There are many communication models
There are many communication models, and they all look alike. There is a sender and there are one or more receivers. The sender can choose a channel, and whatever channel she chooses, the message is distorted. The receivers are active or passive. It they react, maybe even if they don’t react, there is feedback. A channel is chosen for the feedback, and the feedback is distorted, if you like it or not. Miscommunication models would maybe be as better title.
