There is a huge impact of media on the formation of the opinions of the public and it has been documented in the research. The more emphasis has been paid on the content of the news and issues of biased reporting (Dwyer, Martin, and Goggin, 2011). The media of entertainment that has the largest impact on the formation of the opinions of the public was given less attention. There are various methods of research available to psychology and sociology that are not sufficient to the task of investigating the multiple covariances which impact the formation of the opinions of the public, as recognized by the early researchers (Dwyer, Martin, and Goggin, 2011). However, given advances in research methods why has the effect of pervasive, persistent mass media not been the focus of more research attention? One possible reason is that the effect is one of those ‘known known’ that various bodies in control of funding research are wary of having to prove, since, if a causal link can be established between media and behavioral modification, then the issue of responsibility comes into play. The defense that it should be ignored as a misdirects that the media is imperfect. It totally depends upon the scope of the budget that what are the sources available that are available to the various media and how well those facts are aired (Dwyer, Martin, and Goggin, 2011). To paraphrase the motto of the Swiss News Agency: “It is better to second with the truth rather than first with the lie.”

The indirect, or covert impact of media saturation of public opinion formation is as real as that of the overt or direct messages; one only has to look at the increasing incidence of dysfunctional body-image in adults and children directly traceable to the ‘beauty industry’ and its advertising cohort (Dwyer, Martin, and Goggin, 2011). The backbone for the most of the melodramas, soap operas, and even crime procedural entertainment, is the trope of beauty being directly equitable with success as well. The reason why the individuals watch or interact with the escape media is that they have a belief that it is just for the sake of entertainment and it does not allow the message from being processed. In the popular media, there are more chances that the message or frames of reference which are more likely to be directly added to the subconscious; unlike the messages in news, which many watch with a degree of critical thought. The public not at all considers what they are watching (Dwyer, Martin, and Goggin, 2011).


Media plays an important role in the formation of the opinions of the public. The role of the media becomes very much understandable by news media and current affairs style programs and by some attentions, the effects have been received by the research community. The less attention has been received by the other forms of media which are more enveloping and determined but it has a greater impact on the public that helps in the creation of the norms and mores, which are the basis for the formation of the opinion of the public. Now media cannot be considered as just entertainment only (van Dijck, 2009).
