Dear professor Townsend,
I am very much thankful for the guidelines you provided us on blackboard. I have chooses the topic “Media’s influence on society (negative or positive)” the reason I choose this topic is the rapid development of media. I want to find out whether people respond positively or negatively to the information spread to them through media. I am looking forward to your acceptance so that I may continue with my research.

Yours Sincerely;
