As our blog is coming to an end, I want to highlight a more general understanding of the media and the power that it has to promote positivity or negative, or to have a negative or positive affect. I hope that by looking at my blog post everyone has gotten a better understanding of the different areas that media can effect and have strong influence upon. However, although the media is very powerful, we ultimately have the power to influence what the media portrays. The different areas of the media portray what they believe what the consumer wants see. Therefore, we have the power. As a society, we must acknowledge our responsibility to hold the media accountable and ensure that it is educating the public in an effective way.
