The first blog I visited was Tereza R.’s blog about media and food. It discusses the issue of media serving us fast food as being good for our health and a time-saver. It is true that it saves time, which is why personally I occasionally visit these institutions like McDonald’s or KFC, but when one reads the impacts on health, it is pretty scary. And Tereza talks about the media being connected with it. Therefore, it is very much recommended to visit her blog.
Second blog I visited was Katia’s blog about Information war between Russia and the west, mainly the USA. This issue is not that explored in Europe, in my opinion, based on the fact that I was not well-informed about it, before reading Katia’s blog. Therefore, if you wish to explore the issue of biased media of both sides – east & west – you should definitely give her blog a read.
Third blog I visited was Carla’s blog. Carla talks about the issue of media and violence. How should the media portray violence in their inputs? Should it be censored or not? In my opinion there is no right or wrong answer on this question, because it is so controversial and the opinions are polarized. Visit this blog to read more about the issue!
Fourth blog I visited was Akzhan’s blog. She writes about Information Warfare in the Media. Akzhan makes many great arguments about this issue, mainly the fact that media are biased and do not deliver 100% accurate and truthful information, as they serve their own purposes. I absolutely recommend reading her blog, if you wish to explore this issue further.
Last, but not least. The fifth blog I visited was Tereza D.’s blog. She explores the issue of media and eating disorders which I think is an immensely underrated issue. It is so important that we finally say that the media is fooling us with images of perfection and we put a sstop to it. It is not perfect to be malnurished and it is definitely not pretty or healthy. Personally I was a victim of this promotion and I was obsessed with my food-income, luckily I grew out of it and now I eat whatever I like. Visit Tereza’s blog to read more about it!
I hope you enjoyed reading my blog.
