Dissect Media Sociologically

Find a piece of media (song, movie, magazine or newspaper article, commercial) and dissect it like a sociologist. What are the messages being sent through this media? What’s being said? Who is sending that message (Hegemonic power, who are they? Disadvantaged group, who are they?) What underlying social values and beliefs are within it? What social problems is it addressing (if this applies)? What sociological concepts can you use to dissect and understand this piece of media?
