* Discuss your own thoughts on how the media sells the product of entertainment.
* Cite specific examples that you have observed from at least 2 of the following formats:
* In your primary post, address a few techniques that you observed from each medium about how they sell entertainment.
* Make note of psychological tactics such as color, images, gender, or other techniques that you observed that could be bridged to psychology. For example, you may discuss how the media uses a gender stereotype along with feminine colors to sell the fantasy of falling in love in a romantic comedy.
