How Conservative News Influence Media [Conservative news]

There has been much debate over the years about how conservative news influences the media and public opinion. Some people feel that the mass media, which is dominated by the left-leaning tendencies of its staff, is constantly pressured into publishing liberal content in its columns and reports. This kind of liberalization of conservative opinion in the mass media has had a significant effect on how public opinion sees political leaders and government.

The increasing presence and significance of conservative news outlets have increased the need for conservative news watchers. Many feel increasingly threatened by the growing liberalism in our society. Because of this, conservative opinion seems to have become the minority viewpoint point on many important issues. Conservative views are now considered the minority viewpoint on immigration, national defense, various social issues, and even on the question of abortion.

Many who believe they hold a conservative opinion are often surprised by the number of liberals in their neighborhood or in their workplace. Those who hold liberal views on many issues feel threatened by the increasing number of conservatives. Some fear that if they stray from the politically correct crowd, they will find themselves ostracized, cast out, or made fun of by those who do not share their conservative views. Others fear that if they stray from the progressive crowd, they may not be able to work in a progressive company because they will not be able to do their job properly.

While there has been some evidence that exposing children to conservative opinions early in life has a positive effect on their cognitive development, that evidence remains controversial. What is more common knowledge is that exposing young people to the liberal media can have a long-lasting effect on their attitudes toward women, the arts, politics, and religion. For some, exposure to too much liberal media can have a negative effect on their self-esteem. Some psychologists argue that conservative views on social issues have an effect on the level of support given to certain causes and charities.

How does all of this affect you? You may be wondering what impact the liberal media has on your political beliefs, too. Conservative radio talk show hosts often make outrageous claims that the left-leaning media is totally out to get them and is determined to tear down the U.S. and replace it with a global socialist government. More recently, several representatives of the new conservative Tea Party movement have blamed the media for helping to fuel the "phony scandals" of the former Bush administration.

What does this mean for you? If you are a conservative, it behooves you to monitor what the conservative news outlets are saying. There's no need for you to listen to every word said on the air, but you might want to give some of the more strident conservative opinions some careful consideration. Do what you can to ascertain the validity of the stories and opinions you hear.

Of course, this doesn't mean that you necessarily have to go out and start subscribing to one conservative publication or watch your favorite talk show. It is, instead, important for you to pay attention to the stories you hear on the radio and television. Look for stories and opinions that seem to echo across the conservative spectrum and determine whether they represent an opinion you might agree with or not.

Is the information you are hearing about the new conservative movement a true reflection of current events, or is it something designed to make you think a different way? It's up to you to decide. But if you notice a pattern of opinion, trends, and news that you find a bit odd, it's probably time to examine how conservative news influences media culture in general. And it's also a good time to check out how your own conservative views are shaping media opinions.
