Myth of a Polarized America” by Morris P. Fiorina, Fiorina tries to give a position on the political polarization of an America. Fiorina introduces the message that the media and politicians give: the claim that America is divided is actually a myth. He blames the spreading of this myth on the politicians because they are the ones who are using it as political ammunition. Throughout the first chapter, Fiorina describes the rise and flow of the culture war idea. The culture war invades society from high-level politicians to every level of news media.
(p. 15) Despite these concerns, the American society still seems to be enslaved by the mass media practices, resulting in a culture exposed to highly selected information and subjected to various amounts of consumerist views. Referring to what Cooper examined, the concerns not only are transparent through diverse mediums but through the actual people that are conveying these messages. We need to take a look inside the minds controlled by these mediums. Communications Theories and Mass Media Consumption The first communications theory I will examine is cognitive dissonance. In order to understand the correlation between cognitive dissonance and media dependence, it is imperative to understand the concepts involved within cognitive dissonance.

That is, until the assassination of President JFK, himself. His death brought a widespread cloud of confusion to the nation. As people sought justice for this crime, many critical things were overlooked. The investigation of Kennedy’s assassination was riddled with mistakes made by all investigators and reporters involved; the true conclusion of the assassination will, therefore, likely never be known. The United States has feared Communism for a long period of time and continues to fear it as it encroaches upon American society ever so quickly.
