Open Access Graduate Research Paper


The media are the mode. They are the great facilitators in American life. Without media children would not be able to visit the moon, experience the birth of a tornado, or take part in the real life drama of Cortez or Pocahontas -- all in one day. Whether media are used at school or in the home they have a great impact on the way Americans spend their time and the information they receive.
