As students at Furman University enrolled in a course about Mass Communications, our group, consisting of Rob, Emily, Kennedy, Laura and Dina are here to blog about Media and Politics.

With the Presidential Election coming up, media dominates media conversation. This trending topic receives attention from multiple perspectives and we will follow it closely in the multiple events happening across the nation. We will do so by focusing on Media Effects and how they relate to politics across multiple platforms. Each member in our group will research a different media effect sub-topic.

Topics are assigned to inviduals:

Rob – Global Village                            Emily – Gatekeeping

Kennedy – Agenda Setting                Laura –  Desensitization

Dina-  Scary World Effect
