The paper examines the complex relationship between society, advertisers, and the media. The paper discusses how, while consumers drive mass media and advertisers, they are also shaped and driven by mass media. Furthermore, the blurring of entertainment media, news media, and advertisements has made the relationship even more complex. The paper concludes that modern communication has become increasingly more uniform, resulting in the marginalization of groups outside of the targeted demographic, which has become the new representation of normal.
From the Paper:"In order to understand the interrelationship between the media and society, it is important to have a total understanding of what organizations form what is referred to as the mass media. Media refers to "those organized means of dissemination of fact, opinion, entertainment, and other information, such as newspapers, magazines, cinema films, radio, television, the World Wide Web, billboards, books, CDs, DVDs, videocassettes, computer games and other forms of publishing." (Mass Media 2006)."
