1 QUESTIONS FOR JANUARY 20 th Write this in your notebook, please. WHAT IS MEDIA? WHAT IS THE ROLE OF MEDIA IN OUR LIVES?

2 “Media. I think I have heard of her. Isn't she the one who killed her children?” -Neil Gaiman, American GodsNeil Gaiman, American Gods Gaiman is an English writer who is known for his DC Comic series, The Sandman, and his Newbury Medal winning book The Graveyard Book.

3 “The bias of the mainstream media is toward sensationalism, conflict, and laziness.” ― Jon StewartJon Stewart

4 “The news isn't there to tell you what happened. It's there to tell you what it wants you to hear or what it thinks you want to hear.” -Joss Whedon, Astonishing X-Men, Vol. 2: DangerousJoss Whedon, Astonishing X-Men, Vol. 2: Dangerous Whedon Is an American screenwriter who is known for the creation of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and for co-writing Toy Story.

5 “The media are desperately afraid of being accused of bias. And that's partly because there's a whole machine out there, an organized attempt to accuse them of bias whenever they say anything that the Right doesn't like. So rather than really try to report things objectively, they settle for being even-handed, which is not the same thing. One of my lines in a column—in which a number of people thought I was insulting them personally—was that if Bush said the Earth was flat, the mainstream media would have stories with the headline: 'Shape of Earth—Views Differ.' Then they'd quote some Democrats saying that it was round.” ― Paul KrugmanPaul Krugman Krugman is an American economist and op-ed columnist for The New York Times.

6 DIVIDE YOUR NOTEBOOK (IF YOU HAVE ONE TODAY…) INTO TWO CATEGORIES: 1) QUESTIONS AND CLASS NOTES 2) PRODUCTS

7 “The media insists on taking what someone didn't mean to say as being far closer to the truth than what they did.” ― Alain de BottonAlain de Botton de Botton is a Swiss writer and philosopher who published the bestseller Status Anxiety in 2004.

8 “The newspaper journalists like to believe the worst; they can sell more papers that way, as one of them told me himself; for even upstanding and respectable people dearly love to read ill of others.” ― Margaret Atwood, Alias GraceMargaret Atwood, Alias Grace Atwood is a Canadian novelist and enviornmental activist who published the acclaimed The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985.

9 “I don’t talk about my personal life so they [the media] had to make one up for me.” ― Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift

10 “To your request of my opinion of the manner in which a newspaper should be conducted, so as to be most useful, I should answer, ‘by restraining it to true facts & sound principles only.’ Yet I fear such a paper would find few subscribers. It is a melancholy truth, that a suppression of the press could not more compleatly deprive the nation of its benefits, than is done by its abandoned prostitution to falsehood. Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. —Letter to John Norvell, 14 June 1807 Thomas Jefferson, Works of Thomas Jefferson. Including The Jefferson Bible, Autobiography and The Writings of Thomas Jefferson (Illustrated), with Notes on Virginia, Parliamentary... more.
