With traditional media advertisements have to find a way to grab consumer’s attention, whereas with new media advertisements already have your attention. Traditional media has to find different tricks to help keep consumers attention and not change the channel. As Brain Williams writes in "Enough about you", depending on the type of show, television was made to “already agree with your views.”(473).
Further I would like to know the co-operative advertising that she intends doing.

According to (Williamson 1978), “people are made to identify themselves with what they consume”. Hence, fashion can be considered a segment of what we ingest to create ourselves.

In the widest sense the first If we stick with the definition that popular music has wide appeal and mass distribution, then the history really begins with the publication of sheet music — this makes pop music another media form that owes its origins to Gutenberg's printing press. Printed sheet music allowed individuals who were not the original composer of a song (or a musician lucky enough to be given a hand-copied version of the original score) to take away the music, and perform it to the audience of their choice. Songs could cross from city to city, country to country, enjoyed and played by large numbers of people at the same time.
They attempt to persuade readers to buy a product/viewpoint using the same kinds of appeals authors use when constructing a written argument.

What is the message and how is that message coming across?
However I would take to extend this argument by adding to Gitlin's list my own which would comprise of how America is passing on a culture based on amusement and simplicity. In my next area I shall focus on what influences the American media does to local cultures and how it shapes and reshapes other cultures regional identities. While discussing American entertainment, I shall dwell particularly on what Gitlin suggests, which is its appeal to the Freudian “id” instead of the “superego” and why it begins from the bottom up. My next area revolves around the tremendous influence that the American usage has generated to the rest of the world. I will try to show how this is relevant, according to Gitlin, to America’s triumphant capitalistic culture that has been and continues to be built on advertising, slogans, headlines, comic strips, TV and radio.
