Disney is one of the many companies that own what is going in the media. From the paper that we got in class, Disney owns five magazine publishing companies, ABC television and radio, Disneyland, Disney books, along with much more. It makes me think about how much power these companies have over our perception on the media. We are influenced by what we watch, weather we decide to act on what we see is based on an individual basis. But these companies have the power to portray whatever they would like to. We give these companies so much power, whether they deserve it or not in controversial. The media effects us a ton, and i just think we need to be careful with how much we take in and how much we let influence us. After looking at this handout from class, it made me realize really how much is out there for us to consume. The world of media is growing and growing and its way exciting to see the technology grow. The media is a powerful tool and we need to realize the effect that it has on us as the consumers.
