Why what did you talk about

Why what did you talk about

you could have spoke about in newsbeat how audiences are targeted by shirkys theory of how audiences are active like web 2.o, bbc sounds, interactivity and schedulled bulletins, and then that attracts an audience but to an extent not really because bbc are still suffering budget cuts. For wotw you could have talked about how audiences dont need to be specifically targeted for a media product to be successful because wotw was targeted to a mainstream audience and even tho it had sense of moral panic and cultivation theory it was still famous because of the publicity it attracted due to historical context, or they could have done it on purpose because cbc needed the ratings/money to keep their network afloat

Reading this, I feel like a total failure lol
The radio question was nice but wtf was that first 20 marker and the regulation question 😃
Original post by hollyniamhx
im sure you diddnt fail, the audience positioning question i really diddnt understand, ended up writing about hall, encoding and decoding/hegemony/gender to attract a male audience to sexualise women, then for bond i started writing about britain and patriotism and im sure i was wrong lol

omg I started writing about patriotism too because of that stupid flag

whole paper was praying for daily mail regulation got stuck with the guardian
What did everyone write about for that. I just waffled about the Leveson inquiry as political context

I did the same thing. I talked about that and then how the guardian is committed to its role of the fourth estate and so whilst other papers practice consumer oriented regulation, the guardian is ott in its own self regulatory citizen oriented approach with the reader's editor and stuff. I have an absolutely sinking feeling that I wrote the 12 mark where the 9 mark goes and the 9 mark where the 12 mark goes tho in section a tho. and i'm convinced my extra paper is gonna get lost bc i wrote two extra papers as well as the extra space at the back.
