Media System

It has never been easier to influence public opinion. E-petitions and flash mobs are just two examples of web-based forms of free expression. It is now possible for bloggers to reach the world from deep within totalitarian states, influencing media coverage in established newsrooms. How are established media and new media changing with regards to credibility, content, and influence, both locally and internationally? YouTube instead of TV? Sensationalism in place of Investigative reporting? Our seminars combine the analysis of interests, influences, and power of the media with our own media productions.
