Klapper (1960), the media are but a part of a nexus of mediating factors in the social milieu.
Because of their potential for solving problematic issues such as anomie, it is important to
examine media use and effects. In Las Vegas especially, where people are so unconnected with
each other or with institutions and groups in the community, the media may be the only link a
person has with the community. So, despite its limitations and obvious shortcomings, the study
hopefully took a small step toward understanding the tangle of variables associated with anomie
in a community where it is a potentially serious problem.
