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.
