Dialogic Exchange and Civic Conversation

In your 400-word response, please follow the prompt below:

In your first paragraph, please give a general synthesis that unpacks David Croteau’s chapter “Media and Social Life.” This is a chapter that is a bit dated, but it contains some important historical and contextual information about the mass media that I want you to unpack a bit. Make sure you use close reading and quoted evidence.

In your second paragraph, choose a type of media platform and genre (website, blog, TikTok, twitter, Facebook), and discuss a specific example of how that platform illustrates a specific civic issue. Take time to analyze the platform and its rhetorical situation/ecology. In addition, state whether you feel the platform illustrates an effective communication for advocacy of this issue. Why or Why not?
