The major advantage of the modern mass media is that it can provide us with huge amounts of news and of entertainment quite easily. This enriches our lives because it makes us better informed and it gives us things to do at all times.
There are many possible negatives about the media. Culturally, having a mass media can push us towards having a single culture. It can destroy regional cultures within a country and diminish the differences between different nations. Media can also have a huge impact on the values we have so that, for example, our children might develop bad values if they are constantly exposed such values in the media.
