Introduction

Media Coursework The Daily Mail and The Guardian reported an article in 1999 abut Aliyah Ismail, both had the same information, but reported in different ways. The Guardian which is a broad sheet newspaper set out so that the reader can make there own decision about what the are reading, where as the Daily Mail, a tabloid newspaper sets out to make the reader believe and agree with what they are read. Both have set out in different ways to reach this target. The Daily mail which has three pictures uses them to capturer the image of Aliyah as she was growing up from the age of three to the point of when she died. ...read more.

Response to the question

In summary, the report is OK. The report does state the different approach that the two newspapers take. However there is no mention of the articles themselves and the report should include the two articles, to allow the examiner to understand the student. The student writes a clear opinion, that the Daily Mail was biased within this report. The student has gone further, and explained there reasoning for this. This is quite good, as there have made a clear opinion, which is fine as-long as there have justified this.

Level of analysis

The student does analysis the articles quite well, and makes clear reference's to the images used within the articles and how these impact on the opinion of the public due to the images used.

Quality of writing

The report could have two screenshots which display the article (one from Daily Mail and the second from The Guardian), and the article text below the images. This would allow the examiner to understand which information, the student is talking about. As with a number of aspects, a person has to assume a number of things, which does cause confusion.
