REVIEW OF JOURNALISTIC TEXT

Joe Haines, ‘Labour: 100 years of struggle’ Inside Labour February 2000

Joe Haines is a British journalist and was the press secretary to the former Labour leader and Prime Minister Harold Wilson. Later he joined the Daily Mirror as their political editor, as well as undertaking the post of the newspapers assistant editor.1

The following text was published in February 2000, commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the establishment of the Labour Party. The text highlights numerous key events and dates within the century that portray Labour in a positive light.

When the text was published, Tony Blair had been in office for three years. However during this time, Blair’s popularity was decreasing due to looming British military involvement in the Sierra Leone Civil War. This suggests that the text has been written at a time not only to celebrate Labour history but to also portray positively the Labour party and Blair due to the circumstances at this time.

This is firstly relevant as Haines argues that...

The text was published in a Labour publication and is aimed at those in support of the Labour party, meaning the at the article is extremely pro-Labour. (Example of language used/sentences)

Haines political orientation highly influences his style of writing. His socialist preferences and alinement to the Labour party therefore influence his selection of evidence and facts.

Haines presents the text in chronological order through sections, creating a timeline of Labour history.

There is a lack of consideration for opposing arguments, the text strongly highlights Haines’ opinion which portrays the Labour party positively.. Due to there being a lack of challenges from another belief throughout his case, this makes the text extremely one sided and in Haines's favor. However this is also due to the fact that it is…...

...English Essay Rewrite Compare and contrast Text A and Text B Text A- Satirical Elegy on the death of a late famous general Text B- An obituary of William Davidson Both texts are similar, in the fact that they both are reminiscence on a person’s life after their death. Many differences, however, can be seen throughout the poem written by Jonathan Swift and the Obituary. The opening of both Texts is contradictory as Text A opens with a series of exclamations, ‘His Grace! Impossible! What, dead!, ’which gives an impression of surprise at the death but not a sense of grief is aroused. On the other hand, Text B embarks with a compliment ‘was in his element at the heart of the action’; both openings give a clear implication of the withdrawal of the rest of the text. The structure of both are also at a contrast, Text A is an elegy so Is a farewell to the dead but the fact that Swift writes a satire elegy therefore removes the traditional aspect of an elegy. Text B is an Obituary, but although also a farewell to the dead, it is read at a remembrance or a funeral so is written with aspiration to honour William Davidson and not undermine him in the way that Text A is. Text A is written with a sarcastic and mocking tone, through the poem it is highlighted that the general has earned the disrespected he has received through the mention also of his failures with use of the parallelism of ‘Nor widows’ sigh, nor orphans’ tears’ which gives the impression that no grief is......

Jessica Lal - Journalistic Opinion

...Journalistic Public Opinion Jessica Lal Murder Case – Sue-Ellen Fernandes St. Andrews College TY BMM. 4259 Introduction Media is regarded as one of the pillars of democracy. Media has wide ranging roles in the society. Media plays a vital role in molding the opinion of the society and it is capable of changing the whole viewpoint through which people perceive various events. The media can be commended for starting a trend where the media plays an active role in bringing the accused to hook. There are different reasons why the media attention is particularly intense surrounding a legal case: the first is that the crime itself is in some way sensational, by being horrific the second is that it involves a celebrity either as victim or accused. The concept of trial by media is not a new concept. There have been many occurrences in the past where the media has been accused of conducting a trial on its own and passing a verdict even before the court does. There is a conception that the Jessica Lal murder case is was also a media trial. Case Study On 29 April 1999, Manu Sharma had shot Jessica Lal in front of 200 witnesses at a Delhi restaurant, Tamarind Court, where she was a......

...began a fourth.[B] From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it. Austen's works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century realism.[4][C] Her plots, though fundamentally comic,[5] highlight the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security.[6] Her work brought her little personal fame and only a few positive reviews during her lifetime, but the publication in 1869 of her nephew's A Memoir of Jane Austen introduced her to a wider public, and by the 1940s she had become widely accepted in academia as a great English writer. The second half of the 20th century saw a proliferation of Austen scholarship and the emergence of a Janeite fan culture. Biographical information concerning Jane Austen is "famously scarce", according to one biographer.[7] Only some personal and family letters remain (by one estimate only 160 out of Austen's 3,000 letters are extant),[8] and her sister Cassandra (to whom most of the letters were originally addressed) burned "the greater part" of the ones she kept and censored those she did not destroy.[9] Other letters were......

To Text or Not to Text

...To text or not to text Text messaging has become a convenient way to communicate or maybe an obsession. Texting as is it is commonly referred to today, allows individuals to literally to express their thoughts, information, and maintain relationships with the tips of their fingers. The use of the text message has redefined the way in which our society communicates with each other. Would you believe that 11% of people have sent a text message during sex! Wow! This trend seems to have become an addiction. Text messages are usually read within 5 minutes of being received and responded to instantly. Though this function has many benefits, it has created several negative problems as well. The cost to ones safety as well as the general public has made texting a highly debated subject. I prefer to just pick up the phone and make a call. It’s quick, it’s easy and if you don’t get an answer, you just leave a message or call back later. Thought of as a convenient way of communication, texting with technology advances faster than etiquette has contributed to the erosion of our society. The power of text messaging is one that has redefined how the world communicates and those that choose to use it have a responsibility to use it correctly. Text messaging allows for individuals to maintain person relationships for those that do not have the ability to see one another on a regular basis. As a study showed, the average teenager uses the text message for about 54% of their interactions......

