As I return from vacation, I figured I'd bring back this simple setup for your debating pleasure.
This Week's Prompt: Does the media have an adverse, or favorable, effect on Cinema as a whole?
Considerations: There's hardly any medium in modern times, with exception on non-media based internet, with as much influence on Cinema as the generic "media" (your basic news, gossip, and film shows/publications). They can build up a film, by using simple words like "greatest" or "popular," all the while attempting to reflect, or arguably set, the public mood towards a particular product. But, at the same time, they're often run by the very people who also finance many of the more mainstream films. Which may, or may not (depending on your point of view), give unfair advantage to big budget films in terms of public reach.
So, debate away!
