How does media affect society?

In the film Old School, college is portrayed as one big party. Will Ferrell’s character drinks too much and gets out of hand. Even though this is funny, it could give college students bad ideas. Sometimes when people watch things they confuse media with reality.

This is a group of college students that drank too much and decided it would be fun to wrestle. I am not saying that watching Old School gave them the idea to go party and get drunk, but because it is presented in a humorous way and doesn’t really show negative consequences, people might think it is ok to do the same.
