The flaw in Ehrenreich’s argument about the eeriness in the lack of real life scenarios on television is that television was crafted for people to escape their reality. The example of a person watching another person watching television on a tv show is fatuous. In reality the stunts that are portrayed in those shows can not be done, but seeing them be performed on tv allows for individuals to release the urges to replicate them in real life. The plots of the stories serve as a form of art that is reflected onto tv and can be interpreted an unlimited amount of ways .

Technology, the media and institutional power may influence the future directions for Rock and Roll within the next 5 to 10 years. In the 1950s, rock and roll sound and style had challenged cultural authority. The rock music of the 1960s often challenged political authority directly and unambiguously.

From newspapers and radios to televisions and social networks, the various forms of media have provided the public with more knowledge and accessibility to information and connectivity to others than ever before. There are an abundance of ways to obtain free flowing information that ultimately can be beneficial to our daily lives. Though many positive attributes exist in the media, there are inevitably negatives as well. In the context of Anglo-America, domination could not be possible without the assistance of media which “strives to expand its hegemony while fending off challenges and interventions from the very classes and groups it seeks to subjugate," (Split Image, African Americans in the Mass Media).

Sociology wants you to look at why we do certain things in life. It wants you to challenge the way society affects you. In media, sociology focuses on the way in which media impacts mass audiences. The mass media plays a very important role in the transformation of societies from traditional to modern and from modern to postmodern (Devereux, 2003: 9). The media plays a key role in upholding and influencing social relations.

Mediums of mass media covers a wide variety like newspapers, television, books, films, fashion trends even politics.
Uses & Gratifications and the Reality Television context. Blumler and Katz’s ‘Uses and Gratification theory’ (1974) suggests that media users play an active role in choosing and using the media. This theory shifted the focus from what media do to the people to what people do with the media, thus it’s an audience centric theory. It examines the nature of audience involvement and gratification obtained from viewing the television.
We live in a postmodern age where technology play a huge role in our daily lives and influences the way we look at and experience the world. The more computer technology grows the more we question our world and what is ‘real’ and what is not? Is something a ‘reality’ or a simulacrum?

When does an image or an object have cult value and when does it have exhibition value?
