    The mass media can have an incredible effect on those people out there who just don't get it.

    While getting my advertising degree, I had a professor tell stories of misdirected outcomes of ads that were put on TV. Even little innocuous announcements like, "We'll have the Bears game right here on Sunday at noon."

    Well, some guy showed up at the downtown Springfield television station with his Bears beanie, bench cushion, and ice chest ready to see a football game. It had to be explained to this guy that the Bears game was actually taking place in Chicago at Soldier Field.

    These situations are easily extrapolated to people who can be dangerous when told things meant to project fear.
