My name is Melissa Bruinsholz (don't worry about the last name) everyone calls me Missy. I just transfered here this semester from BYUI and I am going into P.R.
My top five personal values are family, religion, life, education, and money. I believe that I have some similarities with the media's values. I think the media values drama and scandal, money, sex, politics, tradgedy/death/blood, and although I don't think they always do it, truth.
Looking at the values that I have come up with for myself and the media I know that I fit in well enough with education and money. However, I think there are some conflicts when it comes down to my value of family, religion, and life.
I don't predict these to be gigantic problems but I would be a fool if I said they wouldn't cause any problem at all. I hope that in the work force I'm not asked to do somthing I view as unethical or against my moral code, but I doubt that will happen. I guess that is what this class is all about, to push our values and see what we'll do. I know that I will have to make some judgement calls in my job, more than most people will because of the field I am going into, but I am excited to dig in and look at what we come out with.
