As mass communications have changed throughout the years (we started with the printing press and now we are in a digital age, where newspapers can be read via tablets or online. We see a huge change in how we receive information through mass communications. One example from the text is how newscasters, such as John Oliver delivers the news to the audiences. He puts refreshing spin on it; instead of straightforward news, he almost, in a way makes fun of some of the news and puts a creative way to entertain audience members.
I have watched a few of his videos and even laughed at a few of the comments he makes. I think this is a great way for the audience to absorbed the (sometimes harsh) news and be entertained at the same time.
