    Newspapers, even ones in small towns like Taylorsville, are part of the world of mass communication. Mass communication basically refers to a system in which information is distributed to the masses, whether it’s by print, airwaves, or more recently, over the internet.
    Mass communications can be effective in getting the word out about news and events, but it can also lead to mass confusion, mass misunderstandings and mass manipulation.
