Thankfully, there were no injured parties at this Brazen Assassination Attack on a Politician Caught on Tape. The fact that the attempt was made in assassinating a very influential member of a political party member in Bulgaria,which we, the public were able to see, just moments after it happened, was a phenomenon on its own accord – in my opinion.
Just a few variations of what different outlets had to say, and prime examples to students studying this module of how every outlet today, has its own way of defining a news story. Every outlet may not be exactly the same and not every outlet will be true, but these examples identify how simple it is to be drawn into the opinion of what each news corporation tries to project.
To also access information today, has become way to simple, once again in my opinion. Some might call it useful and some might call it an obstructive tool. Useful because of the direct connection between the producer and consumer – helping information to reach the individual directly without having to consult a middleman e.g. TV series, then advert etc. The internet gives us the pleasure of pop-up windows. Some may call the internet an obstruction because of the information we read; we are force fed ideas simply across various platforms.
