Kristin J. Anderson and Donna Cavallaro report results of a survey of 179 children, ages 8 to 13, investigating the influence of media on choice of heroes and role models that influence identity.

3. Media Violence and the American Public: Scientific Facts Versus Media Misinformation, Brad J. Bushman and Craig A. Anderson, American Psychologist, June/July 2001
Over the past 50 years, news reports of the link between media violence and aggression have changed from claims of a weak link to a moderate link and back to a weak link. In this article, two Iowa State University researchers analyze statistical findings of scientific studies, and they conclude that the link, which has strengthened over time, is clearly a positive one.

4. The Whipping Boy, Jib Fowles, Reason, March 2001
Jib Fowles argues that the belief that television violence causes hostile behavior is “a whipping boy, a stand-in for other clashes, real or imagined.” He sums up social conflicts that add to misdirected anti-television violence crusades.

8. The Triumph of the Image, Richard C. Wald, Columbia Journalism Review, November/December 2003

16. The Next Generation, Rachel Smolkin, American Journalism Review, April/May 2004

UNIT 3. Players and Guides
17. Do Media Monsters Devour Diversity?, Joshua Gamson and Pearl Latteier, Contexts, Summer 2004
Michael Powell began his term as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission with a push for relaxation of rules limiting media ownership, a proposal met with the largest outpouring of public response the Commission has ever experienced. This article examines scholarship on media ownership and content diversity, drawing conclusions in three areas: format diversity, demographic diversity, and idea diversity.

18. Tripping Up Big Media, Gal Beckerman, Columbia Journalism Review, November/December 2003

26. The Myth of ‘18 to 34', Jonathan Dee, New York Times Magazine, October 13, 2002

UNIT 5. The Shape of Things to Come

33. Low Power, High Intensity, Laurie Kelliher, Columbia Journalism Review, September/October 2003
Low power FM radio licenses were introduced by the FCC in 2000. Despite legislative challenges that have stalled expansion, 220 stations are on the air, run largely by volunteers dedicated to serving niche audiences.

34. The Myth of Interference, David Weinberger, Salon.com, March 12, 2003
Broadcast media are licensed and regulated because of “spectrum scarcity”—the need to divide broadcast frequencies into bands that don't overlap and interfere with reception. This article describes scarcity as a product of outdated transmission and reception technology, and proposes removing limits by reinventing our concept of frequency.

35. Your Next Computer, Brad Stone, Newsweek, June 7, 2004
