What media life is all about. Hailey Walleck

Don’t be like Truman.  Don’t live the majority of your life ignorant of media.  Be aware of media; how it works and how to use it for your benefit.  Also, don’t be like Truman and try to leave.  Media can be scary sometimes.  Everything we do on the internet is recorded, and it’s impossible to truly delete anything once we post it, but the benefits of media far outweigh the negatives.  We can connect to anyone anywhere.  We have instant access to knowledge and news.  We can work from anywhere.  Media has become a necessary part of our lives, to try and leave media life would be almost impossible.  It is okay to be wary of media, but the best thing that we can do is to educate ourselves about media: to become aware of it and to know how to effectively use it.
