What are sensationalized or exaggerated news reports called?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There is no one official name for this practice, but many people in the media call this "tabloid journalism," referring to the kinds of rumors and sensationalism often found in tabloids (such as the National Enquirer). This used to be called "yellow journalism," but that term is not used much in conversation, although you may still see it in a textbook about media history.

What is a major focus of the mass media?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is difficult to say there is only one focus. Cynics would suggest the focus is to make money, since the American system is funded by commercial advertising. But the mass media are generally supposed to perform the following important functions: they inform (through news broadcasts or through newspapers/magazines, for example); educate; entertain; and provide resources for transmitting perspectives about a given culture. Mass media are able to send these messages to a large and diverse audience, through such vehicles as newspapers, magazines, radio and television broadcasts, movies, the internet, and recorded music.

It would also be difficult to choose a major focus of the mass media, since many people rely on it for information, but just as many rely on it for entertainment. On the other hand, particular media (the plural of one single mass medium-- like radio, is "mass media" -- like radio, TV, and the internet) may specialize in certain functions-- newspapers became well-known for their focus on daily news (the function of providing information), while television became known for a focus on entertainment, for example.

What is a person that reports the news called?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There are actually several names: the person who is in charge of the broadcast and whose face you see reading most of the stories is called the "anchor" (it used to be "anchorman" but today many news anchors are female). The anchor has a number of reporters on the staff, who cover various stories. There are also correspondents, some of whom report from foreign countries. Thus, a person reporting the news on TV (or on radio) might be called an anchor, a reporter, or a correspondent. In print, sometimes a reporter is also referred to as a journalist.

What is the difference between news and current affairs?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The difference between News and Current affairs may be a little tricky. If care is not taken, one might think that they both mean the same thing.

Really News can be described as "Information about recent and important events", It could be an "Information reported in a newspaper or news magazine", or "A program devoted to current events, often using interviews and commentary". It could also be an "Informal information of any kind that is not previously known to someone". WordWeb (2010)

Current affairs refer to any event that just occurred, this means the affairs that are associated with the present.

News is different from Current affairs because not all current affairs make it to the news. For a current event to become News, someone or a reporter must have taken interest in the spread of such event. If not a current event may occur without ever getting into the news until later in the future.

In the same way, Not all news item are current events. A person may be interested in an old story. Digging up age long information about remarkable stories becomes news. So an event need not be a current event before it becomes news.

How are women portrayed in the media?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

One Perspective

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sydney from Alias, Kate from Lost, Scully from X-files, Murphy Brown, Rosanne, Ellen Degenerous, Mary Tyler Moore, Charlies Angels, any one of the numerous female detectives on any one of the numerous copshows, any one of the numerous female doctors or nurses on any one of the numerous doctor shows and any one of the numerous female lawyers on any one of the numerous lawyer shows portray tough, smart and independent women who fully understand their power and their potential.

Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Geraldine Ferraro, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Margaret Thatcher, Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, and Mother Theresa are all or were very real women who were rarely if ever portrayed as smaller and less confident and outgoing. In order to believe that the media portrays women as inferior one must find women who are willing to be that victim instead of being more like Buffy or Hillary. More and more in this modern age the world is populated with women who are free to be who they choose to be, and the media is not unaware of this and has for a very long time now, willingly praised and celebrated the free thinking woman, they are in fact, those most famous as women who believed they were subject to being smaller than men and less confident and out going don't tend towards fame.

Another Perspective

Unfortunately, there is a 360 degree view of women as they are portrayed by and in the media. While we do have all the positive role models as expressed above we also have that overabundance of advertising and media images that reduce women to sex objects and drive home the message that exposed bodies and looks are what count . . . sexy looks. If you notice the "strong" female characters on popular TV series, they are now required to show cleavage while at work which reduces their credibility especially when the cleavage is being displayed on a rough and tough detective.

The sexualized images of the women in music videos are especially damaging where those women have been reduced to simply an object for another's sexual use. They have no other purpose. The female characters in video games are highly sexualized and clothed so as to focus attention on their breasts and buttocks. The women in the 'girls gone wild' videos think they are expressing their female strength by exposing their breasts for the drunken, screaming male audience and the well paid videographer. Young teens are allowing themselves to be filmed while performing sex acts and then posting the videos on the internet. Many girls send nude photos of themselves via cellphone to any boy who asks.

The young women today are being bombarded with mixed messages and many are embracing the role of sex object. It is a tragic situation indeed. Unfortunately, many of the young women today help to perpetuate it.

What is the difference between news story and feature story?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The difference between a news story and a feature article - in terms of the imaginary world of Insect Media.

