Media and technology construct “culture” by exoticism. National Geographic showcases unique cultures and makes them appear “primitive, unintelligent, and animalistic” (Ott & Mack, 2020), thus affirming that non-whites are inferior to civilized white people. #COMS3320

Media constructs culture through class, race and gender. A big implication from this is exclusion. If the media was accurate, there would be a clear ratio between the size of a racial population in real life and its visible population in media. (Ott and Mack, 2020) #COMS3320

Texts and symbols play a key role in all forms of social media. Brands use these rhetoric structures to captivate a broad or even specific audience towards their product. This approach is very beneficial for multimedia companies (Otto& Mack, 2020) #COMS3320

Due to the fact that symbols are learned through a sense of emotion different symbols can mean different things to certain people. Although, universal symbols are mostly used to create a source of entertainment and interest from the audience. (Ott and Mack,2020) #COMS3320

Texts & symbols can be found in clusters from key signs through repetition, intensity, or prominence (Ott & Mack, 2020). From repetition, anchorage leads the audience to a set idea as Barthes described connotations vary greatly and "meanings are never final or closed" #COMS3320

The media uses texts and symbols to grab the audience's attention. Symbols are used to create meaning and emotion towards a certain subject, and they are learned through the audience by the media (Ott & Mack, 2020). #COMS3320

Text and symbols surround us on an everyday basis, influencing our lives through various meanings. These symbols can be generated through different languages and still hold the same meaning. For example bathroom signs with symbols for men and women.(Ott and mack, 2020)#COMS3320

Media messages convey meanings, (Ott&Mack, 2020). Rhetoric in short words is the art of persuading using symbols. The chapter also talks about signs, it’s something that invites viewers to think of anything other than themselves, so therefore nearly anything is a sign. #COMS3320

Texts and symbols have different meanings. For example different companies have different logos that represent their brand (twitter symbol is a bird and people all around the world recognize it). (Ott & Mack, 2020) #COMS3320

Texts and symbols are used to bring joy and entertainment for that said audience. It would be terribly hard to grasp anyone’s attention through media without bringing some sort of joy. #COMS3320

Texts and symbols are used to catch the attention of an audience and give them a direct feeling or concept to relate it back to. An example of this would be seeing this emoji 😊 and relating it to joy. (Ott& Mack,2020) #COMS3320

The media can conjure a symbolic sign indicative of various social trends. Because of the meaning bestowed upon them by media, symbols are learned and not by our own instinctual understanding. (Ott&Mack,2020) #COMS3320

Symbols and texts are often used in the media to create meaning and arouse their selected audience. The Nike symbol and motto “just do it” can resonate with many who believe in it. ( Otto & Mack 2020) #COMS3320

Text and symbols are constantly used to captivate various audiences attention. Symbols allow creators to represent something, such as a heart is used to represent love. Different rhetoric structures are used to represent different things. (Ott & Mack, 2020) #COMS3320

Through media, symbols create meaning to an audience by expressing emotions that could function in more than one way. Symbolic signs are learned rather than intuited. This means you can't just use your instincts to determine the meaning of a symbol. (Ott & Mack, 2020)#COMS3320

Texts and symbols in language are used to ascribe meaning to signs. The media can create or add meaning rather quickly even changing long-standing trends. (Ott &Mack, 2020) #COMS3320

The media uses sex appeal as a symbol to appeal to their audience. Old Spice uses the line "you wish your man could smell this good" to try and get men to buy it to get a lady or for women to buy it for their men because they want him to smell "sexy". (Ott & Mack, 2020)#COMS3320
