Description

How “real” is reality TV? Why do magazine models look so great? How much money do musicians make from CD sales? Can radio DJs play anything they want? These and lots of other questions are answered in Media Madness --- the insider's guide to TV, music videos, radio, magazines, comic books, newspapers, video games and the Internet. Host Max McLoon gives pointers on how to analyze media and takes readers behind the scenes to reveal media workplaces in action.

With vivid cartoon-like illustrations bursting with color and movement, this comprehensive introduction to media has great kid-appeal and includes activities for readers to further explore concepts or try their own media making.
