How is it possible that media are able to control people’s behavior, and how is this related to the way Foucault argues that prisons function to control people’s behavior (even when they are not prisoners)?

Does the panopticon function primarily as a material/architectural technology, as a psychological device, or as some hybrid of these? Is this a useful distinction to make?
