Magic Bullet Theory

Indeed the Magic Bullet Theory is a synonym for the Hypodermic Needle Theory. This was an early model of mass communication. it suggested that an intended message is directly received and wholly accepted by the receiver. Receivers of the mass media messages were assumed to be reacting predictably and uniformly controlled by their biologically based instincts to whatever stimuli came along.
The "Magic Bullet" is a (communication management) metaphor for this process in which media messages are fired like a bullet from the "media gun" into the viewer's "head".
