If one agrees that consciousness of the culture of peace and non-violence is key to the future, then the mass media has the potential to play a key role in developing a culture of peace and non-violence.

Unfortunately, the mass media has not lived up to its potential. To the contrary. It has almost completely ignored the culture of peace and non-violence. This is the conclusion of many of the organizations who have contributed the Civil Society Report to the United Nations who have listed the mass media “blackout” as one of the chief obstacles to their work. Not only does the media ignore the culture of peace, but also they privilege news of the culture of war and violence.

By definition mass communication is a message created by a person or a group of people sent through a transmitting device (a medium) to a large audience or market.

Mass media is any medium used to transmit mass communication. Until recently mass media was clearly defined and was comprised of the eight mass media industries; Books, Newspapers, Magazines, and Recordings, Radio. Movies, Television and The Internet.

Defining mass media is no longer clear cut or simple. The continuing explosion of digital communication technology is producing more than a little confusion on the subject.

Developing new technology breeds new questions. Should cell phones be included in a definition of mass media? What about video and computer games? Is “World of Warcraft” a mass medium strictly speaking?

Considerable debate surrounds this topic at the moment and the answer is still not entirely clear.

After the end of the last bewitching TV season, the most successful entertainment show went to travel throughout Ukraine. Fourteen cites and hundreds of people who find courage to sing in public these are the outcomes of the summer voyage of Igor Kondratyuk and Co. In the new season, our favourite programme for those, who have vocal abilities and those who don’t, is looking at the changes that are currently known only to the author and the host of the show. But It la already I clear that the viewer’s satisfaction and realization that they are better singers then those on the show will stay unchanged. As always the country’s main microphone will be surrounded by Crowds, since it is a well-known fact in Ukraine that those who don’t dance they sing.
