Women and TV News Broadcasts
5 pages in length. Viewer perception is not a finite entity; in fact, it can be readily argued that television news audiences are some of the most difficult to persuade. However, there exists somewhat of a disparity between genders with regard to the factor of trust, being that female respondents have demonstrated a more trusting approach than their male counterparts. Such an assertion can be based upon a number of theories why women might be more trusting of television news than men, with one of the most logical being that women are inherently more accepting of what is presented to them without feeling the need to question. Additionally, empathy plays an integral role in relation to the difference between male and female respondent confidence. Bibliography lists 15 sources.
Modern Day Television Reporting
The television reporting that was separated into news and current affairs is a thing of the past. News is no longer about reporting the facts, it is all about entertainment. Now a viewer can choose from a wide range of television reporting. News can mean anything from 'tabloid press' to information such as how to roast a chicken. This 6 page paper argues that the presentation of current events has become a competition in attracting viewers and, as such, has changed its focus from news to entertainment. The weather channel, Hard Copy and The Today Show all present events that are current, based on known fact and have an element of entertainment value. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