Practical Book Review of Petersen Text

...Why don’t we listen better? Communicating and connecting in relationships by James Peterson is a book about effective listening and enhancing your communication skills. Listening is the building block for any relationship. Communication begins with a talker and a listener. The book explores self-discovery by converging different communication techniques which helps form healthy relationships. Peterson divides communication in three different parts. The first part is the stomach which is your feelings and emotions. The second part is the heart. The heart deliberates the different possibilities when functioning correctly. The third part is the head. The head is responsible for thinking and forming logical ideas. Flat brain syndrome is when emotions full the stomach and enlarge and thrusts the heart and causes the brain to go flat. When this syndrome happens the individual have to release their emotion in order to revert back to a state of correct thinking. The author shows that listening entails more than just hearing. The role of a talker and a listener progress the communication process and make it more effective in preventing the flat brain syndrome. Peterson defines the talker as the one who owns the problem and as the one who tries to solve it by first sharing thoughts and feelings without passing judgment, and attacking the person. The most important and critical role of the entire exchange is the listener. The listener does not own the problem and they are not......

Text a and Text B English

...The two texts address their audiences very differently in the beginning. Sue, in text A doesn’t seem to want to ask questions outright, so begins with a phatic utterance “how yer doin Kat” to establish a conversation before launching in. This demonstrates her feelings of intimacy, probably because she is familiar with the audience, as seen by this fact that she wants to keep the informality. It also exemplifies the context as this is spontaneous speech and she is not certain which way the conversation will go until it happens. In contrast, text B launches in immediately with the point and purpose with “Now I am fortunate” which demonstrates that he has attitude that precision and direct approaches are necessary, and an attitude he wanted to convey in order to achieve his implied purpose of gaining support. This is also done due to the context as people have shown up to hear this speech and the purpose is very clear and he knows what the audience want to hear. In Text B, the personal pronoun “we” is used to show the feelings are conveyed by the whole audience, which adds a personal touch and creates a sense of belonging and intimacy with a large audience, utilising the fact that we all have a human desire to belong. In Text A, Kat uses the personal pronoun “you” when “one” would be more correct, conveying the information in an informal way. This is typical of spontaneous speech as she has less time to think about what she is saying and she is speaking to a close and familiar......

The Text

...The text under stylistic analysis is written by Joyce Carry. It deals with the author’s emotions and feelings towards Clare, Tutin’s wife, who lost her husband. This text is about one businessman Tutin who tell in love with his secretary and wanted a divorce. After having a conversation with his husband, Clare was resigned after all. She thought it would be stupid to try to hold him against his will and he’d only hate her. Then we meet an Old Mrs. Beer who was the widow of a canon. This comparison the author used to show us that the old lady became a widow long ago and probably used to live alone. Then the author describes her appearance and her character . She was a short, stout woman with a red face and a heavy jaw — a pugnacious and indomitable face. And having known this description we can say it was a bossy person who liked to give orders to other people. The author compare her face with the faces in boxing booths, who have been in the ring all their lives and lost all their fight but still follow the game, in order to show that she already «lost her fight», but anyway like giving arbitrary commands . And when she got to know about this arrangement she came without any warning and broke into Tutin’s office, with an umbrella in hand as if about to beat him. This comparison author used to underline she had very serious intentions as to his son-in-low. «This was in the presence of the secretary who was taking a dictation — not Phyllis was no longer a secretary».

...heart a dilettante, and thinking over a pleasure to come often gave him a subtler satisfaction than its realisation. This was especially the case when the pleasure was a delicate one, as his pleasures mostly were; and on this occasion the moment he looked forward to was so rare and exquisite in quality that--well, if he had timed his arrival in accord with the prima donna's stage-manager he could not have entered the Academy at a more significant moment than just as she was singing: "He loves me--he loves me not--HE LOVES ME!--" and sprinkling the falling daisy petals with notes as clear as dew. She sang, of course, "M'ama!" and not "he loves me," since an unalterable and unquestioned law of the musical world required that the German text of French operas sung by Swedish artists should be translated into Italian for the clearer understanding of English- speaking audiences. This seemed as natural to Newland Archer as all the other conventions on which his life was moulded: such as the duty of using two silver- backed brushes with his monogram in blue enamel to part his hair, and of never appearing in society without a flower (preferably a gardenia) in his buttonhole. "M'ama . . . non m'ama . . . " the prima donna sang, and "M'ama!", with a final burst of love triumphant, as she pressed the dishevelled daisy to her lips and lifted her large eyes to the sophisticated countenance of the little brown Faust-Capoul, who was vainly trying, in a tight purple velvet......

Sicko - a Journalistic Review

...In the recent trends of globalization where there is an obsession in developing countries to follow foot-steps of Developed and Advanced Countries, implementing their policies page-to-page, the documentary Sicko by Michael Moore is an eye opener which talks about American healthcare system. It reveals deep-rooted corruption in the system, exposing the nexus between Politicians, Health Insurance companies and pharmaceutical industry who does not really care of the people but only interested in profits. The documentary brings forth a sparkling fact that 50 million Americans are uninsured, however Sicko is about the other Americans who are covered but have become a victim of insurance companies who uses every means possible to avoid paying for their customer’s medical expenses. The filmmaker conducts interviews with such victims of insurance companies who were denied care, former employees of insurance companies who reveals about the cost-cutting measures to give bonuses to insurance company doctors and others to find reasons for the company to avoid providing necessary treatments for policy holders and thus increase company profitability. The highlight of this documentary is how the politicians introduced a paralyzed health system, their nexus with insurance as well as pharma companies and other heart-touching interactions with victims as :  A taped conversation between John Ehrlichman and President Richard Nixon on February 17, 1971 led to the origins of the Health...
