Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Coursework - The Media Assignment Introduction There are many different media texts and are showed in many different ways such as Television: - Sound, words, pictures, movie clips. Newspaper: - pictures, detailed sentences (attract the readers attention) sub headings (catch eye of readers). Flyers: - little advertisements (inform people about up coming events e.g. discos, parties trips and events) written in very brief detail. Radio: - Sound and detailed information that you could only listen to the purpose of this is to tell people about the world but it is told very very brief and quick. So the audience would like it that means that media texts are made for audiences just to be herd and sometimes to entertain and also make money to improve on their styles and the way they have explained things like the flyers just say there's a party its just advertising to make money and to entertain people by being published and being advertised how do you think people know that there's something new by media text like on the radio, billboards, flyers and leaflets its all being advertised by media text and then made money out of people who co operate with the things there have seen.

This was because the songwriters of these songs carefully made sure that the words made sense and were not dull and boring and of course fitted with the music like some other rap songs. Songs can be used for anything like using them for election campaigns or just relaxing and listening to the songs even passing a message to someone. But whichever way it is very important that they fit in with the music and the song isn't too long with dull and boring words. 2PAC LYRICS - 'LETTER TO MY UNBORN CHILD' To my unborn child..
