Media and Emotions

I recently came across this online story about a police officer getting gunned down. It is really heartbreaking and I almost cried. It’s amazing how we can feel these emotions from a video, movie, clip or documentary. I think it’s cool how media can make us feel a certain way. It was also surprising to me that a news report got me really emotional.

Do you like media that makes you cry/laugh? Or do you like straight-forward stuff like Animal Planet or the food channel? If you think about it, almost every type of media makes us feel a certain way. When I watch ESPN, I get angry or riled up when my team loses. When I watch The Real Housewives of ____, I feel sympathy for the people who make a fool out of themselves on camera.