A news story informs us succinctly that, say, another fly has been trapped in a spiderweb.

The feature article explores the circumstances of the entrapment in detail:

- Why do we know about the fly's character? In other words, why did it fly so perilously close to a web?

- What was the lead-up to the incident? Had something provoked this risk-taking behaviour? Was the weather a factor?

- What do we know about this particular spider's history as a fly killer?

- Was there anything unique about the shape or location of the web?

- What lessons can be taken from this tragic incident?

A news reporter lays out the facts of what happened and sometimes includes reactions from affected parties. The feature writer is more forensic. They probe deeper, spending more time on the 'how' and 'why' of what happened. If they fail to go beyond the facts reported in news (and sometimes this is very difficult) they probably haven't succeeded � and probably won't be published.

By the way, both styles of writing are good skills for life whether you're a journalist or not.

News articles answer who, what, when, where, why and how. This means that the article answers the question:

1.Who was involved.

2. What happened.

3. When the event occurred.

4. Where the event happened.

5. Why the event happened.

6. How the event occurred.

A feature article is much more creative. It also tells about a news event, however in the beginning of the article there is a smaller creative story leading in to the main story that article addresses.

A newspaper article is where you discuss about what happened and what people said and then you add a conclusion, while a feature article has a cover story and then follows on in the magazine. it has quotes and endures picture and a big heading, so get artistic and make it flashy and noticeable

The news article writing style is the style used for news reporting in different traditionally and latest media such as newspapers, radio and television and social media websites. And a feature article is special human interest article that is not directly attached to a current news event. The feature article focuses on particular people, places, and events.

Asked by Wiki User

For over a year I have tried to get our elected or appointed members of Our Society to hear this. I AM the POS Nostradamus wrote of as the LAST chance for ALL MANKIND to evolve as a Species, and I will prove this, and I hope outnumbered will consider talking to me. I'm told I had throat cancer that depleted my thiamine so I now have a 20 hr memory that skips 30 yrs, and this is what I know. I have to learn everyday again for the first time that I am a convicted by a jury sex offender, that covers the POS Nostradamus wrote of, and this is my message. Treason has already been committed by Joe Biden with whomever else at the DOD when they allowed America to RUN from the Taliban LEAVING some Americans and over 80 BILLION $'s worth of America Military Equipment BEHIND to the Taliban America ARMED THE TALIBAN, that is Our legal/constitutional definition of TREASON, and because ALL of Our current elected or appointed members of Our Society are FULLY AWARE of this act of Treason being committed against We The People and have done NOTHING to protect We The People from this act of Treason, they are ALL by Our Law, from the local police to the DOD, legally incompetent. I AM the POS Nostradamus wrote of as the LAST chance for ALL MANKIND to evolve as a Species, and I will add this, we are a Self-Absorbed Species and if We The People fail to call out this Treason, we will All suffer until 2039, then Mankind will die off in a nuclear war. I also can't stop inviting things and get to patent for free due to my disability, and I can't afford a lawyer, nor can I understand the patent applications that I have. To hell with my inventions, I will find help with that someday, but if this Treason is not call out, we will All SUFFER. How about y'all calling me out on my being a sex offender, and I will try to answer any questions you have about being a POS sex offender, then let me explain to ALL the future of ALL Mankind. China and Russia care less what America/Biden has to say they recognize treason and will continue to act accordingly. The human species is a Deceptive, Self-Absorbed, Sexually Deviant, Murderous Species, and All I have to do is tell the truth, and we will survive. Treason has already been committed and nobody cares. John Joseph Price 336-930-4645. Confirm Treason with a Federal Criminal lawyer then call me and help me save ALL MANKIND. John Joseph Price 336-930-4645.

How old is Dorothy Krysiuk?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Before leaving Fox29 about six months ago, in fall 2008, Dorothy Krysiuk's responsibilities began at 5 a.m., with the Good Day Philadelphia program. Management wanted her to pick up the 5 p.m. shift. Traffic reporters John Ogden and Bob Kelly already were working morning and evening shifts, at NBC10 and CBS3, respectively. No explanations were forthcoming about management's reasons for, or Krysiuk's disinterest in, the longer working day.

Krysiuk graduated from Temple University. Her work experience included employment at Channel 10, before accepting her job at Fox29, in 2001. It has been suggested that Krysiuk wants a temporary break from work, and doesn't plan on rushing into employment with another outlet.

As of June 2010, Dorothy is on the air on Channel 5 WCVB in Boston, doing the morning traffic. She is employed by the company Westwood 1, that produces traffic reports for the station.
