Introduction

Compare how the representation of celebrities reinforces or undermines their celebrity status in your two chosen tabloid newspapers. I am going to focus on two tabloid newspapers, the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror by comparing and contrasting on how the representation of celebrities reinforces or undermines their celebrity status. In an edition of both the Daily Mail and the Daily mirror on the same day, both newspapers have chosen to exploit the story of Michael Jackson being cleared of all ten charges and also from 20 years of prison.

Conclusion

The Daily Mail does also read, 'His health has visibly determined over the months of the trial', this is evidenced from the front page article beneath the photograph of Michael Jackson.

As a result after analysing both newspapers, both newspapers supported him. This is because both tabloid newspapers do not comment on his personal life whenever he was judged wrong, but also they don't discuss neither about him as being suspicious on him or try to show that he is guilty. Therefore it seemed to be as a reader that the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror reinforces Michael Jackson rather than undermine him. ?? ?? ?? ?? Tinius Pusparajah ...read more.
