Does media reflect society or shape it? Consider at least three different mediums: web, tv, newspaper, movies, radio. This is not about the technology, so ignore smart phones, email, PDA’s, and the like. Focus on messages we get everyday in ads, stories, movies, tv programs, and on radio such as talk shows. You MUST discuss this in terms of the THREE markets and focus on the audiences role in reflecting society to in allowing media to shape society.
