Episode Details

This program delves into the functions media perform in culture and in the lives of individuals. Mass media are pervasive in modern life. Mass media are obviously intended to provide news and entertainment, but they also deliver particular interpretations and influence what people think about. In addition to receiving information, people use mass communication to help shape their value systems and their sense of a shared cultural identity.
