Mass Communication

    When you see mass media and communication written down on paper it basically hits the nail on the head.  Our whole world and culture is connected through the media and mass communication. Since before I was born technology and media have been around and I cant picture a world without it, but of course I find it all to be a good thing, because with out the media our world would not be able to know what was going so quickly and with such efficiency.

    The culture skycrapper is basically a diagram of pieces of work that are concidered high culture and low culture.  After examining the sky scraper I felt like a hill billy, because almost all my favorite shows are concidered low culture, except for CNN, and that wasn't even that high up there.  I guess the works in high culture are things you have to be born into for instist ballet and hamlet, becasue I know noone that is interest in Hamlet.  All in all I think that maybe they should give certain shows a chance to be high culture like Lady Gaga orWheel of fortune.

    The critical process of media of interesting, but I also found it confusing.  I had no idea there was a process like this, but it makes some sense, because I mean someone has to decide what is good, bad, or mediocre media.  I don't know if I would be able to do that, because I would take favor over certain shows and such. If it was up to me Lady Gaga would be at the top of the sky scraper. =]
