After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the White House wanted major media companies to help improve the U.S. image abroad. That hasn’t panned out.

Arango , Tim. "World Falls for American Media, Even as It Sours on America". 28 Novemeber 2008. <http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/01/business/media/01soft.html?_r=2&gt;.

 

In foreign countries, American media in the form of entertainment shows are extremely popular. However these shows does not improve the public image of Americans. For parts of the world, they still have a negative view about the American public. The fact that American media is being broadcast internationally and widely accepted reveals that foreign countries are becoming more interested in media of other countries. This source can be used to support that claim that the media is swaying towards an international theme.

Kumar, Priya. "Foreign Correspondents: Who Covers What" . January 2011. <http://www.ajr.org/article.asp?id=4997&gt;.

 

Since the last AJR census was taken in 2003, the number of foreign reporters, newspaper and TV station employ has decrease. Reduction of less foreign correspondent could result from two factors, the decrease in popularity from the public and the rise of the Internet. With more people around the world getting Internet access, there is no longer a need for a media to send a reporter over seas or higher one. The public can now just go online a look for an international story from the local media. This source can provide a point in arguing that with more foreign countries having their own media, this is reducing the American media's need of foreign correspondents.

The Google Map at the end of this piece is excellent. Nice find!

You could also mention how NPR seems to be the exception to the rule when it comes to the number of foreign bureaus per company.

Bryan Heng's insight:

MLA

Project for Excellence in Journalism. "The Growth of Foreign Media Presence." 11 February 2009. <http://www.journalism.org/analysis_report/new_washington_press_corps>.

 

In the last few decades the number of correspondents from various nations reporting about American news has been rising. With modern technology being made available to more and more countries, the media of each country is expanding to outside their border. Having a rise of foreign reporters dedicated in relaying American news story to their home country proves that the media is moving on to an international level. A country’s media is moving from focusing only on domestic issues to also focusing on international issues. This source can be used as an example that the media of other countries are moving towards a diversified form of media, including stories from around the world.

The Good News About Foreign Media Coverage

The Good News About Foreign Media Coverage | Media and its Diversifying of Nations | Scoop.it
This year's Overseas Press Club of America awards shows that, even if international reporting resources and bureaus are being scaled back, the quality is still excellent.
Bryan Heng's insight:

MLA

Osnos, Peter. "The Good News About Foreign Media Coverage". 8 May 2012. <http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/05/the-good-news-about-foreign-media-coverage/256872/>.

 

Although there is a major scale down of foreign correspondents in American media, the quality of the few stories are still superb. The majority of the stories that won various journalism awards were produced by American media outlets. To the general public, stories that won the awards are never publicize to the degree that makes it front page news, this results in the argument that the American media is responsible for the lack of awareness the public has about other countries. This source provides the counter point that proves that there are pockets of the media reporting on international news.

Good annotation. You can use this source in the final essay to provide a concession.

I am excited to see how you followed through on your plan for the source. Great overview of the best writers in Foreign Media Coverage. This will be useful in the Narration section of the Final Essay.

Foreign News Shrinks in Era of Globalization

Bryan Heng's insight:

MLA

Shaw, David. "Foreign News Shrinks in Era of Globalization" . 27 September 2001. <http://www.commondreams.org/headlines01/0927-03.htm>.

 

With the reduction of foreign bureaus, correspondent, and airtime for international news the American public has become less interested in international news. The results does not come from the lack of stories to report on or the public, it is the result of the media. The media is responsible in presenting international news in a way that will interest the American public and so far they have yet to accomplish that. This source can provide the point that the reasons most Americans are unaware about foreign countries is because the media does a poor or no job on reporting it.
