Hi Adam, Per our class discussion I have taken a look at this to provide feedback that could not be given when the system gave you troubles. I find your ideas of comparing mass to independent media types of interest and would enjoy an overview of that. Further, you hint that it can level the playing field for groups often “left out”, and expansion on that topic could be really interesting to explore with examples of where this is occurring. Your quotes focus on affiliations, mobs, and politics, so do you plan on taking it in that direction (would be interesting to me)? Lastly, I wonder how IL’s “no recording of police arrests, etc.” plays a role in further silencing the minority as mass media has historically done.
Hope this is helpful, Susan
