Media Comparison

This story is about the ongoing teacher strikes in Chicago. these strikes have caused schools to close, as educators go on strike against the city of Chicago.

Both of the stories contained the same information, however the news print version had more statistics and numbers in it, and less direct quotes. However it was much easier to read and gave you some facts that the broadcast did not.

The broadcast switched back and forth from showing some facts on the screen. In the back ground of these facts there was video of the protesters. It would then switch to different teachers, making the story more real.

Overall I think the main difference between the news print version and the broadcast is the way they made you feel. When I watched the broadcast the video, the music, and the interviews all made the story seem more real.

This is in contrast to the news print version. Although it gave the same information and some good quotes it didn’t have that emotional feel to it.
