Media Moment, "The Guardian"

Please watch. It is only 30 seconds. The Guardian

I was watching a video on about how "women should represent women in media". At the end of the talk, the speaker Megan Kamerick showed this video to represent how we as consumers and absorbers of media, should see the whole picture of something and not just one perspective.

Perspective can often make or break a message. As New Yorkers, we have a tendency to glance at media images, covers of newspapers or magazines, and make our own assumptions based on that glance. Do you think the world would be better off if every single consumer gained a highly educated literacy for media and avoided manipulation? Is it beneficial that some people are easily manipulated by media producers?

  2. I don't know how better it would be if the world were to be educated in media, because media does play a prevalent role in the economy. As we all know humans are visually stimulated, so this can lead to what they see into what they want. But I do think that we as consumers should better understand what we are seeing and read in between the lines of what we are viewing. At time we see something in the media an take it as truth, especially young adults.
