hot button issue paper | BSCOM410 Media And Society | University of Phoenix


Technologies  evolve, but sex and violence have always been–and may  remain–hot-button issues in the media. The pace of new technological  change is so rapid that some people may no longer wait on formal media  to research and provide information for making personal decisions.

Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper that addresses the following:

  • A brief discussion of 20th century communication developments, milestones, and applications exemplifying changes in media portrayal of sex and violence.
  • Explain how the negative effects of sex and violence on children  have increased in media technology. Provide examples and cite at least  one contemporary news article.
  • Explain how the negative effects of sex and violence on adults have  increased in media technology. Provide examples and cite at least one  contemporary news article.
  • Make specific recommendations about how the problems of media portrayal of sex and violence might be minimized.
  • Examine how the immediacy of media involving sex and violence  affects your own interpersonal communication.  How is the development of  intimacy within interpersonal relationships related to the volume and  accessibility of media portrayals of sex and violence?
  • Consider the ethical and legal implications involved in the personal  use of social media and other technologies to access and share images  and videos.  Based on your own understanding and research of ethics,  what ethical principles are involved in the use of technology in  relation to images of sex and violence?  What ethical principles are  involved when posting or making accessible the personal images of  others?
  • What laws are in place because of photos or videos made accessible  without permission?  What recommendations based on your research of law  and ethics can you propose in relation to the accessibility and  proliferation of images of sex and violence?
  • Examine the home page or landing page of a mainstream online news  source that comes up on your screen upon login.  Examine the imagery  used on the entire page, including any advertisements.  Discuss the  diversity of the people portrayed.  How are women represented? How are  people of color represented?

Cite at least three different peer-reviewed outside sources, in addition to two contemporary news articles.
