely agree with you.Media is the crucial part which could be helpful to nation and at a same time it could be destructive (brainwashing).

    You conflate a lot of things... Media (which can be anything from movies to newspapers to youtube or twitter and everything in between) does not "dictate" anything...  For every outlet that defends a certain position, there is another defending the opposite, it's like a buffet and you are responsible for what you eat... 

    Media is only a tool, you should focus on who's using that tool and to what purpose... There's no point blaming the gun, right?

    Only the FOX Nation part (along with a few satellite radio and social media entities). It's sad that they COULD gain a territory in the next few days :-( !  VOTE (Personally, if at all possible).

    media is always bias to what general thinking about. I concern about the future because the media does not try to correct reliable information, they copy information from the AP.
