The relationship between media and crime is complex. One can say many things. So, here are a few perspectives that you may want to consider. First, if the media presents a crime again and again on a news program, it may give the perception that we live in a crime infested society, when, in fact, it is only one incident. Second, the angles that a news program films a scene of a crime can bring great distortion. Camera angles can make a crime seem bigger or smaller than actuality. Third, the very accessibility of crime in the media may have a distorting effect, especially if one compares this withe the past. For example, a person may think that crime is on the rise by the sheer coverage of crime, when, in fact, there is no rise at all. Perhaps all there is is greater coverage and great accessibility.
