Welcome to the Haveman Chronicle. For this first week on the job I’d like you to create a discussion post where you talk about how the mass media has affected your thoughts and/or actions in the past. For example, it used to be that every time I watched Extreme Makeover: Home Edition I would be very dissatisfied with my house afterward. Talk about a time when you’ve somehow felt changed, for better or worse, by an experience with the mass media. This week create your own discussion post. For future discussions, just respond to the discussion post I’ve created. Don’t forget to select “Conference Room” from the list of categories on the right so your posts end up in the right place.
