That's crazy. Are you suggesting that "art imitating life" argument that says that the media, e.g., the music industry, movies, TV, is merely protraying what is going on in the larger society?

If anything, in my view, the media is telling people, particularly males, how they should be acting to get money, get the girl, etc.


I'm not sure this is what the OP was talking about. Now that he/she has edited the post so I can't see it, I'm not sure. But it seems to me she's limiting her focus to the news media, instead of other media. She says:

It doesn't sound like she's talking about music & videos. Which, to me, doesn't make much sense. If anything, her focus should be on pop culture, especially hip hop videos and CDs.
