Textual Analysis of Local Newspapers

You need to fully understand the conventions of newspapers - and prove to
the examiner that you do – before making your own.

You must analyse at least three local newspapers in detail, with links to
the newspaper’s website/Twitter feed etc embedded in the blog.

YOU MUST WORK ON NEWSPAPER EDITIONS, NOT THE WEBSITES OF
THE PAPERS.


For each newspaper comment on:

The reasons the stories get in the paper

   •   Look at http://www.rssmediastudies.co.uk/main/newsvalues/ for an
       explanation of why certain things get news coverage while others don’t.

   •   Analyse a local newspaper to see what stories it covers and why. Use
       Galtung and Ruge’s news values to create a bar chart or tally chart.

Layout

   •   Paper size: literally measure its dimensions

   •   Columns – number and width

   •   Percentage of page devoted to images

Journalism

   •   The tone used in the writing: dramatic, exaggerated, calm

   •   Give examples and quotations
