Why take a class about activism and media? Becuase during a time where government programs are trying to be silenced, the people need to do what others can not. People can not be ‘silenced’ perse. Also, we are just after an election where both major parties and both partisan media outlets are guilty of extreme bias and neglect. People need to walk away from reporters who work for rich CEOs, who own many different companies within the news realm. Although we have seen the rise of fake news, who is better to ask the questions the people want, some dissociated press or concerned citizens and voters. Other than needing to refine my own activism, which highly uses media outlets, and writing style. I took a plethora of other English courses and this one also seemed quite interesting.
