Topic: Many people believe that media coverage of celebrities is having a negative effect on children. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion.

The twentieth-first century has witnessed a dramatic increase in media. Today we can hardly fine a place across the world where people do not have access to television, radio or newspapers which include much information about famous people. It is disputable that it has brought a negative effect on children in behaviors or lifestyles. From my point of view, celebrities’ news has both advantages and disadvantages, but the pros side is stronger. There are two reasons for my perspective on this. Firstly, one point is that celebrities are an idol of many people. They have bright career, earn much of money and public know who they are. For example, you are a film star, what makes up you to be well-known? It is your talent, your effort and your action. Celebrities make greatest efforts to show their own abilities to shine in our life. Thus, by having an idol early in their lives, children can determine their road and follow their idol to success in life. Another important point is that famous people are the motivation for children. It is not difficult find any information about celebrities, no matter how their personal life or their activities and images have been posted in media. Children can learn experiences from the way they deal with their life under any circumstances. Although much information, announced by the press, is not exact at all, some celebrities still control and keep their images in the eyes of us. These skills are needed skills for everybody. After analyzing both points of view, in my position I tend to think that the media coverage of celebrities is not capable of making children in negative side. It depends on the type of news and viewers so the press should select their information carefully.
