What’s In My Bag?
Dr. Mike Robinson, LC Communication Studies Professor~
I have long made snarky and mocking comments about US Weekly’s attempts to normalize celebrities through its series of features that suggest stars are just like the rest of us while simultaneously promoting products. Recently though, it occurred to me that I may not have taken the difficulties that such articles pose for the unsung heroes of the magazine to write. So, in the finest tradition of experiential learning, I have decided to create my own “What’s in My Bag” article to see just what creating such a feature is like.
