Introduction

English Coursework Media Assignment Media refers to communication which is information passed onto people. It is all around us on TVs, Radios, Posters, and Billboards and on the internet. It can be put into bright writing, standout letters, be spoken out or even be a plain piece of writing as long as it informs or entertains the viewer. Media can tell exciting information which is called entertainment. It also gives you up to date information from any were in the world. Media is used a lot by companies and businesses to sell their products this is called advertising. Media can be laid out into bright colours to catch people's eyes, but that's not the only way of catching people's attention. Newspapers for instance rarely use colours; they find true interesting stories from the public or comment on major events from around the country or the world. Newspapers are one of the most popular forms of media, because they give a lot of information. Two types of newspapers are Tabloid and Broadsheet. Tabloid mainly makes stories which have puns and stories from the public and stories of major events. The tabloids language is easier to read than broadsheet. Broadsheet mainly makes stories of major events, financial news and maybe stories of the public but without puns and only take up a tiny proportian of the page. ...read more.

Middle

This caption is set in Italic bold type letters so it doesn't get misunderstood with the copy. This also sums up the story a little. The copy starts underneath the subheading and the first word student is set in capitals to emphasise that Phil is a student and is young. The first paragraph is in bold type because it tells a lot of the story in short. The first four paragraphs are under the sub heading and at the side of the picture. After the fifth paragraph it splits up into 4 columns which surround a banner saying exclusive and stating who wrote the copy. The banner stands out to the rest of the copy. The 2 papers are both at a reading age of about seven because the sentences are short and there are no hard and long words. It is also in an informal tone. Instead of them saying "a 20 year old man named Phil fell in love with-".They say "Phil,20, fell in love with,". They do this to make it easier to read and shorten the amount of lines to make this point. In some sentences they use dashes to link points instead of and, also they put 2 word in bold these are 'A year' and 'Older' they do this to make it standout and say that Phil lied ...read more.

Conclusion

The copy of the mirror is in three columns. Halfway down the first column is a title called Laugh, because the following article can be quite funny because Pats daughter is four years older than Phil. The Language is similar to the sun with short sentences and is in an informal tone. They use good describing words like lover boy, fibbing which is less strong than lying, this shows it is a reading age of seven and they use mature student just like the suns version. From analysing both papers, I have noticed a few differences between the two papers, some I have already mentioned. These points were included in The Sun but not in the mirror, "Pat received 21st Birthday cards from Phil's mum and dad". "Pat and Phil marry in July". These points were included in the mirror but not in the sun, "the couple are living together". "Pat feels like a teenager at heart". "Phil plans to confess to his parents that Pat is 43 years old". This point proves that The Mirrors story was brought out before The Suns story because Phil has already confessed in The Sun. The Mirror also explains about why they like each other and not people their own age. The mirror calls Phil Phillip and the sun calls him just Phil. The questions about these two papers are why they both claimed to have exclusives? ...read more.
