Communication Accommodation Theory refers to the communication exchange depending on intercultural exchange. In other words you change it up depending on who you speak with. It could be the person from Russia or Brooklyn New York. It could be the person coming from the hood versus the suburbs. Our Media teaches us a lot about how we practice these social exchanges with each other especially of those who don’t share our same culture.
Media has the ultimate power to represent so many things, in so many ways, to so many people at lighting speeds. An ability such as this has the authority to say whatever it wants, whenever it wants, to whomever it wants and its always heard but is it always telling the truth? Does it even care about the truth. What about the American people? Does it represent the many communities that make America, AMERICA? Does it provide accurate acknowledgement, recognition and contributions of all Americans or does it just say what it wants?
And where is the History of us all?!? History is defined as the record of past events and times, especially in connection with human kind. Imperative times that makes the present what it is today no matter how big or small. In America our historical monuments are tremendously diverse and needs to be broadcasted in such a way that without us there would be no you and without you there will be no us. History is a book and we all write the pages in it.
But all of this, the media and publications are all connected to politics. Politics can be an uncomfortable subject for many! It can stir up an array of emotions for which many would rather stay far from. Usually, when asked any reasons or justification for doing so they may come up with 101 different answers but rarely state fear for being the motive. Why is that? What good does that serve? Does it even make sense to do good when it comes to politics? There are answers to these questions and its important to hear them.
