Information Control by Newspaper.

Extracts from this document...


Information Control by Newspaper All newspapers have different ways of passing on the news to their readers. This often depends on the audience the newspaper is targeting. The four newspapers that I will be writing about all target various readers. I will be looking at which pieces of information newspapers would use when reporting about the invasion of the Central European state of Bernia by Cara. 'The Planet' is a tabloid newspaper that backs the government. It is happy with the way things are and has a large circulation of readers, most of which are working-class people. 'The Reporter' is also a tabloid newspaper, which supports the Labour Party and also the trade union movement. This newspaper targets similar readers to that of 'The Planet' but has a smaller circulation. 'The Enquirer' is critical towards the two main parties and is known for it's in-depth political and international reporting. ...read more.


'The Planet' would also avoid printing the fact that there were 150 UK casualties as this like the civilian deaths would lower the moral troops. This newspaper would probably show the photograph of the man who had been killed in hand-to-hand fighting in Bernia just to show how out of control the civil war was becoming. Newspaper B, which is 'The Reporter' is quite similar to 'The Planet' in some ways but probably doesn't support the government quite as much. I don't think that this newspaper would want people to know that there had been UK casualties but would tell people that civilians were dying. They could use the fact that civilians were dying as an explanation as to why British troops were being sent to Bernia. 'The Reporter' wouldn't want people to know that there were shortages of food and medical supplies as this could upset people. ...read more.


I think that this newspaper would show the photograph of the Bernian soldier thought to be killed directly as a result of British intervention. This would be to show that British troops could actually be causing more problems in Bernia than they were solving. 'The Daily Recorder' would probably talk about how there was civil war and how things were getting out of hand in Bernia. This would make it look like it was Britain's duty to help, as this newspaper is strongly patriotic. I think that 'The Daily Recorder' would avoid talking about the number of people especially British troops that had died. They might however, say that some troops were dieing and being injured whilst fighting for the people of Bernia. I think that this newspaper like 'The Reporter' would print the photograph of the Bernian civilians mourning over the deaths of their three children in the Caran bombing. This would once again make it look like it was Britain's duty to help the people of Bernia. ...read more.

  1. The Photograph never lies - do you agree

    This is where the camera can lie, these people have been caught in a split second, and their reactions not being a true representation of the situation they are in. It would of course be extremely harsh for a newspaper editor to accompany this photograph with a headline criticising a player's attitude, based on a picture that was purely chance.

    All these things are major competitors for newspaper owners and editors. The development of the Internet also improved the availability of news instantly. You can now dial up to the Internet and find out as much information as you want with different viewpoints on events.
