How influentital the Media on Teens Are

It has been a hot topic discussed heatedly for the time being that how indeed the media influence our teens. Different peopie come up with different opinions. The following passages are two different comments given by several teenagers ranging from 15 to 20.

One, Teens are the most influenced and the easiest to be influenced by the media. The media influence the way they dress, talk and conduct themselves. From the latest trends to the coolest celebrities, they imirate what they see, whether it's Katie Holmes's new haircut or the pink shirt that Christina Aguilera wore. So it follows that more serious actions like carrying arms or doing drugs could be copied as well.

Young people are impressionable. Therefore, some request that the media should take responsibility by changing some of the content of their shows especially those for teens. They are huge consumers of media, so networks should show them respect by promoting positive images. They think some shows confuse the lines between entertainment and life.The producers know their audiences are young, so they should realize that teens watching "reality" shows might not be able to tell the difference between fantasy and fiction.

Opposing voices have also come from others. They think that they use the media--magazines, television and movies--to connect to one another and to the world, so naturally,they're influenced by the images the media present. For example, a boy would be lying if he said he didn't want to be like Brad Pitt. Pitt's flawless style, good looks and moneymaking talent seem to define what's "cool".

Nevertheless, those teens hold that the media only provide information, what they as viewers do with that knowledge is up to themselves. They have to learn to make their own choices and accept responsibility for their actions. To blame entertainment figures for certain crimes committed by teens is

funny. It's not the fault of TV. Media are an expression of our culture--not the cause. It's time we stop making the media a scapegoat for our nation's problems. It's not the media's job to make sure kids understand what they're watching; that responsibility belongs to parents. Parents and schools should dedicate more time to establishing clear rules of discipline.The influence of parents and teachers--the teens' true role model--carries more weight with teenagers than what they hear on the radio or see at the movies.


目前,传媒於青少年的切实影响已经成为热点话题,在 这方面讨论也很热烈,不同的人有不同的观点。下面是几个15到20岁的青少年的两种看法。


正因为青少年比较容易受影响,所以,有些人呼吁传媒必须对青少年负责,改变其节目的某些内容——尤其是那些针对青少年的节目。 由於青少年是传媒庞大的消费群体,因此传媒网络应该树立正面的形象,以尊重他们。他们认为,一些节目模糊了娱乐表演和现实生活之间的界限。这些制片人知道,他们的观众还是小孩子,所以应该意识到观看「仿真」节目的青少年,也许不能把想象与虚腹分辨开来。


尽管如此,这些青少年坚持认为传媒仅仅是在传递信息,至於作为观众怎样对待这些知识则由他们自己决定。他们应该学会自己做出选择,为自己的行为承担责任。 因为青少年的一些犯罪行为而去谴责娱乐圈内人士,这听来实在荒谬。电视并没有错。传媒也只是在表现文化,而不是造就文化。现在不应该再让传媒去当社会问题的替罪羊了。让孩子们理解所看节目的内涵并不是传媒的职责,他们的父母才应责无旁贷。孩子的父母和所在学校还应该投入更多的时间去制定明确的纪律规章。父母和老师才是青少年真正的楷模,他们带来的影响远远超过青少年从收音机里听来的或是从电影中所看到的东西。
