DISCUSSING MEDIA Warm up: Discuss and respond: ‘Mass Media’ is a means of communication which reaches larger numbers of people. In today’s world we have the television, the
42 radio, the newspaper, magazine or journal, and the Internet which we refer to as the ‘media’. 1. Do you read the newspaper everyday? Do you listen to the news on Radio? Do you watch the news programme on television? Which do you find most informative? 2. Do you go to the newspaper/radio for the news only? 3. What programme do you enjoy the most on radio? 4. Which column of the newspaper do you read first? The following is a conversation between two school boys: Rajesh : Why are you worried about your project? Switch on to Discovery Channel or Animal Planet. You’ll get enough information through the various documentaries on wild animals. Don’t you read the newspaper everyday?

And then, there’s my younger sister and brother who quarrel over the remote control and keep switching channels. While one wants Cartoon Network the other wants a sponsored serial. I get to watch TV only when they’re showing a good film or music programme. That’s when there’s a unanimous choice in the family. I do listen to radio programmes often. I can receive broadcasts from all over the world on my radio and I can pick up many interesting stations on the short wave. Even the radio comes in for tug-of-war between my brother and sister, especially when the FM radio is broadcasting ‘Listener’s choice’ anchored by their favourite radio jockeys. Prasad : Then how is it you know so much about TV programmes? Rajesh :
