Can’t remember where I saw this, but I think it’s brilliant. (Bare safe innit).

So I’ve just read this article on the Media Magazine thing that the library graciously provides for us media heads and I’ll have to say its darn interesting. It talks about how since the legalisation of LGBT marriages, on TV especially drama shows, these sexualities have seriously been put in a better light however we still see a difference between how male gays are shown compared to female gays. However the article covers two TV drama shows which have put lesbians in the spot light and have made them the protagonist. We’re talking about Orange is the New Black and The L Word. The acceptance of these marriages are becoming everyday more normal and the minority which still doesn’t accept this are receiving less importance from TV and other media sources. This article showed me how TV is changing for the better in the acceptance of those around us.
There is an article in the Media Magazine about the TV show Catfished. Catfished is a reality TV show that exposes the reality of the online identities we adopt in social media. This article shows that people watch this TV show for many reasons such as giving the audience a topic to discuss with others, in the article we are also told that audiences discuss reality TV shows more than an other format. I think that the audience is also able to relate to the TV show because social media such as Twitter and Facebook are used by almost everyone all around the world and have become part of our everyday lives but not many people realise the dangers of these social media sites so this show can help to get the message across to others.The article says ” Instead of bombarding us with affluent celebrity types who live in palatial houses surrounded by the materialistic trappings of their good fortune (Real Housewives/Keeping Up with the Kardashians) this show exposes the desperate, lonely, individual seeking solace in adopting the persona of someone who doesn’t really exist in order to validate their own existence.” Continue reading “♥Media Magazine: Catfished article ♥”
1984 is the story of Winston, who unwillingly lives in a world where Big Brother – the all-powerful, controlling dictator of Oceania – is always watching. Members of the Party are expected to loyally follow his every word, not just by action but also by thought, even if what is going on around them goes completely against their common sense, even if the newspapers and media refer to a past that has been altered from what they remember. Winston knows that he is a thought traitor, unable to conform to double-think as he is too aware of how out of order the Party is. He knows that it is only a matter of time before he is caught, but all he can do is act like everyone else around him.
