Prejudice is another problem that many feel is an influence from media. In this case, prejudice can include sexism, racism, and other forms of intolerance. The main aspect that goes along with prejudice is that a lot of media encourage stereotypes. Stereotyping is defined as the making of generalizations about groups of people on the basis of limited information (Straubhaar 401). Stereotypes can be easily imposed upon people through media, which is not good, especially when the stereotypes are used as reasoning to treat others unfairly. For example, it is common for mass media to portray women as inferior, placing them in passive roles or low-status occupations. A content analysis of theme music videos indicated that 75% of the videos contained sexually suggestive material and women are frequently portrayed in a condescending manner (Dorman 1). To the male viewer, this portrayal might make it seem acceptable to treat women as inferior, and it also may make younger women accept the idea of being less important. Experimental studies show that young girls exposed to a heavy dose of TV shows that portray women in traditional sex roles do tend to limit their own career aspirations to traditionally female occupations such as a teacher, nurse, secretary, or housewife (Straubhaar 389). Also, a lot of media make it seem that beautiful women are more valuable, which can be a very negative stereotype to many women. These examples help to understand how media creates stereotypes, however they are by no means limited to women and minorities. As long as people can understand how the media portrays different stereotypes and know the difference, it is not harmful. However when the negative stereotypes move into our daily lives, they become a concern.

Most often, in this sphere, a child is on his/her own, children’s consciousness is not formed yet. Therefore, children, as the most impressionable and unsophisticated audience, are exposed to the greatest influence from visual mass media.

The primary strategy for dealing with the uncertainty of success is intentional overproduction. Television, film, and recording industry executives all work in a universe in which they know full well that more than 80 percent of what they develop and create will fail commercially. The key problem is that they don’t know which 10 to 20 percent might actually succeed. So, while it is painful from a resource-allocation standpoint, the strategy has been to produce far more creative goods than might succeed and then see what works. The lesson here for spreadable media, then, is not to get too caught up in trying to design the next big new thing by carefully drawing on the lessons of those that have spread before but rather to be willing to try many different things.

One might turn on any evening news broadcast these days and be bombarded with images of war, violence and stories of unsuspecting citizens victimized in their own communities. Is crime on the increase or is it just media hype? There are countless television shows with plots dedicated to the depiction of criminal activities fouled by law enforcement agencies with the helping hand of the law. Newspaper headlines scream out daily in bold print and action photos of the latest tragedies. Should the public be fearful of what the television conveys to us, be cautious of whatever new crime wave is presented on the media? These questions may lead one to wonder if the depiction of crime in the mass media affects the public’s perception of safety and danger in society.
