How do researchers study the effects of the media on audiences? How do they determine what kinds of media content are most common? There are a variety of answers to these questions, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.

It’s almost time for our first exam, too, which is on Tuesday, Sept. 25. Here’s your study guide. Let me know if you have questions.
