Media Analysis

Fall 2014

“Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.”—George Orwell

What is journalism?  In Bill Moyer’s “Journalism and Democracy,” and his interview of Communications professor Marty Kaplan on an episode of Moyers and Company, we find a provocative discussion about the current state of journalism as well as various definitions of what journalism should be. In contrast, if you look at a newscast or a mainstream media news web site, you will be deluged with what Kaplan calls “infotainment.”  This, of course, resonates with David W. Orr’s description of the American voter as existing in a “perpetual state of infantile self-gratification” and “distracted by consumption.” How does mass infotainment affect the citizen’s   

As you analyze your example, ask what is its meta-narrative? “Meta-narrative" means literally "outside the narrative." So, in the example of major news networks showing only a few seconds of the president's speech on climate change before switching to commentary, the narrative is the president is giving a speech; the meta-narrative is the ongoing commentary on climate change, the "some say" game, in which it doesn't matter what's in the president's speech because if you’re a democrat (liberal), you'll like it, if you’re a republican (conservative), you won't; no one ever asks about the truth.  Think on these things and answer: when does the meta-narrative become censorship?

Are facts enough? How do journalists tell the truth?

Your thesis should respond to: 

Use these concepts and questions to analyze how effectively the media has covered climate change. 

Your audience will be the educated public interested in media coverage of climate change.
