Dear Student,

Hi and thank you for using BrainMass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being asked to provide an example of a personal experience in relation to media bias. There are quite a number of examples that you can use - simply anything wherein you were swayed to an opinion by virtue of the media bias. I suggest using this simple outline:

1. The media bias/article - 100 words
2. Polarisation - 100 words
3. Impact of Media Leaders - 100 words

This outline should yield 300 words which should cover what you need. All the best with your studies.

Additionally, I have always been wary of dictatorships and autocracies, especially because of the way that the Arab Spring has changed the face of the Middle East - governments in former dictatorships do not last long enough ...

Solution Summary
