A DEMOCRACY NO MORE. THE IMPENDING AUTOCRACY OF MEDIA OWNER(DICTATOR)SHIP

This was the first post that I was extensively interested in and confident to post. Writing about concentration of media ownership allowed me to explore the importance of considering a variety of media theories when understanding the dynamics of contemporary media. With this post I felt as though my research allowed me to formulate my own opinion which I was extremely passionate about. Finally, I was able to fully understanding the implications on media fairness as a result of the dwindling number of ownership bodies controlling the media.

A TUG OF WAR BETWEEN CITIZEN JOURNALISM AND TRADITIONAL NEWS MEDIA; ONE OVER THE OTHER?

Over the course of both BCM110 and BCM112 studies, citizen journalism has been a recurring theme therefore this post allowed me to elaborate on the knowledge I had gained over the course of my studies. Writing this post allowed me to gain insight on my own perspective on the importance of alternative journalism avenues and allowed me to understand my belief in a future of citizen journalism. Being a produser myself, I was able to relate to the content which enhanced my argument. This blog also facilitated the use of a lot of material gathered over the course of my BCM112 studies.

MY CREATION IS YOUR CREATION? “EVERYTHING IS A REMIX”

This was probably my favourite post to write and irrelevant to its length was the one which took me the longest as I consistently got distracted by videos and relevant material. As I had previously written a blog post based on the implications of copyright I had a strong grasp on the fundamental concerns regarding a remix culture. So researching this subject allowed me to broaden my perspective on copyright and intellectual property which was my favourite topic of the semester.
