Dangers That Reporters Face.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Lauren Martone 4/21/03 Research paper Dangers That Reporters Face Most people are ignorant to the fact that news reporters face incredible risks within their profession. This fact is obviously clearer now due to the war coverage and the deaths of some reporters. There have been many fatalities of reporters over the past year, and it is discouraging to think that the only reason that the public is aware of any of these deaths is because it is a time of war. Most people are unaware of the dangers that reporter face when there is no war going on. Due to the fact that the media is so biased, I was defiantly fooled. One incident that was reported was the death of a German journalist and a Spanish journalist that were killed by an attack in Iraq. Julio Anguita, the Spanish journalist, worked for a newspaper called, "El Mundo," and Christian Liebig, worked for the German weekly called, "Focus." ...read more.

Middle

(Media content providers) The media portrays events and dialogues in particular ways so that you will think something was said one way, when it may have meant to be taken another way. (Media message) Basically, most American's believe what they are told, and the media takes advantage of this, in a way brainwashing America to believe what they want us to. (Consumers/ media content providers) The media seemed to hide the fact that reporters are in a very dangerous business. I, actually, at one point, wanted to be a journalist. Now I am actually happy with my decision not to pursue it. I know that there are perks to being a journalist, like adventure and traveling to exotic places, but I would rather have my life then do all of that. Without reporters, how would we get our news? Print media, (Media industry) such as newspapers and magazines, (Media products) and broadcast media (television and radio news corporations) (Media industry/technology) routinely use the services of reporters on assignment all over the world. ...read more.

Conclusion

She gave a lecture trying to inform the people about all the risks that the reporters endure during the courts of a story that are following. In the article, "A perilous profession," Cooper states, "There were at least 5000 "incidents" that called for assistance to journalists last year, but the media tends to focus more on the death toll." "Twenty journalists throughout the world died last year in the line of duty." The media has a greater range of coverage on the deaths of reporters because it is during a time of war. Society seems to like to know about casualties and the gory details when it comes to war because that seems to be the focus of reporters' stories, and the wide range of stories on the deaths of the reporters. I do believe that the media does exercise too much power in America. They should not be allowed to present biased news to the public and should let the people make up their own minds on what they want to believe. ...read more.
