The Evolution of Mass Communication

On Thursday in my mass communications class, we watch a very informative video. The video explained how mass communication had improved over the last five hundred years. I found that there were many interesting facts about mass communication that I had never known about. For example, I always assumed that the papers from the printing press focused on politics and current historical events. I never knew that many of the papers printed focused on business. Another interesting fact is that there were soap operas on radio. I thought that that was fascinating that shows that are now on television started on the radio. The final interesting fact from the video was that there were four major television stations when television first became popular. I always thought that it was only NBC, CBS, and ABC. I didn’t know that FOX was created not long after the other three. I also did not know that the competition between the television stations began so early. I learn a lot from watching this video.
