Media Madness

Class work today focused on analysis of print ads in magazines looking specifically at how the images of men, women, and families are portrayed.  What message does that send to a) consumers and b) society at large?  Who has the power - the product companies or the consumer?

Don't forget, essays due on Oct 6.


  1. I believe that the consumers hold the power because they are the ones who are funding the product companies, by Weston Tomczak.

  2. The consumer holds the power because they are the ones buying the items, therefore they can make or break a company.

  3. The consumers have the power, the ads are fitted to the preferences of the consumer.
