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.

Middle

being where she is but where she is safe, home, because the caption underneath the picture says that she "spent periods abroad with her Jordanian father", she looks like she is waiting. The other is a picture of where she died, the Daily Mail said she died in squalor, but if you look the flat as quiet nice. Both of the newspapers use information from the report into her death but the Daily Mail dose not state that as much as The Guardian because nearly all of the information from the Daily Mail is from the report. The Daily Mail uses facts rather that there own reports to persuade the reader into agreeing with them on the story. ...read more.

Conclusion

The Daily Mail is bias, with the facts and the parent's views they provide a strong view to blaming the social workers, also at the bottom of the article there is a caption about Carol Sensky, the social worker blamed for the death. The caption mentions her �200,000 detached house, it uses this to compare her life to Aliyah, although this may seem unfair to mention her, also her circumstances, she may be a social worker but maybe her husband is different, they do not mention his job or his wealth. Both of the newspapers are written if different styles, they also appeal to different readers, The Guardian appeals to people who have the time to read it and make up there own descisions, but the Daily Mail is aimed at people who like to read other peoples opinions and are keen on facts.

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.
