This can relate to Marxism who say that the owners have an influence is creating media messages and opinions which support capitalism.

Cultural Affects that the media has a different influence on different social groups, and its influence is different based on their CAGE.

Represented children as acting violent because of the televisions influence. This then relates to the "magic bullet" theory suggesting that TV has an immediate and strong effect upon their audience.

Media violence result showed that the ones who didn't afterwards went through a stage of catharsis, showing the effect of the media upon people.


The media shapes norms and values which comes through the repetition and exposure which are used to shape meanings and opinions.
