Why I Love Media

I have many kinds of love for the media, sometimes I like, sometimes sad, and sometimes I hate the media. But these emotions that have always appeared have given me an inseparable relationship with the media, which has made me “love” for the media.
I like the media because I can learn a lot of knowledge and information in the media world that I cannot accept in the real world. The media made me feel the uniqueness of each individual. At the same time, social media such as short video platforms can sometimes capture the good side of human nature that we have never noticed in our lives. This allows me to see the beauty of the world.
The media also saddens me. Because many people care about the media more and more, everyone spends a lot of time on their mobile phones instead of family and friends. At the same time, the popularity of fast food culture has also made people more and more impetuous, and they are unwilling to spend a lot of time sinking their hearts to think about profound problems.
The media also made me angry. The media is uncontrollable and blind. Although there is a lot of information in the media, the information is not comprehensive. Many netizens become “keyboard men” because of the misleading information and the uncontrollability of the media. At the same time, I think that the media has separated us from the real world, and we cannot distinguish what is the information world and what is the virtual world. Even though I know so much is not good, I still can’t leave the media. Such a sense of powerlessness makes me very angry and at a loss.
