Are you wearing purple? Some of my speech classes have already talked about the issues of cyber-bullying, and I know it’s been brought up in our class as well. No matter your views, the bullying, which has been resulting in young adults taking their lives, needs to stop.

    Issues 3&4:

    1) Do people interpret a neutral/unbiased portrayal how they want? Is this interpretation based on personal experience, secondhand experience, or what the media has told them in the past?
    2) Does the media create wants in people that weren’t there to begin with? Does the media create idealism?
    3) Do we, as a society, need to long for something? Will we ever be content with who we are and what we have?

    Issues 16&18:

    1) How many choices do we need to have in order to feel like we have the freedom to chose?
    2) How do we know what we should really be informed about? Should every bit of information that’s ever happened be documented and available to the public?
    3) How important is privacy in this new age?
