As we read the article about media literacy, we could learn many concepts that refer to analyze the media messages; also we could see the break-down learning steps to be a media literate. I believe that being a media literate is one of the media consumers responsibilities because the messages from the media is powerful and it is very useful and convenient only if we are being active media consumers. For examples, most of the advertisements are biased in a way that they are trying to promote the products. By using techniques of language persuasion, they are trying to get our attentions and using biased language and images. As media consumers, we cannot be fooled by every message in the media. We have to be skeptical and have critical thinking to make the decision. In order for us to make a right decision, being a media literate is a first step to begin with and have better consumptions from the media. The reading "Introductions to Media Literacy" helps me a lot to analyze and organize the message from the medium. We engage in the media all the time in our lives, and we take their messages for granted. But I feel that we have to be more careful and more focused about how they convey the messages. Even if we look at the basic concepts, we can see that how the media influence us in a lot of way and how they are trying to target us by using many techniques. It was interesting to see that I still have a lot to study and pay more attention to the media.
