Abstract

This article examines the impact of the media on audiences and society from two perspectives. The traditional approach examines how different media outlets (e.g., newspapers, radio, and television) impact on how audiences perceive the information contained in the outlet or how the audiences use a particular outlet through the media. The contemporary approach examines how the media are used by others to change attitudes and beliefs. Both traditional and contemporary approaches to media effects help to better understand how the media - and those who use it - influence people and society.
