Final Post

I chose this FYOS course because I originally thought that it was going to be about news media and I thought it would be interesting to take during the election season. Although it was not what I expected, I was pleasantly surprised at what the class turned out to be. I really enjoyed going to class and listening to discussions because I learned a lot more about media as a whole and about how it is so prevalent in our everyday lives. Taking this course made me realize that I probably use media too much, but I also realized that there are pros and cons to that problem. Overall, I am really glad that I took this FYOS course and I learned a lot about a topic that I otherwise would not have had the opportunity to learn about.
