Students today are bombarded with media messages that include news, not so newsworthy news, and moral outrage disguised as news.  Using the framework painted on the walls of the Salem Witch Museum about how moral panic creates or reinforces the status quo, students can begin to analyze how messages shape our understanding of the news we hear both in mass media and in their real lives.
