First, take a minute to consider your own fault lines and your own privileges. (Review pages 11-16 of your textbook for a detailed explanation of these concepts.)
Then, for three days this week, keep a media diary. Make notes about the media you consume and the time you spend doing so. This doesn’t have to be an exact, minute-by-minute detailed record…but do keep track of the various articles, shows, movies, podcasts, etc., you watch, listen to, and read. Think about your media consumption in terms of fault lines and privilege — both from the creator’s perspective and the consumer’s perspective.
Finally, write a one- to two-page reflection. In what ways did you see fault lines and privilege at work? What have you learned from this exercise? What changes will you consider making with regard to your media consumption?

for our first discussion, I want you to deeply contemplate the concepts of fault lines and privilege. After you’ve read and watched all of this week’s assigned materials, find an example of a news article, advertisement, or public relations campaign that interests you. Does it meet the five criteria of excellence (EXCELLENCE = context + complexity + voices + authenticity + proportionality)? Share a link to your example with your group. Explain why you think that it does or does not meet the criteria. What could the media professional who created the piece have done differently? What did they do well? What can you learn from your analysis to inspire you in your own professional practice (current or future)?
