I'm currently writing a PIP up on the topic of Gun Violence in America, what do you all think about this topic? Is it overdone?
And Whoot! 1st post for me since signing up
I was thinking about that after watching the documentary by Michael moore "bowling for columbine".Tulipa said:actually media in relation to gun violence would be a very fascinating topic.
purely because the media gets it wrong so much
good idea but maybe a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT angle that isn't really cliched is looking at how the media portrays high school shooting and high school killers. (also teenage killers, on that note i will kill the anchor of cnn if they say "bullied, goth and jocks" in a report on a high school shooting again)Zeik said:I was thinking about that after watching the documentary by Michael moore "bowling for columbine".
I was thinking about making a PIP based on Fear and how the media portrays things such as terrorism. It seems like the media constantly bombards viewers with "the terrorists are going to get you, lock your children inside and have your hand cannons ready". This constant bombardment of fear and uncertainty leads to a breakdown of trust within the community, and leads to violence (mostly gun related) between ethnic groups yada yada yada.
So, gun violence, fear, media.
Makes sense? Sound good? Be honest
