How Does the Media Influence Your Actions

Recount an action you have taken that directly results from messages you encountered in the media.

You can recount an action from a movie, a series, advertising, a newscast, or a social media post. Describe the media content or message that motivated you to act. Critique that action using media literacy. Who controlled or produced the media content that influenced you? What was the agenda behind that content? Would you do the same again, now that you have thought about the agenda of the media source that inspired your action?
