Philosophy students gathered in Comal to discuss the changes in the media and how it affects the world around us.

Lucy Garcia lead the group discussion with the assistance of Dr. Rebecca Raphael of the philosophy department. The discussions ranged from concerns about media companies being owned by only a handful of corporations to how producers connect to the audiences of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

Everyone in the room agreed that news outlets such as Fox News and MSNBC express bias in their programs to attract a specific audience’s ideology.

Garcia would begin each conversation by asking a question for the students present, along with Dr. Raphael, to discuss and analyze changes in the media.
