Darwadi MS

Abstract


New media is a term used to distinguish it with the old media. The lines between new media and
old media are difficult to determine with certainty because it depends on someone’s perspective. In
communication theory, education is set as some goals such as propaganda, journalism, public
relation etc. Education as a mean of activities of influencing, changing, and forming attitude and
behavior are based on truthful and useful values to human kind. Political education process as
process to get orientation behavior toward politics phenomenon through someone else becomes
part of process that determines someone’s political attitude, such as nationalism, social class,
ethnic group, ideology, right and obigation. At this moment, when our citizens get natural political
education, political party which is expected to be center of political education is really far from
this expectation. It is reasonable that from now on government can give better political education
in order to get qualified democracy.
