【首段】背景介绍 + 立场说明
Perhaps nobody can avoid being swayed by various mass media. The news media have been exerting a tremendous influence on our lives because they can not only bring about glaring changes to the lives of ordinary people，but even ruin a political leader. Some people worry that the impacts of mass media are quite negative. From my perspective, however, what the news media can benefit us is greater than what they might influence us adversely.

Likewise, for the purpose of catering to the taste of the general public, some editors of newspapers and magazines also enjoy deliberately exaggerating so as to create a sensation. Surely enough, such irresponsible reportages should be highly condemned. However, we have no reason to throw out the baby with bath water.
On no account can we underestimate the positive influences brought about by the news media. First, the mass media can play the role of educator. As for those who lack the habit of reading news, they are rather restricted in terms of general knowledge and the experience of the world. Conversely, reading news frequently can help us have a broader view of life and thus train our dialectical mode of thinking.
Also, various mews media can be an indispensable source of information for the vast majority of people.

I myself enjoy appreciate stories concerning the common people or mediocre life so that I could greatly deepen my insight into diverse lifestyles and grow spiritually during the process of thinking.
In closing, my stand is that various news media have and will have irreplaceable roles to play in our daily lives, the influence， to large extent， depends on how we treat and harness them. It is rather groundless to simply say that their impacts can always be baneful
