Congratulations! karthik3393

Could you tell me how you improve your listening section?

Recently, I write one essay and post on Forum, even though I get some grammar correction, I am not sure whether the general idea is right. Could you have a look about it and what do you think? Thanks a lot!

#028: Television, newspapers, magazines, and other media pay too much attention to the personal lives of famous people such as public figures and celebrities. Use specific reasons and details to explain your opinion.

In the past, I agree that television, newspaper, magazines, and other media paid too much attention to the personal lives of famous people. One of the unforgotten stories is that media are considered to contribute to Princes Dianaís death. However, in recent years, media move their attention to other fields to satisfy the publicí interest.

First, people all over the world pay attention to war in Iraq. How about the residents in Iraq, when the war can be over, who will control the place past war, whether U.S.A. can be resisted by Arab, what impact the war will bring to the both America as well as the world, etc. These are some example questions that media pay more attention since it may influence peopleís life such as the price of oil, the major resource energy, and current prices of stocks. That CCTV-4 of China report relative news about the war almost 24 reflects how much attention media pay.

Second, heath issue is one of the serious topics among media attention. SARS, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, has already derived lives from almost one hundred people in a quite short period. Whether SARS will spread to more other countries beyond Asia, who is likely to be the next victim scare more people. After news reports that Hong Kong is one of the original places for SARS. Many patrons cancel their plans to Hong Kong. This piece of news makes economy of there be stricken badly while others may thank immediate news to save them.

Third, media also pay more attention to both domestic and external changing politic polices which affect people directly. For instance, in Thailand, the Primary Minister, Tangsin Qinawat, has punishes drug users and sellers seriously. What this fact bring change to people is reflected on media. More recently, he has proclaimed to regular corruption. Again, people are eager to find more information about details from newspaper or television since this is a long-standing and stiff problem in Thai history. In addition, Thai people also can gain other data such as what effect of Chinese leaderís change. For example, the change of product tax can influent most farmers to their exports.

From all the above, I can confirm that although media once paid much attention to celebrities, to focus on the breaking events in the world as well as to attract peopleís interest, media convert their attention to other serious topics.
