Why I heart my media

I love (my) media because everything is possible with it. The fact that we are able to reach the whole world from our own bedroom is incredible! As Jim Morrison once said:

Whoever controls the media, controls the mind
– Jim Morrison

And the fun part is, we all control media nowadays: We decide ourselves what to post on social media and it gives us the voice to openly criticize the media that we do not seem to have full control over (but we actually do). The power of media is indescribable and the possibilities are endless.
