Full quote of question
"Sometimes we forget how powerfully media can influence us. While it might not seem too serious that we are influenced to buy the latest i-phone or the right pair of jeans, media can also influence us in more disturbing ways--just look at the thousands of "fans" who filled social media with support for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect after he was featured on the cover of "Rolling Stone." Why did that image seem to supplant the photos and videos which seem to show him placing one of the bombs that killed 3 people--including the young boy standing right in front of him?
In 1984, Orwell speaks to the more destructive impact media can have on a society. You should be well into the novel by now. Take a minute to list the forms of media that are present in Winston's society and to explain the impact they have on the people of Oceania, as well as on Winston himself."
