A blog about the use of place by the media. The setting of every production is important and people can learn from it. What are they learning? --that is what I will explore here.

American Idol V Begins
America Idol has begun its Fifth big season. As it does it shows people from a variety of places, yet it makes those places seem very similar. Whether in Detroit or Chicago [as with the first shows], the performers are the same as they were in other scites in the past. They look alike. They sound alike. A great geographic uniformity is in place.
