Phantom of the Opera the change of the people

“Phantom of the Opera “
Public Opinion:” the manufacture of consent” Walter Lippmann discussed the works on the Public. The actual Public had changed from time to time due to the different types of ideas and things that people heard about throughout their life time. The different aspects of life were told to us before we would actually see things.

“For the most part we do not first see, and then define, we define first and then we see. Walter Lippmann stated this in Public Opinion/ The Phantom Public Ch22. As children we are even told stories that we believe that we never got the chance to actually see. The stories that world was flat, then finding out by someone sailing around the world that it could never be flat.

Hearing was believing. We began to take on the nature that because words were said to us that basically meant that it was true and that is the way we should live. But In today’s society everything has changed due to the different types of media. It is the reason that some people base their life to the different conveying ideas because of what they see, because they are told and go off of just that.

Public opinion was changed due to the different ideas that others had in their head and due to the technology this made it even worse for the public. Ideas and aspects of life were all changed.

You are discussing some very complex material here and I am not sure that you are getting your point across. Choose a short quotation that raises one key point and then discuss its significance.
