Media Effects

media has many effects, a big effect is issue framing, in the study of Egypt I found an article in which it states “Under President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the military dominates governance as never before and has become increasingly rapacious. His regime is helping military companies to crowd out the private sector in the economy as well as diverting scarce government resources away from critical needs of the Egyptian people and towards arms purchases and vanity megaprojects.” (Dunne, Michelle, 2020)

This is an example of issue framing, it is framing the issue of allocation of resources to look a certain way, when in reality this is not exactly the case in Egypt. I have talked to several people who I know who are from Egypt and they have said that the president of Egypt has actually in fact been doing a good job in terms of allocation of resources while this is subjective and opinion based it is still a form of issue framing.
