I chose “The medium is the message. The medium is the mess age. The medium is the massage. The medium is the mass age.”
I’ve been thinking about this for a few days and I have had an epiphany. I believe that different mediums are used to portray different messages. I think the most important of all mediums is the radio (sound). Because in scary movies, if you were to watch them without sound, they would be a lot less scary, so that sound and music add to the fear factor…for example. In turn, video is a very important tool in media because it sort of allows more of a story to be told and you have something to go along with the sound. I agree with McLuhan and I believe that different media are used for different messages or the intensity of messages to be put out there to the public.
This relates to media studies simply because messages are powerfully demonstrated with different forms of media. Whether it be the radio, television or even just the newspaper.
