The uprising

The people in Thailand oppose the government policies and want to remove the prime minister.The people in Ukraine proceed a demonstration outside the government in order to restore the constitution of 2004.

The media actually influences these uprising, just like the reports on “Arab Springs” which I have seen last year. I think no matter the domestic or foreign media, only for boosting ratings or hit ratings , they always choose the events which are able to draw eyes of the audiences. These always influence the point of view which they report or post will not be the whole truth. The citizens who believe the news will continuously join the social movements that lead to be conflict escalating.
