    From this, news stories with frames can have a huge influence on a citizen’s behaviour, attitudes and/or beliefs. News stories such as the one above that are about events and political issues do tend to contain both information and frames. Framing of stories can be intentionally misleading towards a certain audience as it has the ability to shape and frame people’s understanding of a certain person and/or policy. The Ponytail Scandal is a prime example of this concept as it shapes people’s perception on the Prime Minister John Key. Frames work by making some bits of information or knowledge more salient.…

    On social media there are stories, memes, and pictures mocking and calling out the government for corruption and treason to the public’s rights. Finally, the government is seen as unethical and overbearing to the public and doing so allows the newspaper to express its opinions on the matter. Doing so, the newspaper mocks and justifies the government being corrupted by power. So, the government in this newspaper is beaten down as a threat to the public.

    “Cheap internet rumor” often turn into “serious news” when the issues presented may be untrue (Bennett, 2012, 189). I think sacrificing quick interesting, dramatized news for fact based, investigative journalism is more important. The organizational routines and professional norms in the modern media organizations influence the way journalists report political news.

    Suddenly, it showed someone who would normally be a terrorist (by today’s standards), attempting to kill people and overthrow the government. He was willing to die for his people, his views and his stance. Whether people want to admit it or not, that plot line has influenced the way we think. We view people that stand up to the government as heroes whereas before they may have been viewed as seditious or an anarchist (like the time that Guy Fawkes was put to death for his actions). Additionally, anonymous leaks, similar to the information that V distributes to the people, are welcomed by the public, whereas before they were viewed as scandalous (or at the very least, quickly controlled by public figureheads).…
