Abstract: My research concerns the media's effect on people within their own homes and whether or not this effect is detrimental. My review of the research literature shows that the media can instill a definite level of conformity in the general public but the research does not suggest that it is influential enough to cause large scale detrimental effects. People are more likely to be swayed in an emotional setting that is not present in news and other forms of information communicated through home devices such as the television and computer. I plan to conduct a survey to determine how much media influences the opinions of individuals on various issues. My hypothesis is that although most people often use media information, they still exercise rational judgment in forming their own conclusions.
