Media Literacy Discussion

To start off your internship at the Haveman Chronicle we’d like to get to know you better by hearing about times in your life when the mass media had a significant impact on your thoughts and/or behavior in a good or bad way.  For example, did you every watch a violent movie as a kid and then want to go out and play fight with your friends? Or have you ever watched a movie about an exotic location and thought, “I’d really like to go there some day.’?  Maybe you just watched a fast food commercial and though, “Man, I’m hungry.’ I remember one time I was watching one of the Fast and the Furious movies when I got a call from a family member that they were having a medical emergency and needed me to take them to the hospital right away.  Let’s just say my driving may have been modestly influenced by the behavior I’d just seen on TV. From the significant to the mundane, give us examples of times when the mass media has had a noticeable affect on your thoughts, actions, or beliefs.
