what is new media anyways?
new media includes:
blogs, social networking sites, personal websites, etc.
Different governments have different levels of control over what is posted on the Internet...
In the U.S. hate speech posted on the Internet is considered a federal crime and is punishable by law...
Even still the Internet is a place where people can publish their ideas to share with others...
new media encourages and spreads democracy because it causes a larger portion of the population to be involved
New media internationally educates about the problems in other countries and inspires change: especially in the Middle East today where young rebels are using sites such as Twitter and Facebook to spread opinions and awareness.
people use new media to organize and unite: it has even helped end unjust government reigns
like the news, new media has varrying accounts of different events
