Does modern media lead or manipulate war and society?

I have an essay I have to write, so I really need three points. Essentially, how does media impact or manipulate war and society? I'm mainly focusing on how it manipulates war and society. I want to focus on each time period, so the French Revolution, World War 2 and War on Iraq/War on Terror. Thank you ! :)

    well it could. it has the potential then there is mtv . if you pound an idea down people throats it starts to sink in, like commercials. there war cry is go out and buy ! now! so if you change that to be a good human being full of ideas and morels the yeah they could lead society. or rather they do but in wrong ways! in war they leave the gory details out like why when where but they need to for feautre operations! that and the world would hate U.S but people need to understand war is grim to say the least. and even if the war is a war of vengeance then it is still unjust, unfair,unforgiving and an admittance to ultimant failure!

    Media has be used to manipulate the way people think and act for a very long time. Most try to manipulate us to change how we think about things or subjects (Known as propaganda). When you watch a TV advertisement don’t they make the item or service seem magnificent and that all others are subordinates to it? Good examples of media changing Society is how Adolf Hitler used propaganda films to make the jews seem sub-human, to the perfect housewife of the 1950′s ( Leave It To Beaver, I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, Bewitched, Etc) made on posters and in movies that all women tried to be. The media has almost always had the power to both lead us and manipulate us into doing, saying, and believing whatever it wants us to.
