Media vs the real world

What will I learn?

Every job involves communication - how does the media actually work in marketing, business, education, entertainment, and news? How do different people use the media? Do you have a shared understanding of the world with others? How does misinformation and disinformation work, and how do we know what'sa real? How does the Media show us the world, and what does a journalist actually do?
