Need help with research for English essay - September 30th 2010, 11:04 PM

Hey guys. I'm doing an essay for English class (due tomorrow) on the negative effects of media on youth. I've been looking for certain things on and off for the past several days and I'm not coming up with anything.

I need:
- 1 specific pieces of media that promote negative stereotype(s)
- 2 specific pieces of media that appear to be specifically targeted at teenagers and encouraging them to do destructive/unhealthy behaviors (alcohol, tobacco, fast food, etc.)
- 1 specific piece of media that sends the message (or discusses the sending of the message) that you have to be a certain way to be 'normal' or that if you ARE a certain way it's not okay (such as: it's not okay to be homosexual, it's not okay to like certain music, etc.)

Does anybody have suggestions for any of these things or how I can find them? I've tried Youtube and newspapers.

You can always contact me to talk about anything!
Proud to be myself.

Need a hug? Please take one!
