Effects of Media: Limited Effects
A Theory used when talking about Limited Effects in media: Audiences are stubborn and insulate themselves against contradictory messages.
I believe that an example from CNN News about 2 states legalizing pot, is a good example of Limited effects in media because it presents a pressing topic. Which has strong pro and con sides of the topic. In this article its headline reads.
2 states legalize pot, but don’t ‘break out the Cheetos’ yet
Now this shows that even though a state may have passed the act there are still federal laws that must be navigated through before citizens can legally buy and sell cannabis.
This is where I think it will really come out from the public, where they stick with what they no and are too stubborn to pass such an act. Also I do not think other states will endorse this topic because of some of the states being highly conservative.
Even though the topic of legalizing pot is on subject there will be a large part of the population that fall under the category of being stubborn and insulating themselves.
