Interpretive strategies. A theory that explains the effects of media through the activity of the 
audience members is called the:
Active audience theory. The central distinction between popular culture and high culture 
the characteristics of the audiences associated with a given work or 
People paying 50 dollars per month to belong to an organized softball  league rather than playing informal games on their own is an example

An individual who serves as an example for others to strive toward and
emulate is:
a role model. Some people saw the 1999 film Fight Club as a call for men to be more 
traditionally masculine and seek out direct physical conflict. Others 
saw the movie as a critique of consumerism, while still others thought 
its main message was about the futility of violence. This illustrates the 
idea of polysemy. According to Roy Oldenburg, the decline of third places is directly

nature of media companies in the United States?
Apple’s main focus is on distributing, rather than producing, content. Ecotourism is characterized by the efforts of tourists and the travel 
industry to lessen the negative consequences of tourism on the 
environment as well as local cultures. In what way does the TV show The Simpsons illustrate the idea of 
The show can be "read" in multiple ways. For example, small children 
may miss allegories and critiques hidden in the show that adults might 
notice and interpret. What did Kerry Ferris find in her research on Star Trek and soap-opera 
fan clubs?
While the members did initially bond because of their common 
interest, eventually they did branch out and began to pursue things 
background image like community service projects. People who have taken footage of Star Trek episodes and created new 
stories out of it by splicing together different scenes are practicing:
Textual poaching. A law designed to prohibit monopolies in the mass media would be an 
example of:
Antitrust legislation. A political and moral philosophy focused on strengthening civil society 
and communal bonds more than addressing individual concerns is 
The term for groups of people who share similar artistic, literary, or  intellectual preferences is:
Taste publics.

Chap. 14 One major reason why more people don’t use "concierge medicine" is  likely that:
