Lindsay Schwartz Mass Media and You 3/29/2018 Spotlight Extra Credit Reaction Paper Media and journalism are an evolving field that has benefitted our society in many ways.  Although some people believe that media is corrupting us, it also informs us with important  information we would not receive without it. For example, in the movie  Spotlight , we see the  hard work and effort that is put in to creating a mass media story. In the movie, the Boston Globe is working with victims, churches, and lawyers to expose 90 priests who were child molesters  just in the city of Boston. This scandal would have never been exposed if it weren’t for the  media. Catholic people would still be praising these terrible people if it weren’t for the  journalists working for the Boston Globe.  Journalists play a very crucial role in being watchdogs in order to maintain our  democracy. A democracy is a form of government where citizens exercise power directly or by  electing representatives to form a governing body. It is important for the citizens to stay

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
