The line between professionals and amateurs in news media has become blurred. As cooperation has increased between the newsroom and the business office, different “pro-am” relationships have arisen. These relationships have influenced the way news is reported. In addition, the boundary between commercial news organizations and non-profit media has blurred.

Media monopolies

Media monopolies occur when one or several companies dominate a certain area, such as television or publishing. Monopolies can be beneficial or harmful, depending on how they are structured. In some cases, a monopoly may allow one company to exert a strong influence over a market, facilitating propaganda and other political or social activities. Monopolies can also promote social inequality and injustice.

Public relations industry

Public relations is the art of gaining public attention for a company, brand, or issue. It can be accomplished through various types of media. For instance, a company may choose to advertise a new product, announce an expansion, or even make a pricing change. The purpose of public relations is to keep the company in the spotlight while at the same time strengthening a relationship with the public.

Soft news

Soft media is a broad category of organizations that provide commentary, art, and entertainment. These outlets may take the form of TV programs, print articles, or magazines.

Extreme behaviours

When we watch the news, we are exposed to extreme behaviours of people from different cultures. We are also exposed to crime, money, and extreme behaviours. The range of news topics is very wide and we can find local news online.

Visual narrative

Visual narratives can be effective ways to tell stories and convey information. The most effective visual stories have simple stories and a clear message. For example, in the film “The Odyssey,” a man is trying to find his way home. A story that is too complex or contains too many threads, such as the title, can become distracting.
