Mass Media and the Culture of Democratic Government #6

February 16, 2011

In this prezi we review some of the characteristics of mass media.  We look at media as a powerful creative source that some argue creates democratic ideals.  We also examine mass media as a tool by which the populous communicates with government.  From this perspective mass media helps create an atmosphere fostering a responsive government.
